By the time John Elway reached Super Bowl XXXII, he was at the tail end of his legendary career.
Unfortunately for him, that career was without a ring despite three cracks at it previously.
On try No. 4 against the favored Green Bay Packers, Elway and the Broncos seized the moment. His signature play in the contest came late in the third quarter with the game knotted at 17.
Elway scrambled on a 3rd-and-6 from the Packer 12. With Leroy Butler approaching him near the first down, Elway dove and got hit by Butler, which sent the Denver signal-caller spinning in the air. When he landed, however, he had the critical first down.
Denver would score two plays later and went on to win, 31-24.
