NEW YORK (Reuters) - The Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks had their first look of the week inside MetLife Stadium on Saturday with Denver coach John Fox sensitive about prying eyes on Super Bowl eve.

The Broncos' afternoon walk-through in sweats was light and fun, although security workers kept having to shoo away stadium employees trying to catch a glimpse of practice and Fox did not keep his team on the field for long.

"Typical Saturday practice," Fox said.

"Just a review, pretty much. Maybe not everything we're going to do, because you don't know what security is like here. But it was beneficial."

The only Denver player not expected to participate Sunday night is defensive tackle Sione Fua, doubtful with a calf injury.

Fox said he encouraged his players to soak up the moment.

Quarterback Peyton Manning took several photos inside the locker room with various team mates and later posed on the field

with Denver's former double Super Bowl-winning quarterback and current chief of football operations, John Elway.

After practice, the players' families were invited onto the field to take pictures and enjoy the day.   Continued...
