NFL: Cleveland Browns at Denver Broncos Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Do you suddenly find yourself with a little more time on your hands than usual? While it’s nice that the NFL is the one sport, for now, that seems to be unfazed by the Caronavirus pandemic, actual games are still a long way off (hopefully).

So what’s a Broncos fan to do?

The NFL has made available, a few for the next couple months, NFL Game Pass. While the archive only reaches back to 2009, there are some great full-length classic Broncos games to be seen. If you want to games from John Elway’s glory days in the 1980’s and 1990’s, check out YouTube there are a few great NFL sanctioned videos and some really great ones that are hiding.

So what should I watch? Here are 3 games from the McDaniels/post-McDaniels eras that you may have forgotten about... If you can get the thing to work. I’ve already locked myself out of it on two different accounts and I am an in-season subscriber. Go figure. You’ll have to tell me how great they really are, I guess.

2009

The Denver Broncos started out 6-0 and were off to one of their best starts since 1998. What could possibly go wrong in this first year of Josh McDaniel’s tenure as head coach of the Denver Broncos? Rather than answer that question, do yourself a favor and watch this gem that features the historic mustard and brown 1960 original Broncos uniforms in their third-to-last win in the season, over the New England Patriots.

Week 5: Patriots at Denver Broncos - October 11

2010

After watching what may have been McDaniels’ greatest win, be sure to check out their first win without him! A rookie Tim Tebow wills the Denver Broncos to victory over the Houston Texans and future Broncos Super Bowl winning coach Gary Kubiak.

Week 16: Houston Texans at Denver Broncos - December 26

2011

Everyone has seen the pass from Tim Tebow to Demaryius Thomas to seal the Broncos first playoff win since 2005, but do you remember where it all began? While the first 56-minutes of the broadcast are about as exciting as tooth surgery, the last few minutes of this game set the tone for an incredible season that Steelers fans would love to forget.

Week 7: Denver Broncos @ Miami Dolphins - October 23
