Still, the Knights said the goal is to see what they can accomplish on the ground against the Warriors.
“The time management is a really big part of the game. It sets up the whole offense too,” linebacker and fullback Chaz Shaw said. “It really helps out when that is going. It helps both sides out because the defense gets off the field more. It’s good for everyone.”
Defensively, Ryan said the Knights are going to focus on Nyrel Sullivan, who has carried the ball 169 times for 1,507 yards and 29 touchdowns.
“I don’t know if there’s any stopping Sullivan,” Ryan said. “We’re hoping we can limit him and prevent big plays. They’re going to have to earn their yards, that’s the goal. Hopefully he won’t be the guy who beats us.”
