The Denver Broncos were founded in 1960 as a charter member of the American Football League (AFL).
The team's first head coach was Frank Filchock, who led the team to a 6-8 record in its inaugural season.
In the team's second season, they hired a new head coach, Jack Faulkner, who led the team to a 7-7 record.
The Broncos experienced their first winning season in 1973, when they finished with a 7-5-2 record.
This was also the team's first season in the newly-formed AFC, which was formed when the AFL and NFL merged.
The Broncos continued to have success in the following seasons, and in 1977, they made their first appearance in the Super Bowl, where they lost to the Dallas Cowboys.
In the 1980s, the Broncos experienced one of the most successful periods in franchise history.
Led by quarterback John Elway, the team made it to the Super Bowl three times, winning back-to-back championships in 1997 and 1998.
The team has continued to be competitive in the following decades, winning its third Super Bowl in 2015.
