Jan. 25, 1998
Playing in his fourth Super Bowl without ever having won one, John Elway faced a pivotal third-and-six in the third quarter of a 17-17 tie with the Green Bay Packers. While the audience (and apparently the Packers' defense) expected the Broncos to go to 2,000 yard rusher Terrell Davis, Elway took the ball on his own. Instead of sliding, Elway dove head first with three Packers' defenders converging on him, causing the 37-year old Elway to flip in the air for the first down. The Broncos would score a touchdown on that drive and win their first Super Bowl in franchise history.
