The Denver Broncos began when the team was chartered a member of the American Football League in 1960. The Broncos have played in the city of Denver throughout their entire history.
The Broncos did not win any titles as members of the AFL. Since the 1970 AFL–NFL merger, the Broncos have won 12 division titles, and played in six Super Bowls, following the 1977, 1986, 1987, 1989, 1997 and 1998 seasons. They won Super Bowl XXXII and Super Bowl XXXIII.
Their most famous player is former quarterback John Elway, starting quarterback in five Super Bowls and holder of many NFL records.
