Let me start by saying how happy I am we got the win Sunday. There’s a lot of football still to come, but to get a win over a tough division foe—that was huge. We knew how big a win would be and we went out there and got it done.
The defense deserves a lot of credit for the win. When the defense can record 10 sacks as they did, we know our job is going to be a lot easier on offense.
On offense, it was just a real team effort. We had a lot of guys make plays. Tread and Aldrick had some big catches. When you have guys that get opportunities like Chad Beebe, you have to be super happy for him. He was ready and prepared at the moment the team needed him, and it paid off.
That’s what it’s all about. I think all around this league, guys get this kind of an opportunity and make the most of it. It’s a special moment for them. Hopefully, that gives him a lot of confidence going forward.
It was good to get Dalvin back on the field. That big run was big not only for us, but for his confidence moving forward. Getting him back makes our offense that much more explosive.
We need everybody at every position if we’re going to be as good as we want to be. That will be especially true next week when we face the Bears in another important division game.
