Practice Like You Play
That’s a phrase I hear every now and again. It’s a phrase I totally agree with. I want to give my everything in practice so that game day will go as well as I can imagine. The great news for us was that our practice paid off on Sunday against Cleveland. All of our guys were on point: from O-line to the RBs to our DBs and everywhere in between. Guys made big plays on a consistent basis. Our hard work at practice was showing up big time on the field.
Its games like Sunday that are really fun to be a part of. I was glad to play a role in the win with 80 yards rushing and a TD, but it was just as fun watching my boys do work too! Jeremy was an absolute beast yesterday. Some people in the media call him our “big back” and so they think he doesn’t have any speed. To watch our “big back” take it 74 yards to the house was a lot of fun. He’s got some speed and know you know. Andy and AJ seemed like they couldn’t go wrong on Sunday. That was a monster game through the air for those guys. AJ caught everything - two hands, one hand, jump balls - and made it look way easier than it actually is.
It was great to win big and have success on offense, but we are not done yet. This is not us having arrived, we are just getting started. Getting Tyler back last week helped a ton as well. To add a weapon like a Pro Bowl tight end like him will only give us an added boost moving forward.
Get ready Bengal fans!! We got some awesome weeks in store for you!!
