It is known, simply, as “The Drive.” Quarterback John Elway led the Denver Broncos back from defeat numerous times, but his performance in the AFC championship game against the Cleveland Browns topped the list of his heroics, elevating him to superstar status.

Trailing 20-13 with 5½ minutes left in the fourth quarter at Cleveland, Denver took over on its two, 98 yards away from the tying touchdown. “I suddenly flashed on something I was thinking about before the game,” Elway said later. “Great quarterbacks make great plays in great games. That’s what it’s all about, isn’t it?”
