11/06/2005 - Before they watched their son play even one game, Lorinzo and Karen Foxworth received the first of many gifts football would bring to their lives. "Domonique made a Super Bowl ring when he was 7," Karen said. "I still have it, as a matter of fact. It's made out of paper. So he made this little paper ring, and it says Super Bowl 40." Come on. The ring says Super Bowl 40? "Yes, it does," Lorinzo said.

11/06/2005 - John Lynch says he has no idea what the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' record was at the midway point of the 2002 season, a season that ended with the Bucs winning the Super Bowl. Similarly, chances are no one remembers that, after eight weeks of the NFL season a year ago, the Philadelphia Eagles were undefeated - or that the Kansas City Chiefs were 8-0 at this point in 2003. The difference between the Bucs and those other squads that fell short of what seemed so attainable halfway through the season was Tampa Bay "got better as the season went on," Lynch said of that team - which, by the way, was 6-2 at the midpoint. "A lot of teams start fast and then their technique goes, but we continued to get better," said Lynch, a former Bucs star. If you're looking for signs, look for that in a team."

November 6, 2005 — On the day the Broncos became serious Super Bowl contenders, John Elway completed 10 passes for 170 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions. Coach Mike Shanahan still describes Denver's 14-10 playoff win over Kansas City — which was played on Jan. 4, 1998 at a frigid Arrowhead Stadium — as the most physical game he's ever been involved in. The last man standing was Terrell Davis, who scored both of the Broncos' touchdowns and finished with 101 yards rushing on 25 carries against a bruising defense that knew No. 30 was coming. The victory led to back-to-back Super Bowl titles to cap Elway's Hall of Fame career and made Shanahan a coaching mastermind. Davis — an NFL and Super Bowl MVP — rushed for 2,008 yards in 1998 and for at least 100 yards in an NFL-record seven consecutive playoff games in which the Broncos were 7-0.
