It was a decent win...we dominated the 1st and 4th quarters, but the scoreline definitely flattered us.

Had we simply converted a higher percentage of short yardage plays, we could've blown the game wide open in the first half.

Here is Ben's quote:

I dont think he is saying he should have stuck with what Arians called, rather than he should have just checked down and taken the easier yards, rather than trying to force things and make the big play.

But, that is the whole Risk-Reward issue with Ben that most have been saying ....."let the kid gamble, because it pays off". He held the ball long at times, but this week there was no big pass rush to worry about.

He must've been so excited and anxious to make big plays knowing that this was going to be one of the few weeks where he could get time to throw.
