The 1968 Denver Broncos season was the ninth season for the team in the American Football League. The Broncos improved their record from the previous season by posting a record of five wins and nine losses. They finished fourth in the AFL's Western division for the sixth straight season.

There were threats of the Broncos relocating to Birmingham, Alabama, Atlanta and Chicago.[1] Floyd Little became the first player to lead his conference in rushing for a last place team.[2]

The 1968 season was the first in which Denver wore their trademark "D" logo on their helmets.[3] They would wear this uniform through the 1973 season, altering the shade of orange in their jerseys in 1974. Their helmets would remain the same until changing for the 1997 season.[4]
