Thoughts Heading Into Bye Week

You 12’s are awesome! Sunday’s game looked like we were playing at home! Once again, you guys were able to bring the noise on the road and help us pull off a tight one. The Jets came ready to play, but we were able to execute our game plan and come out on top. Overall, I am happy with the way we got after it playing on the road. 

I knew coming into this game it'd be a dogfight with Brandon. He's going to end up in the Hall of Fame with a gold jacket because he's done it everywhere he's been. ... He's just a great player and he's going to make his plays. I knew that coming in. That's how the match ups go. We just kept going at it, stayed the course, and I was able to get my first interception of the season.

It's a great feeling heading into the bye week with a win! You never want to go into a bye with a loss and have to sit a week and think about it, so this win means everything to us. 

The week off will help us prepare for our biggest challenge yet. Atlanta has a lot of offensive weapons and are capable of breaking a big play on any given snap. Matt Ryan and Julio Jones are big home run threats. Those guys broke new ground yesterday, we need to prepare and make sure we communicate on coverage to keep them blanketed. 

I hope you 12’s are ready for our return to the Clink! We couldn’t be more pumped for the battle that’s ahead of us. We are bringing in a team that is eager to make a statement and walk out with a win. We need you 12’s to bring the noise and help us pull this one off!
