Mike Edwards, former Kentucky DB, delivers game-changing play for Tampa Bay
Tampa Bay picked up a big win at New Orleans on Sunday, 20-10.
Tom Brady is, of course, the Buccaneers’ star, but it wasn’t Brady who delivered the play of the game for his team.
Instead it was safety Mike Edwards.
The former Kentucky standout picked off Saints quarterback Jameis Winston and went 68 yards for a touchdown that put Tampa Bay ahead 20-3 late in the 4th quarter.

Edwards also had 3 tackles on the day as the Bucs moved to 2-0 on the season.
The 5-10, 205-pounder was selected in the 3rd round of the 2019 NFL Draft by Tampa Bay.
Saturday’s crucial interception was the 6th of his NFL career.
Edwards had a stellar 4-year career in Lexington. He recorded 317 career tackles, 21 tackles for loss, and 10 interceptions as a Wildcat.
