Game Notes: D Must Erase Big Plays

"You know it's coming, so you have to make sure you cover and play the ball, because Carson is going to put the ball up there and give his receivers an opportunity to make plays," safety Walter Thurmond said. "That's what they do, and they do it well. It comes down to coverage. You have to cover and you have to tackle well and you can't let their receivers get behind you."
