Broncos playoffs-challenge trivia, day two: Test how big a fan you really are!

Yep, Tim Tebow and the Broncos are in the playoffs, and each day this week, to get you ready for Saturday's showdown with the New England Patriots, we're going to put real fans to the test with brain teasers from the Denver Broncos Trivia Game (the 1985 version, which I just found at a local antique mall). Warning: They're super-tough, just like the Broncos will need to be. Look below for our second batch of questions, then flip the page for answers. Question 1: "What quarterback was once loaned to the Broncos, only to be returned two years later to the Houston OIlers?"

Question 2: "Name the two Broncos players who made up the 'M and M Connection.'"

Question 3: "In the 1984 season, against what team did the Broncos score by recovered fumble returns on their opponent's first two plays?"

Question 4: "Who was the first number-one draft choice to actually sign with the Broncos?"

Question 5: "What three Broncos players scored three 4th-quarter touchdowns in the team's historical comeback against the Seattle Seahawks in Denver in 1979?"
