Bill says he’s really happy with how Dwayne managed the game. They broke the huddle with time on the clock. Minimal playcalling errors.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) November 3, 2019
They emphasized the operational stuff with him this week and on that front he was good today.
No shots downfield:
Callahan says they wanted to be efficient and control the ball offensively. Between that and the conditions, there weren’t really chances to open it up for any shots.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) November 3, 2019
Callahan mentioned they wanted to control the line of scrimmage. Peterson's 108 yards was a positive, but added the conditions did not allow for the deep shots they wanted to take.— Ryan Fowler (@FowlerRyan1) November 3, 2019
