If this isn't the best possible way to welcome the New England Patriots and show them just who they're going to be playing against this Sunday, we don't know what is.

Crews at Denver International Airport on Friday modified Runway 8 to greet Tom Brady and the rest of the team. 

A tweet sent by DIA officials showed crews from the paint shop adding a 1 to Runway 8, forming the number "18," which is starting quarterback Peyton Manning's number.

Welcome to Broncos Country, Patriots! We're hoping this is the only touchdown the New England team will see in Denver.
