Longtime Cowboys defensive tackle Jay Ratliff said called his Chicago Bears debut against the Minnesota Vikings last week, in which he recorded a single tackle, “a good start.” As for this week’s match-up with his old Dallas teammates though, he didn’t say all that much.
“It's just another game. It's just football,” Ratliff said, per ESPN Dallas. “I don't get caught up in all that silly rivalry stuff or some payback. The thing is we're here to win, and we're going to give every effort to do that.”
According to ESPN, Ratliff played 23 snaps in the loss to the Vikings, but he didn’t do much to slow down running back Adrian Peterson, who went for 211 yards.
“I thought he played well,” Trestman said of Ratliff. “We had him at 20-something snaps. We stayed true to that. I heard him come off a couple of times and say, 'Let me stay in my rhythm.' He felt he was mixing it up in there. So we felt pretty good that he'll be able to play much longer this week.”
