The Denver Broncos will be celebrating their 24-10 win over the Carolina Panthers with a parade through downtown Denver on Tuesday, Feb. 8, per the team

The festivities will kick off at Civic Center Park at 10 a.m. MT with a concert featuring Big Head Todd and The Monsters, 3OH!3 and Funkiphino. The parade itself will commence at 12 p.m. MT at 17th and Wynkoop Streets and will ultimately end at Civic Center Park at approximately 1 p.m. MT, followed by a rally for the team. 

Denver.org has more info on the full parade route. Television and streaming information for the parade has yet to be announced.

As for the players, all eyes will be on Peyton Manning, who managed to deftly sidestep any talk of retirement in his postgame interview with Tracy Wolfson of CBS, per Chris Wesseling of NFL.com:

I'll take some time to reflect. I got a couple priorities first. I'm going to go kiss my wife and kids. I want to hug my family. I'm going to drink a lot of Budweiser tonight, Tracy, I promise you that. I'm going to take care of those things first. Definitely got to say a little prayer to thank the man upstairs for this great opportunity. I'm just very grateful.

It's doubtful that when Manning said he would take some time to reflect, he meant he would spend two days making a decision before announcing that he would, or wouldn't, retire at the team parade. If he has any desire to play again at all, he'll likely gauge what the interest would be for his services before calling it quits.

Certainly, he'll likely be able to pick from a bevy of broadcasting, coaching and front-office positions once he does retire. So the future Hall of Famer has plenty to consider, making any announcement Tuesday unlikely.

In the same vein, Super Bowl MVP Von Miller is unlikely to tip his hand about his offseason plans, as he's set to become the most sought-after free agent on the market. Anything he says could be used as leverage against him.

Nonetheless, when asked about his free agency after the game, Miller did say, "It's going to be a peaceful thing," per Jeff Legwold of ESPN.

It's unlikely he would elaborate beyond that Tuesday.

Make no mistake about it, though, Miller will secure one of the most lucrative contracts for a defensive player in NFL history this offseason, either with Denver or elsewhere. Not only did he dominate during the regular season—he posted 35 tackles, 11 sacks, four forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries—but as ESPN analyst Herm Edwards told the Mike & Mike radio show, "Von Miller was the best player on the field in each of the last two weeks."

Remember, folks, he shared the field with Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski and Cam Newton in those games. He took his game to a whole new level this offseason.

As for the rest of the Broncos, well, expect a spirited parade, especially for the veterans who lost to the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl two years ago. And, of course, after two weeks of hearing about the league MVP, Newton, and being predicted to lose by the majority of the country, the Broncos will certainly enjoy playing the "nobody believed in us" card.

People certainly believe in them now.
