The 2002 season was the Denver Broncos' 43rd in professional football and their 33rd in the National Football League.

With the sudden retirement of Terrell Davis in the preseason, Denver had to rely on rookie Clinton Portis, who provided an instant spark to the Broncos running game. Despite his contribution, however, the Broncos finished with a 9-7 record and narrowly missed the postseason.
