LB T.J. Edwards

221204-final

On how the Eagles were able to limit Titans RB Derrick Henry to 30 rushing yards:

"I think it honestly came down to winning our one-on-one matchups today. I think obviously, they had a good idea of what we were going to do, and we had a good idea of what they were going to do. It was all about winning your one-on-ones, winning your area, defeating blocks. Honestly, I thought our d-line just ruined that game. I thought they were dominant, all across the board. They're stopping the run, and in the drop-back pass game they were getting to the quarterback as well, so I thought the front had a really good game.

On whether the defense came in today with a chip on their shoulder:

"Yeah. I think [the Titans] run the ball, and they run it against a lot of people, and I think we definitely came in with a little intent to stop that this week. We think we're pretty physical as well. Again, it was all about winning our one-on-ones and upfront, it was nasty in there. You could just feel the presence of our d-line getting after them and safeties filling in the box when they had to. It was a really good game."

On how he sees LB Christian Elliss and LB Nakobe Dean developing:

"It was awesome to see, one, [Eagles LB] Christian [Elliss] getting elevated for this game. He's just so hungry, he takes film study, practice, walkthrough so serious. He's in there early, meeting with coaches, making sure he's on the right page. I was just happy he got to get in there and make some plays, and obviously he seemed fine out on special teams. And [Eagles LB] Nakobe [Dean] has been so steady all year. Again, a guy who loves the game of football. Quick studies, so he understands what's going on. He's a football player, for sure. I think those two had a really, really good game and it was awesome to see, no doubt."
