There is a good chance that if you’ve found this page then you’re playing the Immaculate Grid.
That also means that today’s grid has asked for players that have played for both the Denver Broncos and Atlanta Falcons.
And, it also means that you’re probably stuck on this particular box and you’re looking for a little help. Sound about right so far?
Well, good news, you’re in the right place.
I’ve done some research and have found players who played on both the Broncos and Falcons.
Matt Prater is a placekicker who’s known for his strong leg and accuracy in clutch situations. He went undrafted in the 2006 NFL Draft but was later signed by the Detroit Lions, where he didn’t make the final roster.
Prater bounced around a bit early in his career but ultimately found a home with the Denver Broncos, where he spent the first half of his career. In 2013, he set the NFL record for the longest successful field goal, kicking a 64-yarder in a game against the Tennessee Titans.
In 2014, Prater was suspended for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy, and the Broncos released him. He was subsequently picked up by the Detroit Lions, where he solidified his reputation as one of the NFL’s best kickers.

Steve DeBerg was selected by the Dallas Cowboys in the 10th round of the 1977 NFL Draft, 275th overall. He played for several teams over a lengthy career that spanned 21 years, including stints with the San Francisco 49ers, Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Atlanta Falcons.
DeBerg’s NFL career totals include 34,241 passing yards and 196 touchdown passes. He completed 2,874 of his 5,024 passing attempts, leading to a 57.2% completion rate. He also threw 204 interceptions.
One of the highlights of DeBerg’s career was his ability to continue playing at a high level despite his age. He started games in three different decades, and he became (at the time) the oldest player to start at quarterback in an NFL game at the age of 44 years and 279 days.

Danny Kanell was selected by the New York Giants in the fourth round, 130th overall, in the 1996 NFL Draft. He had a six-year NFL career, mostly as a backup quarterback.
Kanell started for the Giants in his second season, helping the team to an NFC East title in 1997. His stint with the Giants lasted four seasons before he moved on to play for the Atlanta Falcons. He also briefly spent time with the Denver Broncos before his NFL career concluded.
In total, Kanell appeared in 43 regular-season games, starting 24 of them, and threw for 31 touchdowns and 34 interceptions. He passed for 5,129 yards with a completion percentage of 51.4%. After his NFL career, Kanell transitioned to a successful career in sports broadcasting.
