NFL: Houston Texans at Los Angeles Chargers Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

Sundays during the fall are of course filled with the National Football League, so yesterday wasn’t any different than a regular NFL Sunday. However, ‘twas quite the experience to see so many former Kentucky Wildcats making their impact in multiple NFL games. Lonnie Johnson played a solid game for his Houston Texans, Mike Edwards continued to see an uptick in snaps with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Benny Snell saw a few carries with the Pittsburg Steelers. And, of course, Josh Allen was jumping off your TV screen during Thursday Night Football for the Jacksonville Jaguars. All four are products of current Kentucky head coach Mark Stoops, which is promising for not only this year’s team in Lexington but future NFL drafts and the professional league itself.

Tweet of the Day

Johnson’s breakout game against the Chargers looks like a sign of only more quality performances ahead.
