(On how the defense looked better today and then struggled against the run late in the game…) "It’s really hard to say. You got a good running back, so if anybody’s out of position, he’s able to find the hole. That’s pretty much what it was. We were flying around, we’re trying to make plays, and every now and then, you may get on the wrong side of the block or whatever, and a good running back’s going to find the hole."

(On the defense being on the field much more than the offense during the game and how that affects the players…) "Sometimes it’s hard. On defense, you really just go out there, you don’t worry about time of possession. You just try to keep fighting. That’s all you can do. You try to make plays, you try to get off the field, and if you don’t, you keep fighting, you keep going. That’s what we’ve been doing, and that’s what we’re going to try to do. We got to work on getting off the field, getting the ball back to our offense. It’s just been rough for us, it’s got to turn over for us. We just got to keep going."

(On the fumble recovery in the last few minutes and how emotional it was to then lose the ball…) "Man, of course that’s a roller coaster. You tried hard, you go out there and get a turnover, and you get the ball back to the offense, and things don’t go exactly as planned. But that’s football. Plays are going to happen. Good plays are going to happen, bad plays are going to happen. So you move on."
