ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - The Denver Broncos have returned to the practice field for the first time since clinching a spot in the Super Bowl.
It was 9 degrees at the start of practice Thursday, a possible preview of what could greet them next week at the Meadowlands.
That's perfect preparation for the Peyton Manning, who loathes leaving anything to chance and even prepared for cold weather his first year in Denver in 2012 by dunking his right hand in ice water before some practices.
For all his greatness, the knocks on Manning is that he crumbles in the cold and has just one championship ring, something he could change when the Broncos face the Seattle Seahawks in the first outdoor Super Bowl ever held in a cold-weather city.
