Just because you play football doesn’t mean you are a football fan.
You may love to play, but not be that interested in the sport. I know a lot of NFL players if they are playing on a Monday or Thursday night, won’t even watch football on Sunday.
With that being said, most know the teams and divisions except Ryan Tannehill.
“I wasn’t a huge pro fan growing up; I wasn’t loyal to any one team,” said Tannehill, “so I don’t really know the divisions, and even really conferences.

Brady Quinn replaced Matt Cassel at quarterback for the Chiefs early in Thursday nights preseason finale in the hope that some work with the offensive starters would prepare him for the regular season.
The game, which the Chiefs wound up losing 24-3 to the Packers, turned into an eventful one for Quinn. After he made some big third-down plays but also cost the Chiefs some points...

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Kansas City Chiefs are heading toward their preseason finale Thursday night at Green Bay with what appears to be an identity problem.

Much debate has been circling for some time on whether the National Football League should shorten the preseason from four games down to two.
