Dallas defeated Carolina, 19-14, when matched against Newton. Garrett believes there is value in carrying over the team’s game plan from that contest to Thursday’s matchup against the Redskins.
“There are a lot of similarities. When you defend this kind of an offense, I think the principles of defending them are the same,” Garrett said during today’s news conference. “So you can carry those things over. But the formations are different and how they get to the different concepts are different. So you have to be on top of that. And identification of that stuff is critical.”
