ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- Due to the quirks of the NFL schedule, John Elway only faced Dan Marino twice over 16 seasons. On those rare occasions, he knew he had to bring his game up a notch.

The main reason to get amped, Elway says, "is because of the fact that you know you have to play well because the quarterback on the other side is a real good player."

It's the sort of perspective the ex-quarterback feels free to offer now that he's part of Denver's management, not preparing for another big game the way Peyton Manning and Tom Brady are this week.

The two premier quarterbacks of their era square off for the 14th time Sunday when Denver travels to New England. Brady leads the series 9-4.
