Your players of the game for Utah, without a doubt are Kenneth Scott on the offensive side with his strongest game of the season BY FAR. Scott was open all game long and had 72 yards receiving along with the game winning touchdown. It was also great seeing Kaelin Clay get a big TD on the first play of overtime which really set the tone for what Utah would try to do to win it in the end. The play calling was very deliberate and decisive in the OT sessions especially with the final and wide open slant to Scott for the game winner.
