You look at the Baltimore Ravens team you're playing this week though there was one big player remember two years ago 85 yards for rice. On the whole their team that methodically just control the ball and moved on the field. For you guys than this week how different is that challenge in that you've got to make some stops this absolutely. Defense we've we've just where to we notice -- this is a physical group first of -- and wanna play physical. And only achieve things. If they if they can sit back and run ball fifty times they've targeted to what if you can't start so. They're not hurt and interpreted to mean I mean they don't want a deeper. And archery team in the environment -- really good football. Have a great spurs and great defense. And aggressive offensively in -- have -- that there and have an office arm where.

It's old years is looking in different games you plan on. We noticed and they have been on a flight to the death of Arnold cure what the score you don't care what can happen to a course of long was -- his minutes on the clock there won't fight. Do you do if you're noting the -- fight they would not do what they unit for the moment also. You have to be willing to go to law would have even if this -- -- Because they're going to be re so.
