The Denver Broncos are officially set to honor one of the greatest and arguably the best teams in the city's sports history when they celebrate the anniversary of the team's first Super Bowl Championship team, the 1997-98 squad that rolled through the playoffs and upset the defending champion Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl 32.

Although the Broncos would go on to win another one the next year to go back-to-back, and then again after the 2015 season, there's just something special about that first time.
