The offense then embarked on its longest drive of the season – an 18-play, 11-minute march that ended in Crosby’s third field goal of the day, from 31 yards – to make it a two-score game at 23-14. From there, it was over.

“This is a big win for us, to bounce back from last week, pull off a division win like this – especially when the back runs for 200 yards, and we still find a way to win this game,” veteran defensive tackle Ryan Pickett said. “It says a lot about us.

“We’re still improving. We’re still trying to get better. I think we’re going to do that. I think we’re going to continue to get better through this last stretch of the season.”
