Reviewing The Decade: Year 2003

After making a big splash on the offensive side of the ball by drafting Clinton Portis and already having a dominant defense, Denver made another big offensive move in 2003. The Broncos traded for Arizona Quarterback Jake Plummer, who would lead the Broncos back to the Playoffs. In 2003, the Denver Broncos finished the season 10-6, second in the AFC West, and made it to the Wild Card. New found QB Jake Plummer lit a spark on the Broncos offense that scored 381 points in 2003. Jake "The Snake" finished the year with a 91.2 quarterback rating, while also rushing for 205 yards and 3 scores. Clinton Portis had a second consecutive year with 1,500 yards on the ground, and finished the year with 1,905 yards from scrimmage. Tight End Shannon Sharpe combined with Portis scored 134 points in '03. The Broncos were getting very close to making a Super Bowl run.
