NFL Playoffs Bracket 2012: Broncos Have 'Huge Challenge' Against Patriots, Says John Fox

John Fox and his coaching staff need to prepare the Denver Broncos for Saturday's divisional round contest against the New England Patriots, but they want to keep the team "even-keeled" leading up to the big game, as Tom Kensler writes in the Denver Post. The players will have Monday and Tuesday to savor the victory before they start prepping for the Patriots.

Fox knows this is a big game, but he's not letting it get to him either:

"It will be a huge challenge. But at this point in the playoffs, it always is."

And should the Broncos continue on the path to the Super Bowl, they will need to accomplish it on the road. If victory comes in New England, the Broncos will head either to Baltimore or Houston. And from there it's a move to neutral Indianapolis. And that's just the way the Broncos want it to be.
