The only other score was a 32-yard field goal by Justin Durham on the next-to-last drive, with the offense just putting 10 points on the board.
The defense forced two fumbles, recovering both, while holding the offense to 3-of-14 on third-down conversions. Linebackers Derrick Frasier and E.J. Brown led the defense with five tackles each. Frasier had four solo shots, including 3.0 sacks for 17 yards of loss. Overall the defense had five sacks and 13 tackles-for-loss in the scrimmage.
