"They're a good team," Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said Wednesday. "When you look at their football team, everybody's got core players and guys that get a lot of attention. We know who theirs are. When you look at the film, the reason they're a great football team is because of the core of their team is so solid. I mean so many good football players and so well coached. We know their history of raising their own players and those types of things. You see it. You see guys, as you study the film and get ready to play them, just how important all their players are to their football team."
Kickoff at Sports Authority Field at Mile High is set for Sunday, November 1, 6:30 p.m. Mile High time (that's 8:30 p.m. Eastern).

Scouting the Enemy: Packers edition
The Denver Broncos face their toughest opponent this season when the Green Bay Packers travel to Mile High and for a battle of undefeated teams on Sunday Night Football. In this article, MHR's Christopher Hart takes a deeper look at the Broncos opponent.
DirecTV's NFL Sunday Ticket has expanded its online streaming service. Verizon subscribers can watch games live with the NFL Mobile app (subscription required, and usual TV blackout rules apply even online).
National radio provided by WestwoodOne Sports (Kevin Nugler play-by-play; James Lofton color analyst). Colorado can listen on KOA (850 AM) or The Fox (133.5 FM) with Dave Logan (play-by-play), Ed McCaffrey (color analyst) and Andy Lindahl (sideline reporting).
The Denver Broncos are healthy - except for their rookies, that is. First round pick Shane Ray (OUT/knee), second round pick Ty Sambrailo (DOUBTFUL/shoulder), and third round pick Jeff Heuerman (INJURED RESERVE this offseason/knee) are all expected to miss the game.
But DeMarcus Ware should play after missing Week 6, and Demaryius Thomas is off the injury report completely. So it's more good news than bad.
"I want to play better every single week," Peyton Manning said this week. "I promise, like all my teammates, we're out here working hard, we're trying to get better and we want to do our part. We need to play better, especially starting this week against Green Bay. Our defense has their hands full. Green Bay is going to make some plays offensively. We have to be able to do our part to score some points. We've got our hands full going against their defense. They are No. 1 in points. It doesn't come easy, but we're continuing to work hard to try to improve. I certainly want to do my part better, as well."
The Broncos are 3-point underdogs to the Packers at home, despite their undefeated record.
