    <blockquote>By Casey Pearce

    <img align="left" alt="Antonio Gates" title="Antonio Gates" src="http://images.tsn.ca/images/stories/20041107/gates_71034.jpg" />When Giants tight end Jeremy Shockey came to San Diego last fall, tight end Antonio Gates caught six passes for 92 yards and a touchdown."  Playing against Atlanta's Algee Crumpler two years ago, Gates caught six passes for 80 yards."  In his last four games against Tony Gonzales and the Kansas City Chiefs, Gates has caught 21 balls for 289 yards and six touchdowns.

    The stats show that when the NFL's elite tight ends are on the opposing sideline, Gates generally wins bragging rights."  This weekend brings an opportunity for the two-time Pro Bowler to continue that trend when the Chargers travel to Baltimore to play Todd Heap and the Ravens.</blockquote>
