Q.Derrick, wondering on a day like today, when they're so clearly determined to stop you, what it feels like to watch Ryan Tannehill just go out and fire four touchdown passes.

DERRICK HENRY: He's on fire. He did a great job in the red zone. That's just what he does. When he needs to deliver, that's what he does. The guys did a great job catching the ball and scoring touchdowns, and getting upfield and making plays, key plays.

Q.Derrick, what does it mean for this team to be 2-0 for the first time in 12 years? I know there's probably a lot to clean up and work on. A lot easier to do that when you're 2-0 instead of 1-1 or 0-2?

DERRICK HENRY: Definitely. Definitely off to a great start. I don't want to get too caught up in it. I enjoyed this win today, make the corrections when we get back in the building, and keep improving as a team.

Q.Derrick, how much do you enjoy watching teammates around you make plays when other teams are focused on you? You had Jonnu make a couple big plays, Humphries with the catch, and how happy are you especially for Jonnu?

DERRICK HENRY: I'm just happy for those guys. See them working in camp, all those things are paying off. Those guys have been doing that all in camp, and it translates to the game. Those guys are playmakers, and they'll be making big plays, and hope it continues. I know it will continue by the way they work.

Q.Derrick, congrats. Talked to Jonnu about this just previously. Wonder if there was any difference in the way between last week's game-winning drive that set up the kick and this week's game-winning drive. Any difference in the emotions or just kind of status quo?

DERRICK HENRY: No, man. You know what we've got to do. We've got to win a game. Different emotions. Just focus on what we have to do.

Q.Derrick, you know you're going to have fans back in the building in October. Are you almost just glad to get this one over with?

DERRICK HENRY: Football is better when you start to play football. Like I always said, we've got a job to do and that's come out here and play good football and win games. That would be a big old plus. I know we're all excited to have the fans back, and we can't wait for that moment. So whenever they get back in there, it will be even better. But we definitely want to come in here and play good football and win games. That's what we do this for.

Q.Derrick, just curious, when Stephen Gostkowski's getting ready for the big kick there, what's kind of the reaction of you and guys on the sideline? Do you watch? Do you not watch? Do you say anything to teammates? How do you feel at that point?

DERRICK HENRY: Feel like he's going to make it and put us up to win the game. That's how we all felt. Nothing other than that.

Q.Derrick, congrats on the win. Just curious, this franchise hasn't been 2-0 since 2008. Given how you guys -- how far you guys went last year and the high expectations for this year, just how does it feel to get off to a 2-0 start?

DERRICK HENRY: It's great. I just want to keep this momentum going, playing good football, improving each and every week, making each other better throughout the week, and going out here and executing and keep winning games. Definitely good to be 2-0. Like I said, we'll enjoy this and then get ready to make corrections and improve for next week.

Q.Derrick, I know for the most part the stands were empty today, but you guys did have seven fans in attendance. I'm wondering if at any point you noticed any of those seven?

DERRICK HENRY: I was so zeroed in. I think I heard some noise from some fans, but we were just focused on the game. Happy they were able to come out and see the game.
