The Squeeze: When Dale Earnhardt Jr. repped the Broncos

Posted Oct 13, 2017

NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt Jr. is a diehard Redskins fan ... usually. But fellow NASCAR driver Regan Smith had a story about a time he wore a Broncos jersey.

1. When Dale Jr. rocked a Broncos jersey

To celebrate NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s driving career before his retirement, fellow stock car racer Regan Smith told one of his favorite stories, which features the diehard Redskins fan donning a Broncos jersey for the 2015 AFC Championship.

2. Let 'em know, Prime!

Deion Sanders was asked on Twitter which NFL team has the best secondary, and you know he had to go with the "No-Fly Zone."

3. Freaky Friday

With Halloween coming up, the Broncos celebrated a rare October Friday the 13th with a spoof of recent horror film "It."

4. Von chicken

During the Broncos' bye, Von Miller spent some time in College Station, Texas, taking in a football game ... and taking orders at a chicken restaurant.

He explained the situation during his media session on Thursday:

I was just walking. I was walking down North Gate and it just got crazy. I was trying to walk fast and try to get somewhere quick before people anybody noticed I was there. I was walking fast. People started noticing me. When you walk by it’s like a little wave. And you can hear the people talking behind you. I was just trying to get somewhere where they couldn’t get to me. I got into Dixie Chicken. People started noticing me in Dixie Chicken, so I just went behind the bar. I figured if they’re going to let me hideout, I might as well just help out. So, I started helping out taking orders and answering the phone. I worked for like 30 minutes. They haven’t paid me for it yet (laughing). It was a 30 minutes well spent at the Dixie Chicken. It’s a popular chicken spot in College Station anyways. It was good to go by there and spend some time with them. Dixie Chicken with Von Miller the chicken guy, it’s perfect.
