It's been a difficult year for Colorado, which has been affected by the senseless violence of the Aurora movie theater shooting and the devastation of multiple wildfires.
|The Denver Broncos will show their support for Colorado by wearing a special decal on their helmets during the 2012 season.|
The decal -- located above the player number on the back of helmets -- features a ribbon around the insignia of the state flag.
"We had a lot of stuff happen around Denver in the last year and we just want to bring some happiness and joy -- and hopefully some wins -- back to Colorado this season."
The decal will be unveiled Sunday night when the Broncos host the Pittsburgh Steelers.
