Broncos Headed to Super Bowl XLVIII

Posted Jan 19, 2014

The Denver Broncos are AFC champions and will represent the conference in Super Bowl XLVIII.

DENVER -- The Denver Broncos are Super Bowl-bound.

For the first time since now-Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway walked away with his second Lombardi Trophy after the 1998 season, the Broncos have a shot at a world championship.

They got there with a 26-16 win against the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game, avenging an overtime loss in Week 12 of the regular season.

Before that, the Broncos took down the AFC West-rival San Diego Chargers in the Divisional Round of the playoffs after earning a first-round bye and the No. 1 seed in the AFC thanks to a 13-3 regular season.

Now the franchise is one win away from Super Bowl title number three.

On the first day of training camp, Head Coach John Fox didn't shy away from the expectations surrounding the team.

"Our goals are set high," he said. "From our owner on down, he wants to win a championship."

It marks the seventh Super Bowl berth in Broncos history and the sixth under the leadership of Owner and CEO Pat Bowlen.

Denver now has the second-most Super Bowl appearances of any team since Bowlen's first year of ownership in 1984. If San Francisco wins the NFC Championship Game this afternoon, the 49ers will also have six in that span and tie for second behind only New England's seven.

The Broncos now have two weeks to prepare for Super Bowl XLVIII, which will be played at MetLife Stadium on Sunday, Feb. 2, with kickoff scheduled for 4:25 p.m. MST.

Their opponent will be determined in the NFC Championship Game between the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks this evening.
