(on how he felt the defense handled the Ravens offense)

For the most part we were doing our job all day and then at the start of the third quarter we just didn't lock in and do what we had to do. We had some plays slip away and it put them in a good position to score and they took advantage of it. That was really the difference in the game.

(on the long touchdown run by Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson)

He's an elite quarterback. He can run. That was just him being an athlete and making a play. I thought we responded pretty well to that, but it was just the third quarter man. It was kind of the tipping point and not really doing what we should have done going into the fourth quarter. We have to be better than that.

(on how well the defense played today after being talked about nationally as a weakness)

We told the guys to not focus on what happened at the beginning of the year or even the first 16 games. It's a whole new season and we could be who we wanted to be. I felt like for the most part today, we went out there and did our jobs to the best of our abilities. I'm happy and proud of the guys for doing that.

(on where his emotions are after having a unique season like this one end in the first round of the playoffs)

I am kind of all over the place. For me personally, this was the last year of my contract. You never know what's going to happen in the future. Me, I'm thinking in a lot of emotions today knowing this was potentially the last time I could play in Nissan Stadium. It was a very emotional day. Right now, the emotions haven't really hit me of losing. I am just trying to take in every little thing I can and see what happens.
