The Patriots will travel to Denver to take on the Broncos this Sunday. This will be the Patriots' second of four AFL legacy games in which the Patriots wear their red and white uniforms, replicating the ones worn by the 1963 team. The Patriots and Broncos have a long history together '€” these two teams played each other on Sept. 9, 1960, in the inaugural game of each franchise. Denver won the game 13-10 at Boston University Field. Last year, the Patriots crushed the Broncos at Gillette Stadium, 41-7. Former Patriots and current Broncos Lonie Paxton and Daniel Graham both talked to Denver reporters about their old team. Brian Dawkins and Andra Davis discussed the challenges the defense will face when they play Tom Brady and the Patriots. And Kyle Orton and Brandon Marshall both praised New England's defense for being well-coached and smart. Lonie Paxton says he has to keep his concentration on the field Sunday despite seeing many familiar faces on the opposing side. Paxton says Josh McDaniels and Bill Belichick are not alike. Daniel Graham says that there are a lot of good players on the Patriots defense. Kyle Orton says the Patriots defense is still very good despite having different players. Brian Dawkins stresses the importance of staying humble despite the undefeated record. Dawkins talks about the skills Tom Brady brings to the field. Andra Davis knows the Broncos will be facing a tough challenge with Tom Brady. Brandon Marshall says the Patriots are well-coached and play smart. Marshall says last year's blowout loss to the Patriots doesn't mean anything.
