WHAT TO WATCH FOR: The Broncos will face a tough early test as they visit New England to take on the Patriots. Quarterback Peyton Manning has not squared off with three-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady since November of 2010, when Manning threw for 396 yards in a 31-28 loss to the Pats.

KEY MATCHUP: Broncos secondary vs. Patriots tight ends
In both matchups last season, Brady was consistently able to find his tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez. In the regular-season matchup, Gronkowki and Hernandez combined for 13 catches, 182 yards and a touchdown. In the AFC Divisional Playoff matchup, Brady hit Gronkowski 10 times for 145 yards and three touchdowns.

NOTES: Both teams made the playoffs a year ago as division champs...This is the 43rd meeting between the Broncos and Patriots in a rivalry dating back to 1960...The teams met twice in 2011, once during the regular season in Denver and once in the AFC Divisional Playoff round at New England.
