How many Super Bowls have the Denver Broncos won? List of championships, appearances, last Super Bowl win
The Denver Broncos have enjoyed their success over the years, but not without their fair share of heartbreak.
The Mile High outfit have reached eight Super Bowls, joint second most along with Pittsburgh Steelers and Dallas Cowboys. However, the Broncos have been victorious on half the number of occasions as the Steelers, and two fewer than the Cowboys.
The Broncos joined the NFL in 1960, the same year as the Cowboys, and it was Dallas who they would meet in their first Super Bowl 18 years later. That game is famous for all the wrong reasons if you are a Broncos fan, as quarterback Craig Morton threw four interceptions and finished with a passer rating of 0.0 before being replaced by Norris Weese.
Remarkably, considering Morton's performance, that Super Bowl defeat was by a small margin compared to some of the Broncos' other appearances. Denver reached three Super Bowls in four seasons between 1987 and 1990, but lost all three by a combined 96-point margin.
The Broncos finally put their Super Bowl jinx behind them in 1998 and 1999 as the great John Elway led Denver to their first two championships.
Another disappointment followed in 2014 against the Seahawks, but Denver's most recent appearance in a Super Bowl was a winning one thanks in large part to a standout defensive performance from now-Buffalo Bills linebacker Von Miller.
