Signature Moments In Broncos History: Down Goes Okoye

As the lockout drags on, we thought it would be fun to go back and look at some of the signature moments in Broncos history. We'll continue the series over the next few days and weeks, if there are any moments you think we should include, just send us an email!

Former Denver Broncos safety Steve Atwater was one of the hardest hitting safeties of his time. After being named defensive rookie of the year, Atwater became a house-hold name after a huge hit during the second game of his second season.

One of the biggest and most powerful backs of his era, Kansas City Chiefs running back Christian Okoye, "The Nigerian Nightmare" met his match in Atwater and Denver's defense. The hit, one of Atwater's greatest of all time, will always be remembered by Bronco fans, and Okoye.
