I played and coached high school football. I love the game and consider myself a huge fan. Even so, I won’t let my 12-year-old son play tackle football today or when he gets older. I’ve decided the risk of head trauma is way too great.
When Denver's Peyton Manning takes the field today against the New England Patroits, it will be the 13th time he will have faced Tom Brady but his first time as a Bronco. Brady has won eight of the 12 matchups.
