It's insane the amount of men in the Matthews family have played in the NFL. Grandfather, father, uncle (hall of famer), and brother all play or played in the NFL (fun fact, his cousin Jake was the starting right tackle for Texas A&M as a freshman and has a future in the NFL). With a pedigree such as that, how can you ignore a chance to see how the younger brother of the NFL Defensive Player of the Year?
Well, you can't, and everyone will be on hand to see another dominating performance from the Oregon Duck. Matthews played out of his mind in the BCS National Championship game, putting his team in position to tie the game with a key forced fumble late in the contest.
Nobody expect Oregon's defense to hang with Auburn's offense, but they did just that and it was due to the play of Matthews.
