Did you notice?

  • Practices might be more entertaining than games for the Broncos, at least when these two Alabama greats line up against one another. 
  • The Patriots have an atypical rookie hazing routine, because of course they do. Weird to see a quarterback in the No. 50 jersey.
  • lt's not an on-field record, which makes it arguably more impressive.
