JERSEY CITY, N.J. — They started lining up at the crack of dawn, and didn’t leave until the last bus left.

Broncos fans showing up at the team’s Dove Valley Training Facility to send off the team as it travels to the East Coast. The Broncos play the Seattle Seahawks next Sunday in Super Bowl 48.

About 9:30 a.m., the first bus, full of Broncos staff, pulled out.  A half-hour later, with a State Patrol escort, four buses full of Broncos, followed.

The team arrived about 3:30 p.m. MST.  The NFL Facebook page posted images of Peyton Manning and others leaving planes. FOX31 Denver reporters were also on hand.

The team then  boarded the ship Cornucopia Majesty to meet with the media. During the press conference, Peyton Manning said he does not plan to retire after this season.
