The ability to stop the run was better than I expected considering we were facing Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis. We started to whiff on some tackles after the break, but we saw both teams doing that which makes me think they were cold.
Also, on that fight, I thought Andre Branch was in the wrong for that hit that knocked Lewan out of the game with a concussion, but it is a fine line there. Reshad Jones was coming up the field in Lewans' direction. I think I'd have to see the play again to see whether Branch saw that Jones was down. Things happen quickly on every play in an NFL game and players rely on instinct on a lot of them.
