KUSA - With Sunday's victory still lingering, Denver Broncos coach John Fox said Monday the Broncos are always looking ahead - especially with the biggest game of the season on the horizon.

Denver is headed to its seventh Super Bowl, and Fox said he spent most of Monday morning as a logistics specialist. The team will practice later this week at Dove Valley and leave Sunday for New York to start Super Bowl week.

"There's lots of planning that is involved, so it has to sink in pretty fast," Fox said of the 26-16 win Sunday for the AFC championship. "We have to make lots of plans."

The players have meetings the next three days and won't practice until Thursday. That's when they will put in the gameplan for Seattle. "We haven't dug into to them too deep yet," Fox said.

The coach said running back Knowshon Moreno, who left Sunday's game because of a chest injury, had X-rays of his ribs and everything was OK, and he will be day-to-day.

Fox also spent time defending Wes Welker. New England coach Bill Belichick said Monday morning that the Broncos receiver was trying to "take out" Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib on the play where Talib was injured.

"I haven't seen tape or seen his comments, so I don't feel I can comment on that," Fox said of Belichick. "I know Wes Welker is a great player, high integrity, and we were not doing anything with intent."

Added Julius Thomas: "I don't think Wes would go out there and intentionally hurt anyone."
