Super Bowl XLVIII will be the first ever outdoor Super Bowl to be held in a cold-weather city, so naturally the weather has been a point of concern. However, the Broncos have assured fans multiple times that the cold weather won't be a problem for them come Sunday.
"I feel comfortable where we're at as far as it goes with elements," head coach John Fox said to press.
The Broncos will practice at the New York Jets practice facility in Florham Park, New Jersey this week before heading to MetLife Stadium to take on the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks had even further than the Broncos to travel, and landed safely and exited the plane in much colder temps than the team may be used to. Unlike Colorado, the Seattle temps have been in the 40s of late, much less frigid conditions than the 'Hawks will have to get used to this week as they practice in New Jersey. Both teams are taking it "day-by-day" as far as practicing outdoors is concerned.
