Back in May, the National Football League announced their plan to publish the three "most memorable games" of each of the 32 teams on YouTube. The NFL expanded their partnership with the most popular video platform on the internet and fans not only get to reap the benefits, they helped decide which three games to publish in their entirety.

Here are the three "most memorable games" Denver Broncos games to be uploaded in August.
Super Bowl XXXII
A game no Broncos fan can forget—John Elway wins his first Super Bowl ring, after three previous failures in the big game. The Broncos defeated Brett Favre and the heavily favored Green Bay Packers 31-24 to bring home the franchise's first Lombardi Trophy.
Running back Terrell Davis would be named the MVP of Super Bowl XXXII for his Herculean effort, overcoming a migraine headache and temporary loss of vision to rush for 157 yards and three touchdowns.
There are so many iconic images from Super Bowl XXXII, but perhaps the most timeless was when owner Pat Bowlen hoists the Lombardi Trophy, proudly proclaiming, "This one's for John!".
Super Bowl 50
Elway closes the circle on that special moment with Bowlen 18 years eariler, when he was able to hoist the Lombardi as the Broncos general manager, saying, "This one's for Pat!"
The Broncos defense lambasted Cam Newton and the heavily favored Carolina Panthers 24-10. The win brought home Denver's third World Championship and validated Elway's gamble on an aging league MVP coming off four neck surgeries.
Like his front office boss, Peyton Manning was able to ride off into the sunset and retire a Super Bowl champion. Linebacker Von Miller would be named MVP of Super Bowl 50, after he terrorized Newton, sacking him 2.5 times and forcing two fumbles that resulted in 14 points for Denver—the exact margin of victory.
1986 AFC Championship (The Drive)
For Broncos fans of the '80's, this was the game that saw the birth of the Elway legend. Trailing Bernie Kosar and the Cleveland Browns by seven, Elway would take possession of the ball on their own 2-yard line with 5:32 left in the game.
What would transpire was a 15-play drive, culminating in a five-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Mark Jackson, tying the game, sucking the life out of Cleveland Municipal Stadium and wresting away momentum from the reeling Browns.
The Broncos would go on to win the game in overtime 23-20 and advance to Super Bowl XXI, where they would eventually fall to the New York Giants.
