NFL REWIND — It was a rough Sunday for former Kentucky Wildcats in the NFL with several of their teams losing in the final minutes during Week 3.

Case in Point: Tennessee

Fellow Titan and former Wildcat linebacker Wesley Woodyard could only manage 1 tackle for the game as the Titans’ defense surrendered 21 points in the final quarter to seal the disappointing defeat.
