In -- updates given night a lot easier you know to go home or fly home partners unanimously to be the -- family for the weekend. Made a lot more and you know special. Force you talked about in the turnovers and this team's been very good. This defense has sort of this year. But they've been they haven't been the flu turnovers they've been beat here especially against the jets these were. So hard hitting turnovers. Is that something that can be contagious is the right were put. Something that you give our role with him and be able -- -- -- -- is knowing that your you've got a routine your defense's ability to someone that I think. After you've given his own. If Arizona is. You know make you negative plays and making you know big plays after one another word sacks or tackles for losses or turtles. Operate. You know you get in the frenzy.

You automatically get the feeling there a moment ago and has not been all interceptions or has not been all strips that you know is estimating guys actually. Lamb had more people in and call from a ball so that's you know going out being physical and taken the ball away and have to invest most impressive thing.
