When the Denver Broncos beat the Carolina Panthers 24-10 on Feb. 7, 2016, it was the third NFL championship for the franchise and the Broncos' eighth trip to the Super Bowl. The Broncos previously won back-to-back victories in the 1997 and 1998 seasons.
The Broncos have been an integral part of Denver's professional sports scene since 1960. One of the most popular NFL teams, the Broncos play home games at Sports Authority Field at Mile High where tickets have been sold out since 1970.
Four Broncos - John Elway, Floyd Little, Gary Zimmerman and Shannon Sharpe - have been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
The Broncos wore white uniforms at Super Bowl 50, the color which brought them their last big win some 17 years ago when Elway was the quarterback.
