  • The Drive was an offensive series in the fourth quarter of the AFC Championship Game played on January 11, 1987 at Cleveland Municipal Stadium between the Denver Broncos and Cleveland Browns. Broncos quarterback John Elway, in a span of 5 minutes and 2 seconds, led his team 98 yards in 15 plays to tie the game with 37 seconds left in regulation. Denver won the game in overtime with a field goal, 23–20. The 98-yard drive ranks as pro football's prototypical clutch performance. Elway and his team spanned almost all of the 100-yard football field. According to an article by Sports Illustrated columnist and Colorado resident Rick Reilly, when Elway started the drive, Broncos offensive guard Keith Bishop said of the Browns, "We got 'em right where we want 'em!" Of note is that Cleveland could not force a fourth down against Denver. (en)
  • Als The Drive wird eine Angriffsserie („Drive“) im letzten Viertel des AFC Championship Games, einem der beiden Halbfinalspiele der National Football League der Saison 1986, zwischen den Denver Broncos und den Cleveland Browns bezeichnet. Denvers Offense um Quarterback John Elway erzielte dabei in 5 Minuten und 2 Sekunden 98 Yards Raumgewinn in 15 Spielzügen und glich das Spiel aus. Denver gewann in der Verlängerung nach einem Field Goal mit 23:20 und zog in den Super Bowl XXI ein. Dieser Drive gilt als protypisch für einen Hall-of-Fame-Kandidaten und erreichte Kultstatus. (de)
  • Con il termine The Drive ci si riferisce a una serie offensiva nella finale della AFC giocata l'11 gennaio 1987 al Cleveland Municipal Stadium tra i Denver Broncos e i Cleveland Browns della National Football League. Il quarterback dei Broncos John Elway, in un arco di 5 minuti e 2 secondi, guidò la sua squadra a percorrere 98 yard di campo, pareggiando la partita a 37 secondi dalla fine dei tempi regolamentari. Denver vinse la partita ai supplementari con un field goal, fissando il risultato sul 23-20 finale. Il drive da 98 yard è diventato la serie di giocate decisive nel football professionistico per eccellenza. Elway e i Broncos in quell'arco di tempo percorsero quasi tutte le 100 yard del campo da football. Secondo un articolo dell'editorialista di Sports Illustrated e residente del Colorado Rick Reilly, quando Elway iniziò il drive, l'offensive guard dei Broncos Keith Bishop disse dei Browns: "Li abbiamo portati nella situazione che volevamo!". Degno di nota il fatto che i Browns non riuscirono a forzare alcun quarto down in quel drive contro i Broncos. (it)
