RB Derrick Henry


Were they doing something particularly well on defense today? Looks like it was probably tough going as you might have had all year?

They executed and we didn't. They had a plan, came in and executed and we didn't do our job really.

It's a rare thing for you guys, but do you think they wound up being the more physical team?

I don't think so, because we just couldn't get anything started in the run game. And obviously they had a plan and executed and they played better than we did.

What do you feel like you guys need to do better moving forward to keep that from happening?

To me, you've got to go back to work, watch the film, learn from it. Go back to work, focus on improving, focus on getting better. We got another game coming up next Sunday. Learn from this one, just go back to work.

Do they do any more run blitzing maybe than teams normally do against you?

I mean, they blitzed some, they shot the gaps with backers. But at the end of the day, we've got things to block that and do what we need to do, but that's another thing we didn't do our job.

How much difference does it make with Ben (Jones) with his experience in there playing center?

Ben (Jones) is smart and knows the ins and outs of the offense and he's a big part of what we do. We went out today and there's no excuse. We've just got to execute better and be locked in, all 11 of us.

I know it's a long season. How much do the losses motivate you? How upset should this team be about this one?

Yeah, this one definitely hurts. But at the end of the day, you've just got to learn and grow from it. And like I said, come in tomorrow and watch the film and see what we need to correct, continue to get better, and then focus on improving to the next one.

You're on your way to the end zone and then the ball got punched out there. How long are you going to carry that, like, as you go back on that, what went wrong?

I can't harp on that. Treylon (Burks) went to the ball and we wound up scoring. Ball security, there are no excuses. I've got to carry the ball better, be more attentive where the defense is at. I got to carry it high and tight, which is what you are supposed to do as a running back, and go learn from it and be better next time.

Frustrating that this team which has been so good in the red zone struggled today? I think it was 0-for-3 inside the 20?

Yeah, definitely it was frustrating. Whenever you get down there you want to get points, and we just strung some plays together to get down there, just couldn't get in the end zone. We've got to get back to work and hopefully be batter.

Something about this team, this is the last three in a row, they have got you?

They are playing better than the last time we faced them. We'll see them again and I am sure we will play better the next time, but I know in the back of my mind, just go and move on from it.
