DENVER (Ticker) -- The Carolina Panthers already have a victory at one daunting AFC West venue.

On Sunday, the Panthers again face a critical game when they meet the Denver Broncos at INVESCO Field at Mile High.

After a season-opening home loss to Green Bay, the Panthers went on the road the next week to post an impressive 28-17 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium.

The Panthers endured a 27-10 loss at home last week against Atlanta, putting them in another huge spot here. They also have road games against Philadelphia and Seattle in the next three weeks.

Carolina again could be without Stephen Davis , who has missed the last two games after undergoing knee surgery.

Against the Falcons, DeShaun Foster rushed for just 51 yards and a touchdown. Jake Delhomme threw for 308 yards, but was intercepted twice

Thanks to a defense that has allowed just 14.3 points per game, the Broncos have won three of their first four contests. They rank second in total defense, giving up just 244.3 yards per game.

Jake Plummer threw a five-yard touchdown pass to tight end Patrick Hape and Jason Elam kicked three field goals, lifting the Broncos to a 16-13 victory at Tampa Bay last week.

Matchup to watch: Panthers center Jeff Mitchell faces middle linebacker Al Wilson .

Series: Denver won the only other a meeting, a 34-0 rout in 1997.

Next week: Carolina visits Philadelphia, October 17 Denver visits Oakland, October 17
