The Denver Broncos will host the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday night.
It is the third consecutive year that the Broncos will travel to the Lombardi Trophy-winning team’s home stadium.
Peyton Manning is the first player in the history of the NFL to be drafted No. 1 overall by the Broncos.
The Denver-based team was born in Denver, and the city is the home of the Broncos Stadium, the team’s new practice facility.
This year’s AFC Championship game is the Broncos’ first since the franchise relocated to Denver in 1999.
Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders and linebacker Von Miller were also named to the NFL’s All-Pro teams.
The Broncos’ victory over the Pittsburgh Panthers on Monday night will put them in the midst of a six-game winning streak.
The last time the Broncos were victorious in Pittsburgh was in 2006, when the franchise beat the franchise-record winning 49ers 49-28 in the NFC Championship Game.
Manning and the Broncos defeated the Panthers 35-20 on Sunday.
The first-place Broncos will take on the NFC’s No. 3 team, the Seattle Seahawks, on Sunday at 6 p.m. ET.
