Here is your weekly report on how the former Louisville Cardinals did in the NFL over the weekend. The Cards currently have 11 former players on active NFL rosters. The big game of the weekend for Cards fans was of course Broncos vs Ravens. And to go along with a less than stellar sports weekend, Teddy got hurt and Lamar was hit late with no calls. But alas…
