DE Yannick Ngakoue


Yannick, the defense didn't allow a touchdown to the Titans today. How do you take that as a positive into the next few weeks?

Yeah, definitely a positive. We stepped up against a great running team. But at the end of the day, there's no moral victories. We would like that win more so than not giving up a touchdown.

How frustrating of a loss is this after how you guys played today? For the defense?

It is real frustrating because at the end of the day, it takes all three phases, not just the defense. We all have to come together as one collectively. I feel like we've been putting that on the last two weeks. Unfortunately, we weren't able to get the win, but it's just part of football.

How do you assess the pass rush today?

I feel like we were getting back there and making (Ryan) Tannehill uncomfortable and things like that. At the end of the day, we still had to play the run. It was a fairly close game.

How impressed were you with Bobby Okereke?

Definitely really impressed. I'm always impressed with him, the way he practices – he practices hard. He's always taking notes, stuff like that. So I'm not even surprised.

What was your reaction when you got that fumble?

I was happy for him. A guy that, like I said, works hard each and every day. So it's great to see him make a play.

What kind of impact does he bring to this front?

He's helping us get aligned, being at that middle linebacker position. Also just his energy. Always trying to make a punch attack on the ball.
