(on making stops on the last two drives)

I think that's what we focus on. We did these with a next-play mentality. Of course we want to get off the field on third down, but at the same time its pro level. Guys make plays but we want to eliminate big plays like that, especially on third-and-long. We got them in that type of situation, so we're just going to learn from it. Like I said, those last two drives were big for us. We got off the field, especially at the end with a turnover. That won the game.

(on tipping the pass on the ball outside linebacker Harold Landry intercepted)

We know that especially in that type of situation, that we're rushing like three or four, so you know somebody's going to get doubled. That play for sure I got doubled and I wasn't going to get too much penetration, and I knew the quarterback, he's short, so we got our hands up. Something that we preach is affect the quarterback's timing of his throws.

(on the offense's performance)

Props to our offense. Giving up 30 points, that's something for sure we'll have to talk about. We talked about it before, we have to have our offense's back and the offense has to have our back. Props to them coming out, starting fast. Of course, the defense, we want to start a little faster. We started off kind of fast, but we, I think, we got a little relaxed. That's just the game of football. We're going to come back and learn from it. Once we're up on guys we just want to keep our foot on their necks.
