The 2000 Denver Broncos season was the team's 41st year in professional football and its 31st with the National Football League. It also was the team's final year at the famous Mile High Stadium.

The Broncos rebounded from their previous output, winning 11 games and finished 2nd in the AFC West. Denver's season ended with a 21-3 defeat to the Baltimore Ravens in the Wildcard round. The Ravens won the Super Bowl that year.

With running back Terrell Davis still struggling with injuries, Denver turned to rookie Mike Anderson, who had a successful rookie campaign and was named Offensive Rookie of the Year following the season.
