It’s another busy day for the former Kentucky Wildcats in the NFL. Let’s see what’s going on this sports-packed Sunday.
Randall Cobb & Tim Masthay – Green Bay Packers
The Packers hit the road against divisional rival Minnesota this afternoon at 1. The Pack are winners of six of their last seven games and look to continue that against the lowly Vikings. Minnesota also has former Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater leading their team so that hast to give Masthay and Cobb some extra incentive, right?
Avery Williamson & Wesley Woodyard – Tennessee Titans
It’s been a tough year for the Titans so far, but individually, former Wildcats Williamson and Woodyard have shined in Nashville. Tennessee travels to Philadelphia this week for a matchup with the Eagles, and with rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger yet to pick up his first win leading the Titans, it could be a long day for the boys in blue. Williamson was praised this week in an article written by the Associated Press after his two sacks against Ben Roethlisberger. Keep it up big guy.
Stevie Johnson – San Francisco 49ers
Johnson has proven himself as a steady receiver everywhere he plays as his first year in San Francisco has gone well. Johnson has 32 receptions on the year for 407 yards and three TDs. The 49ers will need him at home this afternoon in the 4:00 game against the Redskins of Washington.
Jacob Tamme & Danny Trevathan – Denver Broncos
Tamme has done well for himself in Denver under the spotlight of Peyton Manning. Tamme has 10 receptions on the year in the tight end position for two TDs. The Broncos play in Mile High Stadium this afternoon against the up and coming Miami Dolphins in an AFC showdown.
Corey Peters – Atlanta Falcons
Corey Peters is in his fifth season in the NFL and the Falcons somehow find themselves atop the AFC South despite having a losing record. He has 16 tackles on the year and one sack, but it’ll be a tough challenge for Atlanta as they host the much improved Browns this afternoon at 1.
