Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff played one of his best games of the 2021 season against the Minnesota Vikings.

Michigan State head coach Mel Tucker explained the importance of his defense playing well, following the Spartans' 20-15 victory on the road against Iowa. 

"If you score on defense, you're going to win 90 percent of your games," Tucker said postgame. "And, the guys are just a tough, hard-nosed group of guys and they play it regardless of the situation, they don't blink and continue to play. And, that's what you have to do on defense, you have to have that mentality like just put the ball down and let's play, regardless of the circumstance. It could be a sudden chance situation, it could be a two-minute before the half, two minute end of game, whatever red-zone defense, let's go play ball, let's find a way to get a stop, get the ball back to our offense. And that's what you saw today."
