The defense - outside of a couple breakdowns and the late desperation pass where almost everything was done properly - played very well. It’s still a concern, because the breakdowns will eventually cost this team, but we’ll take it for now. Montee Ball ran his tail off. He had to in order to gain the kind of yards he did.
Rex Sheild, Daily Cardinal - The defense was pretty stout, especially in the second half. Despite the wheel route that Mike Taylor was burned on early in the first half, they held their ground and allowed QB Chuckie Keeton and company to convert a mere 6 of 19 third-down attempts, an area that they really struggled with a year ago.
