Won't even doubt there will be a play or two that involves jenkins now that he will be playing. Against AZ you can keep it simple, then get more creative in the playoffs.
The defense however NEEDS to play better than it has been the last couple of games. Justin Smith is clearly the engine of this defense.
Yes. I do honestly think the defense was physically exhausted after the NE game. Long games with a ton of anxiety are exhausting in a different way plus NE ran 92 fricken plays. Also Aldon and the defense was able to get good pressure on Wilson but he did a fantastic job of the slipping away.
