"He's not maybe running down the field or for as long runs, but he's still able to buy time, get out of the pocket and create some plays outside of the pocket," Lions defensive coordinator Teryl Austin said. "I think that's the most important thing. It's not that he runs for 100 yards a game, but that he can get out of the pocket and still see down the field and still make plays. You still see that."
"There's always a challenge when you don't have two really good players out there," Lions defensive coordinator Teryl Austin said. "But, we go into everything trying to take away the best thing that the other team does. I don't know if it's a big thing in terms of a challenge of the game plan, I think it's a challenge in how we've been doing it. We have to do what we're doing better, and we have to just try to execute better."
