From the Denver Broncos Headquarters: ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Broncos alumni and Pro Football Hall of Fame finalists Terrell Davis, Steve Atwater and John Lynch will join the Broncos’ and Patriots’ team captains as honorary captains for the coin toss of Sunday’s AFC Championship Game.
It’s a stage befitting the trio, who each won in this round en route to at least one Super Bowl for each player.
Atwater played in four conference-title games, winning three; Lynch played in three, winning one; and Davis won both AFC Championship Games in which in he played.
The three are part of a group of 15 players being considered for the Hall of Fame’s 2016 class, which will be decided on Feb. 6 during “NFL Honors,” an awards special on the eve of the Super Bowl.
