As you fight off your turkey coma to watch the Rob Gronkowski-less Patriots tonight, here's some food for thought regarding Buffalo Bills starters who play on special teams.
Gronk, of course, was hurt Sunday against the Colts when he broke his arm blocking on an extra point. The situation was made worse by the fact the extra point was New England's 59th of the game, long after the game had been decided.
Bills coach Chan Gailey was asked Monday during his weekly segment with WGR 550 whether he would take a starter off special teams if the game was decided.
"No. You can't do that," he said. "You don't have two extra point teams. You don't think about that, honestly."
Here's a look at Bills starters who played special teams in Buffalo's 19-14 win over Miami in Week 11.
Right guard Kraig Urbik -- 5 snaps (17 percent)
Right tackle Chris Hairston -- 5 snaps (17 percent)
Left tackle Cordy Glenn -- 5 snaps (17 percent)
Tight end Scott Chandler -- 5 snaps (17 percent)
Cornerback Leodis McKelvin -- 12 snaps (41 percent)
Safety Jairus Byrd -- 9 snaps (31 percent)
Cornerback Stephon Gilmore -- 6 snaps (21 percent)
Defensive tackle Marcell Dareus -- 3 snaps (10 percent)
Strong safety George Wilson -- 8 snaps (28 percent)
Linebacker Nigel Bradham -- 13 snaps (45 percent)
Linebacker Kelvin Sheppard -- 8 snaps (28 percent)
