There must have been a lot of broken furniture and bruised thighs in the Gronkowski household 10-15 years ago. Rob, Dan and Chris Gronkowski all play in the NFL. Three members of the same family playing in the NFL is extremely rare, let alone three from the same generation. Since all three of the Gronkowski brothers who play in the NFL are offensive players, they rarely get a chance to line up against one another. Chris, the Broncos fullback, is hoping that changes on Sunday. If both Rob and Chris find themselves on special teams this weekend, Chris intends to send little brother a message. “It’s going to be crazy when we finally step on the field together,” Chris told Tim Graham of The Buffalo News. “I might get a chance to go against him on kickoff. “We always talk about how I’m going to drill him. He says he’s going to lay me out. What’s really going to happen is we’re probably not even going to have the chance to block each other. But I’ll still try to light ...

NFL First Quarter Report Card: Denver Broncos

The Denver Broncos knew that the spotlight was going to shine brightly on them after signing Peyton Manning. John Elway was fully aware that would be the case.

McGahee keeps proving the doubters wrong

Willis McGahee wasn't supposed to make it to the NFL, much less pinball his way through pro defenses for a decade. So said the naysayers after he tore three ligaments in his left knee in his final college game at Miami. Ten years later, McGahee is still proving the doubters wrong.

The New England Patriots' offense is rolling again as it heads into a game against a team whose defense it dominated twice last season.
