Down 20-13 in the AFC Championship Game against the Cleveland Browns, John Elway and the Denver offense field the ball at the two-yard line with 5:32 remaining. Fifteen plays and 98 yards later (and without ever facing a fourth down), the Broncos tied the game on a five-yard touchdown pass from Elway to Mark Jackson. Denver eventually won the game in overtime on a Rich Karlis field goal.
