Former Kentucky Wildcats in the NFL: Super Bowl Recap

Well, it wasn’t the most entertaining Super Bowl in recent history. The Seahawks came out aggressive to begin the game, and they never looked back. Seattle dominated Denver 43-8 on their way to their first ever Super Bowl victory. As for the Broncos, it was a tough loss, having won the AFC behind a record-setting season for Peyton Manning. Three former Kentucky players hit the field last night, hoping to win their first ever title. The Broncos are talented enough to make another run for the Super Bowl in the near future, if Manning can stay healthy.

Danny Trevathan (LB): Trevathan had a great game for the Broncos, leading the way for the defense. He finished with 12 tackles, seven of which were solo tackles. He made plays for a Broncos defense that was lacking in playmaking last night.

Wesley Woodyard (LB): Woodyard also contributed for the Broncos defense last night, as he finished with three tackles.

Jacob Tamme (TE): The only Kentucky native in the game, Tamme finished with two receptions for nine yards.
