As to what changed their gameplan for the second-half, seeing the running game was having success led Lewis to go for a more run-heavy attack coming out of halftime:

“There were some positive plays we had in the first half. So we took a seat back and relooked at some things, and we did a nice job coming out (in the second half).”

 

Giovani Beranrd specifically was the spark that got the run game going:

“He did the things that we expect him to continue to do. He had the great catch-and-run. He had a big run earlier. And then Bennie (Green-Ellis) comes back and finishes it off. So it was a good job today by the two of them.”

 

Dalton was also pleased with how the rookie performed:

Giovani’s done a really good job. We drafted him to be a guy that’s versatile; a guy that we can move around and catch the ball out of the backfield and make big plays. That’s exactly what we’ve got out of him. It’s exciting to see him come out and play big in a game like this. He did a really good job.”

 

As was A.J. Green:

“A lot of weapons, man. That’s the biggest thing. Gio is so explosive. We put him at any spot on the field and get him the ball in space, and he makes things happen. Tyler is a great catcher and great blocker. He did a lot for us today.”
