Patriots to head west Friday to get ready for Sunday’s AFC championship game in Denver

FOXBORO — The Patriots will be getting a head start on getting acclimated to the Mile High City.
The Patriots will fly out to Denver Friday after practice as they prepare to get ready for the Broncos in Sunday’s AFC championship.
This isn’t unusual as the Patriots and other NFL teams have frequently traveled two or three days before a game when making a cross-country trip.
Weather shouldn’t be a big factor Sunday as the forecast calls for partly sunny skies and temperatures in the mid-to-upper 50s for the 1 p.m. local time (3 p.m. ET) kickoff.
