Denver Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno is in his fifth NFL season. In terms of NFL experience that puts him in the middle of road in the team’s locker room.

Julian Edelman Dubbed ‘Minitron’ After ‘Megatron’ Calvin Johnson by Tom Brady

Wes Welker never got a cool nickname from Tom Brady. The Patriots quarterback told Tom Curran from Comcast Sports Net that he calls Julian Edelman “Minitron,” after “Megatron” Calvin Johnson.

Kansas City Chiefs: 2013 Week 13 NFL Power Rankings (#7)

Last week: 7 (+0) Record: 9-2 There’s not a lot of shame in allowing 41 points in a game to the Chargers when you’re missing your top two pass rushers, especially considering the Chiefs were probably pretty distracted in between two games against Denver that would essentially decide the division regardless of what happened in the San Diego game.
