the team has arrived, at the hotel where they're staying, where there is a very, very large party. that's where cheryl preheim joins us. and we heard so much about this game being for pat, the team owner, and you got a chance to speak with anna bell, his wife? >> reporter: yeah, she just talked about what this day has meant to her. this the first time he hasn't
super bowl, and the whole bowl lend family came up, and she said the broncos have given a great gift to the family and community. she asked us to pass along a thank you to the fans in denver, those celebrating in the streets, or in their living rooms. she wanted to thank them for the loyalty, and perseverance to stay with the team, so thank you on behalf of anna bell bowlen. she is looking forward to getting back to denver, and here is the mayor. >> this team was ferocious, so i couldn't be more proud. a great victory for the entire region of denver. >> reporter: it really is something this is something the
and we will see that this week, tuesday will be quite a celebration. >> we didn't talk about it, but there's been plans being put in place for a celebration on tuesday. we'll start at noon, probably about 17th and wynkoop, and program starts at 1:00 at the civic center. everyone is invited. let's celebrate the broncos, and bring home the lombardi trophy. >> we shocked the world. and no one gave us a chance, and i'm so proud of the team, particularly that defense. you can't separate the team, but we got to give it up to the defense that was no -- they denied everybody. >> reporter: thanks, mayor. seemed like a home game at levi stadium, and that is certainly the sentiment here. there are a couple carolina fans who are staying at the hotel. they have been very gracious,
and malik jackson got into the end zone, and scored what proved to be a massive touchdown in the game. i caught up with malik earlier in the locker room. >> defensive performance, that also has to feel pretty good. >> it's just a blessing to be a part of this. von did it, everybody doing what they did, it's an honor to be with these guys. we played, i don't know, -- >> how cool is it for the defensive unit to get a mvp in von miller. >> it's awesome. we won the game off defense. >> you chucked the ball into the

>> i want to ask about peyton, to give him this, and the defense did. >> it's a blessing. it's a chance for him to be going out on top, and me to be able to help them, that's great to have someone go out on top. i hope it's not, but -- >> do you think he cares that he and the offense struggled? >> i don't think they did what they wanted to do, no turnovers, score points. that's what they did. >> reporter: you want to talk about pressure. how about gary kubiak, the man took this job knowing that this was the only outcome that would satisfy the boss, john elway. john fox won the division four years in a row, got to the super bowl and lost, and they decided to partways with him, saying it wasn't good enough. kubiak comes in and got the job
rob caught up with the head coach earlier. >> when john said this one's for pat, did it give you goose bumps? >> just amazing, rod. everything we've been through this year, the type of team we were, you know, he's a fighter, mr. b, what he's done for this offerings, what he's done for us. very special. >> reporter: when you came here, you had a dream. this is the dream, how does reality compare to what happened? >> it's interesting how the year spanned out, we've been through, the guys pitching in. it's the best defense, the one thing we did the whole time, we held true to what we were, and that's how we won. we got into another grinder and get out. >> reporter: it's trust to say
steelers, just got company with the best 2015 team. >> i knew they needed to finish it of 0, and they knew that, and they were playing a different type of offense. >> reporter: winning the super bowl means a lot to a lot of coaches, but to come back to colorado where you were a big part, and bring the city this state a super bowl championship, how does that feel? >> it means everything to me. it's my football home, and to be here as a player, and being in super bowls as a coach, it's the proudest moment of my football life. >> thank you, buddy. >> reporter: how about the architect of it all? john elway, the man that brought gary kubiak in, emanuel sanders,
the defense, being talked about as one of the best ever. >> reporter: john, i know you waited a long time to say those words. >> you're right, i waited a long time, and for the -- fortunate to be sable to say it. the coaching staff, and the players played hard. we'll take one home next week, and hopefully, i know pat will cherish it. >> reporter: how does it feel as an executive, not as a player to hoist that trophy. >> it's great. you have the defense stepping up the way they did, von miller was unbelievable, and stayed after them all day. we did enough, you know, to win the football game. just a great team win, and really proud to be a part of it. >> reporter: four turnovers, seven sacks that led to 15 points, people talk about the 1985 bears, the great panthers teams, the steelers, they have
defense. >> they do. they just kept getting stronger and stronger, tremendous all year, but the playoff were unbelievable. but putting the pressure on cam newton, they did great. >> you made the move to bring in gary kubiak. he was able to pull the right, to get everything done. made the right decisions. >> i'm so happy for gary, he did such a tremendous job. and staying on top of everything, and i'm just happy for him, what he went through last year, and coming back and do it in the last year, i couldn't be happier for a guy i love. >> broncos, super bowl champions for the third time. >> reporter: the 2015-2016 season will go down as perhaps peyton manning's worst. the other would be his rookie

left? >> reporter: and what we've been seeing, the thousands of people dispersing on their own, there are still a couple hundred people outside the tavern and lodo bar and grill, but are still dancing and jumping around. there were thousands of people that were blocking the intersection of 20th and market. those people have since dispersed. people their way back into bars, back home. and really, it's gone on without incident, denver police have been kind of lining outside of the crowds, but haven't seen any violence, or force needed. the crowds are pretty much just celebrating as they should. nothing is getting out of hand, a different scene back in the late '90s. >> that is the good news for this, anyway. and police have learned a little bit -- >> they told us they studied the
