Cats in the NFL: Super Bowl Sunday

With a tear in my eye, we have reached the final football game of the 2020 football season. From the uncertainty of any football being played to a virtual draft, no fans, all the pauses, and all the weird circumstances, we have seen it through. On the college level and professional, we made it to the finish line for the whackiest football season of them all, and standing at that finish line is Mike Edwards and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers playing host to the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV.

It is clearly a MASSIVE deal Mike Edwards in playing in the big game, and he has been an integral role in getting the Bucs to the Super Bowl. It’s easy to forget about the Badger with a defense that is littered with talent like Tampa Bay’s, but as I’ve said 1,000 times this season: Mike Edwards has picked off Tom Brady, Drew Brees, and Aaron Rodgers this year. Not to mention he knocked down a ball in the NFC Championship at the goal line on that infamous Packers drive that helped secure a spot in the Super Bowl for the Bucs.

When Antoine Winfield Jr. was listed as out two weeks ago, Edwards stepped up, now he has a chance to become the first Kentucky product under Mark Stoops to win a Super Bowl.

Aside from Mike Edwards, the OBVIOUS storyline is the potential passing of the torch. The GOAT Tom Brady going up against the defending Super Bowl champion and undisputed future of the NFL, Patrick Mahomes. Just absolutely electric. Does Brady overcome Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, and Patrick Mahomes in three straight weeks further solidifying his status as the GOAT, or does Mahomes take the torch tonight to win back-to-back Super Bowls?

We’ll find out at 6:30 p.m. EST down in Tampa.

    How did he pick off Tom Brady this year? Was Edwards on a deferent team?

      It was earlier in the year at one of his first practices

      Fun fact: I googled the two teams full rosters down to the practice squad and Kentucky has as many players playing in the super bowl as Alabama, Ohio state, and Georgia combined. Guess it really is harder to win at the next level when you get used to your entire team being 5 steps ahead of the competition.

    I want a UK boy to win but I also want the game to be fair……I hate mutual exclusivity.
