Since 1960 the Denver Broncos have grown into a team that is followed by legions of fans throughout the Rocky Mountain region, United States and the world. An original franchise of the American Football League, the club reached the National Football League's pinnacle by capturing its first World Championship by virtue of a 31-24 victory over the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl XXXII. One year later the team was able to follow-up on the previous year's feat by winning it's second title. The organization remains the last NFL franchise to win back-to-back Super Bowls.
