The Chiefs and the Broncos announced their finalists for the NFL's Super Bowl commercial. Several players from each team auditioned for the spot. The theme is players' best football memory.

For the Chiefs, the finalists are punter Dustin Colquitt and tight end Tony Gonzalez. Colquitt's commercial centers around growing up the son of a Pittsburgh Steeler. Gonzalez's spot revolves around an airplane ride home from a preseason game in Japan.

For the Broncos, rookie punter Brett Kern and running back Michael Pittman are the finalists. Kern recalls proposing to his new wife on a football field in front of family, friends, coaches and teammates. Pittman recalls winning the Super Bowl while with Tampa Bay.

Fans can vote on the finalists' stories on NFL.com from Dec. 4-17 in the first round. I will pass on any information I get on the Chargers' and Raiders' finalists.
