(on playing against a mobile quarterback like Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray)
He's an amazing player. He went out there and executed a gameplan and made a lot of plays. We just didn't make enough plays, and the score showed that. Hats off to them and their offense in operation.
(on prioritizing third-down and red zone defense but performing defensively the way the team did)
We just have to play better complementary football. Guys came out and hopped on us from the jump and never looked back, so we just have to watch film, get the corrections and look forward to next week.
(on what the Cardinals offense was doing particularly well)
Extending plays. Making plays. Making catches. Running the ball, especially when they did they just made plays, and we didn't make enough.
(on losing a home opener in front of a full stadium)
We had a really good crowd for an opening game. It's disappointing that we didn't get the win, but we have to look forward to next week. We can't change it. We learn from our mistakes and get back out there.
(on if the defense can learn from this loss)
Yes. Watch the film, look at the things we did good. Everything wasn't bad. They made a lot of plays, but we still did some good and see what we can do better from the good things. And the bad things, try to eliminate them so an outcome like this doesn't happen again.
(on the lack of complementary football today)
First game. This isn't what we thought we would display, but it happened. We just have to go back and watch film and see how we can do better for the second week.
