FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - 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 type of natural elements that will greet his team at Met Life Stadium on Super Sunday.

Fox was pleased with the flow after the travel and various commitments connected to playing in a Super Bowl. Wednesday is typically when the focus toward the game increases, given the full-scale practices.

"I wanted to see how well they would re-boot, get re-charged and practice what we've put in," Fox said. "They recalled it and it went very well. We had a very good practice."

The Broncos had a sense of normalcy on a few levels.

Peyton Manning, as usual, was in command and precise with his throws. He seemed unaffected by the elements.

"Very sharp," Fox said. "What I've noticed, he had to get used to weather over the past two years. I think he's done an unbelievable job, which I think people forget."
