Rival Teams: Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders, New England Patriots, Seattle Seahawks
Denver's most successful professional sports team is arguably the Broncos. Having appeared in eight Super Bowls and won three, the Broncos have seen major success in three different decades. However, the team was hardly successful out of the gate when it debuted in the American Football League in 1960. The Broncos finally got their first winning record in the 1973 season. By this time, they were in the National Football League. Denver advanced to its first Super Bowl in 1977; however, the team lost to the Dallas Cowboys. In the '80s, quarterback John Elway led Denver to three Super Bowl appearances, all of which were losses. The Broncos wouldn't win the big game under Elway until 1997. He followed this with a second straight title in 1998. The third Super Bowl win came in 2015 during quarterback Peyton Manning's reign.
