FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- The Broncos braved the cold for their first full practice of Super Bowl week, working in pads for nearly two hours after a 30-minute walkthrough session Wednesday.
Denver practiced on the synthetic turf outdoor field at the New York Jets training facility. By the end of practice, the temperature dipped to 21 degrees.
"It was great," Broncos coach John Fox said after practice. "We're pretty much weather-proof. We practice in this stuff all the time. Being in Denver, we've played in a few different elements. We practiced numerous times in single digit, played in single digit, played in wind. We've practiced in snow many times. We're pretty much ready for anything."
Fox has chosen not to use the indoor field at the Jets plush headquarters for practices this week, opting for the synthetic turf outdoor field and the type of natural elements that will greet his team at Met Life Stadium on Super Sunday.
