Time for more gamesmanship.

One week after the Colts picked up ex-Patriots receiver Deion Branch in the days leading up to the AFC divisional playoffs, the Broncos announced Tuesday afternoon they have signed former New England defensive back Marquice Cole.

In a conference call with reporters Tuesday afternoon, Patriots coach Bill Belichick said that the team could travel to Denver Friday instead of Saturday for this weekend’s AFC title game.

“Yeah, it’€™s a possibility,” Belichick said. “We’€™re working out our arrangements for the week here now.”

On Monday, there was word that it would be very hard for Patriots fans living in New England to acquire tickets to the AFC championship in Denver because of a team policy.

Now, the Broncos are warning those same fans to be careful not to get duped into buying counterfeit tickets.

Patriots fans need not worry about the focus of Tom Brady at home, so says his supermodel wife.

Gisele Bundchen spoke recently in New York about the atmosphere in their Boston household as he prepares to make another run at the Super Bowl.

Bundchen says her husband knows how to zero in on the playoffs.

Brandon Spikes apparently doesn’t need surgery after all.

The Broncos may be without starting corner Chris Harris – out with an ACL tear – but safety Mike Adams has already delivered a blow.

FOXBORO — The odds are not overwhelming.

The 14-3 Broncos are favored by just 4 1/2 points heading into Sunday’s AFC championship against the 13-4 Patriots at Sports Authority Field in Denver. Take out the home field advantage and that’s less than a field goal separation according to the odds makers.

According to multiple reports out of Denver, an MRI on the knee of starting cornerback Chris Harris revealed a torn ACL that will sideline him for the rest of the postseason, including Sunday’s AFC championship game against the Patriots.

Patriots linebacker Rob Ninkovich and defensive back Devin McCourty checked in with Mut & Merloni on WEEI’s Patriots Monday to discuss Saturday’s win over the Colts and the upcoming AFC championship game against the Broncos.
