ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- The Denver Broncos are steamed over suggestions by Peyton Manning's critics that the four-time MVP crumbles in the cold.

Manning, who spent his first 14 seasons playing his home games inside a dome in Indianapolis, has a 3-7 career record, including playoffs, in games in which the temperature at kickoff was 32 degrees or below.

In all other games, he's 170-76.

With the Broncos, Manning has lost two notable cold-weather games, at home in double-overtime against Baltimore in the playoffs and in overtime at Foxborough, Mass., two weeks ago. He also beat Kansas City in cold weather at home last season.

The forecast for Sunday's game at Sports Authority Field against Tennessee calls for temperatures in the mid-teens with snow and light wind, an improvement over the near-zero temperatures they practiced in this week.
