  • John Elways final game.

    This is absolutely the perfect ending to a great career of a great player. A Super Bowl win. And after all the crap he had gone through with not even winning a Super Bowl title in his first 15 years as a pro football player with the Denver Broncos. I mean, come on! You have to admit that is pretty amazing. You could not write a script for this. John Elway threw for one touchdown, a 79 yard bomb to Rod Smith, ran for another touchdown. He completed 18 of 29 passes, threw for 336 yards, and was named the games most valuable player. Wow! Those are some pretty darn good statistics! The Final Score: Denver Broncos 34 Atlanta Falcons 19. This has been cheese1994 with another exciting review. I hope all you guys enjoyed it.moreless
