The Denver Broncos beat the Cleveland Browns in Mile High Stadium in the AFC Championship Game 38-33. It is the second straight year; the Broncos beat the Browns to reach the Super Bowl. A year after rallying with “The Drive,” the Broncos hold off a Browns’ comeback thanks to “The Fumble.” Trailing 38-31 with just over a minute left, Cleveland’s hopes are dashed when Ernest Byner fumbled at the two-yard line trying to get in the end zone.
