How good does this feel to close this thing out?

It means the world. You know, we put in a lot of work throughout the year and to see us get a win today, it really meant a lot.

What was the celebration like in the locker room?

Yeah, we were just turnt, like just happy to get a win and see that our work finally paid off. We understand that we did some good and bad things. But we're looking to continue to build off of what we did and continue to improve.

How key was it that you match their physicality defensively today?

That was, we knew that was what time it was when we showed up. We knew it was going to be a cold game and we knew it was going to be – the tougher team was going to win it. So from a defensive standpoint, I feel like the D-linemen and the linebackers did a good job from the running game and then the DBs did a good job at containing the receivers. So it was a great game and I enjoyed it.

How good does it feel to see rookie player make those plays in a win?

It means the world. You know, when I saw them make those plays, I was losing all my breath. Like, I was just so ecstatic. And it was fun to be out there with them. And it means a lot when you can make plays, help the team win. So, you know, like I said, we're going to try to keep building off of that and continue to improve.

What do you see there on the final play and when you got the pick?

Oh yeah, I just seen, I know Treylon Burks was on my side and I know that he was a deep threat, so I kind of figured that I had a chance. And then once the ball was in the air, you know, I knew I had to attack it. So, you know, that's kind of what went into that last play.

What do you think about how you guys handled Derrick Henry today?

That I think we did a good job for the most part containing him. You know, there were some missed tackles, especially on my part that I want to correct. But overall, you know, it was a good game. He's a good running back. You know, he does a lot of great things. But for the most part, we did a good – I mean, the D-line did a wonderful job, you know, linebackers did a great job as well.
