Monday Night Football will feature its largest contingent of former Broncos thus far this season, as Shea McClellin and the Chicago Bears square off against Tyrone Crawford and Orlando Scandrick of the Dallas Cowboys. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. (MT) on ESPN.

The three former Broncos will be looking to help move their squads into a tie for first place in their respective divisions.

With a win, McClellin and the Bears would move into a tie atop the NFC North Standings, while Crawford, Scandrick and the Cowboys would move into a tie atop the NFC East with a victory.

Former members of the Boise State football team will have played on each of the first four Monday nights of the 2012 season following tonight’s game.



Rookie defensive tackle Billy Winn started his fourth-straight game for the Cleveland Browns, kicking off the week’s slate of games on the NFL Network’s Thursday Night Football. Winn had a career-high five tackles – including two for-loss – and a quarterback hurry against the Ravens

Winn was one of three former Bronco defensive players to pick up at least five tackles. Kyle Wilson, who started at cornerback for the New York Jets, and Quintin Mikell, who started at safety for the St. Louis Rams, also had five tackles each.

Wilson has started three of four games for the Jets this season, and Mikell has started each of the Rams’ first four contests.

Mikell squared off against fellow former Bronco safety Jeron Johnson (Seattle Seahawks), while former Bronco tight ends/fullbacks Tommy Gallarda and Richie Brockel squared off against each other in the Atlanta Falcons-Carolina Panthers game.

In all, 10 of this week’s 15 games featured former members of the Boise State football team. More than 70 of the National Football League games through week four have featured a former Bronco (43-of-60; .717).
