* Denzel Johnson had a career-high 3 1/2 tackles for loss.

* Mat Boesen had the first forced fumble of his career with Chris Bradley making the recovery, setting up a 3-yard Kyle Hicks scoring run on the next snap. It was Bradley’s first fumble recovery of the season and third of his career.

* Boesen and Bradley later combined on a sack.

* Kyle Hicks ran for 104 yards on 18 carries to surpass the 100-yard mark for the second time in his career.
