Mathews tied his career high with 29 carries, matching the total he posted just four days earlier, and ran for 127 yards and a touchdown in the victory. In the process, he is now tied for the most 100-yard games by a running back this season with five and topped 1,000 yards for the second time in his career.
“I was just trying to run hard,” he said after the game. “Trying to get yards after the first hit and be able to make positive plays. Our main thing is make positive plays.”
