It’s a tough task to come in just days off of a trade, let alone on a short week on Thursday night football against one of the better defenses and front sevens in the league, but new addition Kenyan Drake did just that - and then some.
The former Crimson tide RB started off hot, ripping off a 36 yard gain on his first carry and putting the Cards on the board early.

Drake found himself the focal point of the offense, going on to rush to the tune of 110 yards and a touch and nearly led the team in receiving yards before Isabella’s big 88 yard play. Drake also hauled in the 2 point conversion to bring the game within 3.
Whether or not you agree with the trade, it’s so far paid off exactly how the team would have wanted it to.
What do you think? Was Drake your player of the game? Would you like to have seen Budda Baker take the nod? None of the above?
