LB Nick Bolton

221106-final

Q: You had one hit in particular that seemed to be a hit that turned the emotions of the game, do you recall that play and did it feel like that to you? Did it give you guys some juice?

BOTLON: "Yeah it was kind of a pivotal third down. They were kind of on the fringe area of kicking a field goal and so it was kind of good to get another negative play (and) kind of talk them out of kicking a field goal right there, forcing a punt. Kind of give this offense a chance. So, the crowd was great. It was up and down all game (and) those guys stayed in (and) they stayed late, and they cheered us on, so I was proud of them (the crowd) for that. But again, it was just a play I saw on tap, kind of talked about throughout the week and coach did a great job of giving us keys and stuff throughout the week and I was able to make that play."

Q: You guys did a nice job of corralling Derrick Henry, what do you think led to that success?

BOLTON: "Yeah, we just kind of knocking the rust off (coming) off the bye week. We kind of start off a little sloppy tackling wise. (A) couple bad fits here and there and kind of led to explosive runs. We were able to settle down, kind of get back in the zone of playing Chiefs defense and stopping the run and we were able to have a way better second half."

Q: How do you stay mentally in the game when things aren't going your way and the grittiness of the defense is what will ultimately lead to the win, what is the mentality for you guys to stay locked in knowing you only had nine points on the board?

BOLTON: "Yeah, we kind of knew coming into the game we had to outplay their defense. They pride themselves on running the ball and playing great defense, keep everything in front so we knew we had to outplay their defense throughout the defense. First half we didn't do that, second half we were able to come out and execute and play better than their defense and that helped us win."
