Palmer: 'We had a specific gameplan and we stuck to it'
Yes he -- -- a great player on the first play of the game. Indeed need to give. Darius a better chance to make a plan that ball on and a -- completion but. Get a good jump on what play it was coming in and we. Try to kind of set the tone or leave or what I would do was going to be in and unfortunately he got the best of them -- Need to find a way to do it again after it's a little more -- a little more distance on the ball games and -- player yeah we're gonna come and attack them. You know they did a good job later on clouding his side and and double covering. With the safety and some is on some -- -- but -- -- gonna come in and and we had a specific game and we stuck to it and we're fortunate to come out of here with a win. There were. They made it known that there was stop the run there a player -- like defense and it's if you know really good front seven we thought we played really really well -- -- today. They get a lot of the pressure on quarterbacks. You know both guys in the outsider really good pass rushers and we did a really good job neutralizing both those guys in the just really warm down -- -- our our big guys and and later on the game he saw it and rip off some you know five plus yard plays here template -- isn't. We just did a good job wearing them down and and they wanted to to try to stop stop the run and go to the box him and we just did a good job for an alternate. No I mean this is a rivalry game and and we have a lot of respect for those guys and in that coaching staff. We wanted to score early but we -- score early every week and we news statistics but. When you talk about Chiefs and Raiders. You can't rely on on statistics you know you're gonna get a good shot from them and they were called off a bye week there was a number of things that. We have great respect for for that defense and and especially that defense coaching staff which -- know does a great job getting his guys ready and we just kept grinding kept working depression got forgotten and one in the battle for a big. Know it's frustrating you know it's it's a good defense in the red zone they've had some kind of weird touchdowns currently on the have. Knocked down the rankings in the red zone but. With a similar topic as the week it's it's a good defense or group and talented very talent lot of first round picks lot of top five picks and three top five picks over there. So it was you know we're gonna -- work cut out for us in the red zone and we need to keep getting better and we need to keep working on it. We had some opportunities to score the that we didn't capitalize on we didn't execute on. So we're gonna go back and continue to work him and find ways. Get about 65% terrorism accessible. I believe so. You know you get two wins -- -- you know in a row and and come in here and the difficult place to play you know regardless of their record -- difficult place to play it's tough crowd to play in front of its loud. Their fans really understand the game they know when to be loud. So we're gonna rent you know use this is a little bit of momentum like we did last week and we got Tampa Bay loses a team is kind of a similar situation that we are. They've had some a little bit -- playing on Thursday and and they've been able to get a couple wins here and it's going to be fight next week in and I'm excited we get to go back and play play in front of our fans that are -- yeah I mean that was. That was the plan. He got me the immunity to play. But you know in the and we -- go with phenomenal play from non life I was so I don't think my teachers in -- have you watched. You know they they did a great job from the passing game and that's it in those two guys -- -- defensive -- have been on 1011 games -- Streak and both those -- and get sex week in week out. Both were tackles did really really good job against them game plan wise and -- what a coach that did that -- new to those neutralize those guys I'm thankful for. Is that all the time in the world -- and a and we did a good job especially early in the game in the running game didn't get in there and over a hundred yards and -- winning. Winning somewhere along one blocks -- -- I think everywhere everybody knows that that he's the guy in our locker room he's he's young I don't know guys -- nova net. He's young it's it's year two he's had some injuries he's he's finally healthy. But he's he's a special player he's a great football player great teammate. Who block in the run game and pitch and catch the ball. You know just a special player. -- just you know it's a different game when you can when you you know if you look across league quarterbacks have -- throws. You're gonna make them and there's a lot of really good quarterbacks in this league and you know we just -- you know I can't say you know how good I can't say enough how good those tested for a Marcus no sacks I think I got knocked down maybe once -- and I was like a long ball for too long. But you got really good pass rushers -- that you have big stout. Fit guys up front to push the pocket and we just we we won the battle of trenches and that's where you in the game.
