“The mud bowl,” tight end George Kittle said Thursday, smiling. “Me and (Ross) Dwelley just watched that whole game on tape. Crazy how different the team is — but a lot of the same players, a lot of the same mindset, too. It was really fun to watch that one. It’s crazy how much our offense has evolved since then.”

“That’s something that I have to grow in, in terms of you make some big plays and stuff, but every play has a life of its own.

That’s something that I had to learn the hard way.”
