"I thought all those guys up front, they did a good job," Lions head coach Dan Campbell said, when asked about Hutchinson's performance. "They were much better than last week, because they were much more disciplined and they stayed true to what we were trying to do with the stunts. (Todd) Wash did a hell of a job with them. But, they were thorough and detailed with it. And, when you do that, that helps a guy like Hutch. It helps a guy Charles (Harris). It helps a guys like (Alim McNeill) Lim. It helps a guy like (Julian Okwara) J.O. So, it helps everybody upfront. And, we were disciplined with that, and it showed up.”
