The Denver Broncos came into pro football in 1960 as one of the founding members of the American Football League. Throughout their ten years in the AFL and then their presence in the NFL following the merger of 1970, the team has been an important and often successful organization. Much of this has been owed to the players who have quarterbacked the team over the years.
One of the most popular ways to gauge if a quarterback has had a great game is to see if he has passed for 300 or more yards in a game. A quarterback who has done this is thought by many to have been able to be in complete control of the other team’s passing defense.
For the Broncos though, who has the most 300 yard games in team history?
It should come as no surprise that the team record for most 300 yard games is held by Denver legend, and member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, John Elway. During his time with the team, Elway threw for 300 yards or more in 36 different games.
Here is a look at the Broncos’ all time leaders ranked by how many 300 yard passing games they had during their time with the team (stats are current through the middle of the 2010 season).
