Sigh. Najee is a big, tough RB. That first down was all guts.

Nice job to pick that up. Najee burrowing in there.

I'm stunned by all the 4th down tries in the league this year. Lots of teams doing it in crazy situations. I don't get it. Maybe it's a product of rule changes favoring the offense so heavily, but I've seen a lot of points left on the field.

Cleveland in particular has cost themselves with failed 4th downs in critical situations.

I prefer to play the percentages. But I'm obviously glad we picked that up.

Decent run by Snell.

I still don't get WRs in motion ending up behind a guard or tackle at the snap every play. WTF is that?

Freiermuth!!! Man, we have some HIGH producing rookies so far this season. He's been doing great.

Excellent patience by Ben, great protection for Ben.

It's a streaky, follow-the-leader league.   It's fashionable to "go for it" this year, as opposed to being a dumb-assed pariah for trying it

It's one of those things where I almost wonder if there pressure from the league to do it, believing it creates more excitement.
