Colquitt Family Rivalry Revisited


It’s pretty clear what the major storyline will be Sunday night when the Kansas City Chiefs face off against the Denver Broncos:

Colquitt vs. Colquitt.

Okay, maybe not. But Britton, the younger Colquitt and Broncos punter, was having fun with the family showdown after practice on Wednesday.

“I’ve met with [Peyton], individually, a lot this week just to – the brother-to-brother thing coming up,” Colquitt said, according to the Broncos official site. I wanted to talk to him about how he handled dealing with Eli.”

The two brothers sharing the same field in the NFL is starting to become routine. With both players holding down their jobs without incident, this will be the seventh time they have faced each other, with Britton and the Broncos taking four of those games.

Through nine games, both Dustin and Britton are both having solid seasons. Dustin has had more work and put a higher percentage of punts inside the 20 (47.3% to 33.3%), though Britton’s net is a yard and a half more.

If the Chiefs defense can do to the Broncos offense what they’ve managed to do to the other teams they’ve faced this year, Britton should have a busier day than he’s been used to since Manning came to Denver.
