McCarthy said, “I think the biggest challenge is gonna be receivers getting open. They do a tremendous job of disguising coverage and they’re ultimately fast, physical and they’re a veteran team. A lot of the guys are seniors, 6th years’ and they communicate very well. So just being able to not hurt ourselves, and play on the same page is gonna be huge for us on this one.”
