How every former NFL badger performed in week 2

0


NFL Week 2 ended with a bang for Wisconsin Badger fans, as Quintez Cephus took to the national Monday Night Football stage and nearly capped his performance with a catch of the year.

This image below appears to capture one of the biggest receptions in NFL history when taken out of context. Unfortunately, Packers cornerback Kevin King’s helmet was in the perfect position to break the pass.
