Veteran safety Nate Allen said it's also up to the team's defense to help pick up the slack - a theme echoed by several of his teammates all week.
"The physical part, just recovering and getting guys to do everything they can to get back to neutral and feel good," safety Nate Allen said when asked about the challenges of a short week. "Even the mental part is big. Something you'd have four or five days to study a team, you have two days. Everybody has to go over the top with everything preparing mentally and physically."
