"Noble was banged up early in the year, but he's back and good now. He's a good player. He has a chance to be a really, really good player.
"I think they're all getting better. I think Will Clarke in the last three weeks is really turning it on. He's turned a corner. I think Dontrill Hyman today - the play on the goal line was unbelievable."
Patterson seemed more impressed, though, with the attitude.
"We're just getting better," he said. "We didn't hang our heads. We just went back to work. We believed we can still be a great football team. Just like last week, we're not going to get overly excited. It's one win. We need more."
"We're improving as a whole team," said Rowell. "Just working every day. It's winning as a team."
"Coach asked us at the beginning of the week to identify one thing we could get better as a unit," Patterson said. "Setting up scores on that end of the field was definitely of emphasis."
"It's what is expected of us," Rowell said. "We expect to be good. Simple as that."
