Denver Broncos: Was Matt Prater’s suspension too much?

Last season, Matt Prater established himself as the best kicker in the league. He missed only one field goal, would kick them through easily from more than 50 yards away, and even broke a 43 year old record when he kicked in a 64 yard field goal. But this year, he will have to wait to help out the Broncos, since he will be suspended for the first four games of the season. Prater...

Minnesota Vikings: Final preseason game against the Titans

For most teams in the NFL, the fourth and final preseason game involves their starters playing very few snaps, even they even see the field.
