I think you misinterpreted what I said....the running game was better (not by a ton though, greene had some good runs, but still 70ish yards isnt great).
What I meant was that all the people saying "we havent given sanchez enough around him to succeed", those players didnt change today. They were better when we didnt turn it over after getting into the redzone. The defense didnt fall apart in the 4th quarter because they actually were able to rest and werent facing a short field all day.
Good QB play makes the team around them better....thats what we need
