They are not letting a lot of outside stuff affect them. We are playing in all 3 phases, it’s not just the offense or just the defense. We blocked a punt, we had an interception for a touchdown, we are playing in all three phases, and I think that is good,” said Cleveland Football Coach Heath Ridenour.
