Which close Broncos loss would you change the outcome for?

The two toughest close losses for the Broncos came in 1996 and 2012. Which of the two hurt worse?

Divisional Playoffs - Baltimore Ravens v Denver Broncos

If there was one close game the Denver Broncos lost where you could change the outcome in, which would it be?

For me, there are only two that come to mind. The first came during the 1996 AFC Divisional Round of the playoffs against the Jacksonville Jaguars and the second during the 2012 AFC Divisional Round against the Baltimore Ravens.

I feel like either game, had the Broncos won, would have resulted in a Super Bowl appearance. If I could only choose one, I would agree with Jeff here and pick the 2012 game as I think that team would have ultimately won the Super Bowl that year, while that 1996 squad may not have been able to top the Green Bay Packers that year.

Which one would you change?
