Here are five lessons we learned from Sunday’s 37-17 win over the New York Giants.
“Any game you go into, that’s our key focus. Get those turnovers. We hadn’t done that enough in the past but this week we did and we got the ‘W’. I was in the right place at the right time. The ball was still up in the air and I made sure I got control of it and then it was just trying to get as far as I could go.”
“To set a franchise record meant a lot. But at the same time, if I did it and we didn’t get a ‘W’ it wouldn’t have meant anything. So it was definitely more special to have it come in a win.”
"I think that is more for coaches to decide. I think our running back group as a whole tries to complement each other with all the different things we do and different roles we have. We are going to continue working and trying to get better at what we do."
“Having Melvin back and the energy he brings on the field definitely gave us a boost. We were happy to have him back.”
It wasn’t just Ingram though. The return of leader Jarret Johnson on the outside as well buoyed the team as the steady veteran is as popular as anyone in the locker room. Donald Butler said seeing “Double” back lifted the team’s spirits as well:
“Having him back was also huge. We’ve missed him for a couple weeks, and it felt good to get us all out there. It felt good. We were excited. We were running around making plays. When you do that, you can’t help but have a smile on your face.”
“We have to get the next one. We have a short week in Denver, playing an outstanding football team. We have to go back and look at how we played against them last time. It’s a great opponent. We’re going to get in there and put a great plan together on a short week and just keep going, one day at a time and one game at a time.” Read
