The Broncos took the field late Friday morning for their final full practice before Sunday's AFC championship game against the New England Patriots.

The Broncos, who are 4 ½-point favorites, don't have any players listed on their injury report.

The Patriots, who had an early practice Friday, are scheduled to fly out to Denver on Friday afternoon.

During a media session before the Patriots left New England, quarterback Tom Brady was asked if he was excited to visit Denver, the first NFL city where recreational marijuana use is legal.

Brady quipped back: "Are you excited about that?"

He also said he's unconcerned with teammates falling to pot's temptation while in the Mile High City.

"Hopefully not," Brady said. "This is a very important game for us and it's a business trip."

Patriots coach Bill Belichick had little time for the matter.

When asked if there had been any specific advice to the Patriots players to avoid the now-legal recreational marijuana in Denver, Belichick said, "I think we know what the NFL policy is on that."

For the record, marijuana is still considered a banned substance by the NFL, regardless of the city the players are in.
