We know it will be that kind of game. It's our first division game. (It's) always good to get off to a good start in the division. We'll need a real good week of preparation because they do a lot of things and they're a hard team to get ready for.

"They have a lot of looks on defense and they give you a lot of looks and different personnel groupings and formations on offense, too," the coach added. "They'll be a challenge from a preparation standpoint. (They're) always good in the kicking game and that's always a strong suit for them there, so we know that will be a big challenge for us, too."
