“That was a great game plan. They just kept the ball away. But the way their defense played really affected how we played them. If we would have scored and got up on them, they would have to throw the ball more, but with us not scoring, they could just play safe like that. You can’t really change the game when they don’t have to throw the ball and just run and be safe and trust the defense.”
