(on if his 76-yard touchdown run helped get the offense going)

They just did a great job blocking and I just saw the hole and hit it.

(on the records he is on pace for and where his speed comes from)

It's still too soon. I am from Florida so it is in the water, so if you're from Florida, you've got to have speed.

(on where this game would rank so far in his career)

This today was incredible. The whole atmosphere felt like a playoff game. The crowd was in it. They came out and packed the stadium out. Just so glad to be able to back feel the atmosphere and have that connection with the fans again. It's something that we will all remember, especially on a big stage like this. It's great to have the fans out and play in an atmosphere like this.

(on what is allowing him to be performing at the pace he is at this point of the season)

I just come out here and try to be the best player I can, the best teammate I can, and come out here and take advantage of opportunities and make plays for this team. Do whatever I can do to give us a chance to win, I'm willing to do. Love this team, love this organization, love my teammates.

(on if he feels he has the team riding on his back)

They just did a good job on defense and disrupting plays and we just have to be better on offense. I mean, that's what it comes down to, we've got to be better. I don't think we made any excuses. You see it out on the field, we have to be a better offense and do the things we need to do.

(on what was said on the sideline after the number of injuries)

Let's go, it's time to go. You know, next man up. Guys came in a did a good job.

(on coming out with a victory over a highly-regarded team)

I don't think we get too caught into that because that is rat poison. We take it week by week, enjoy this W, watch this film and see how we can improve going into the next game.

(on if a win like this can be a springboard into a tough stretch)

Like I say, we don't want to get too caught up into the stretch that we have. It's one week at a time and today was a tough win, four quarters against a tough team solid in all three phases. As long as we stuck together, you know, stuck with it, we eventually give ourselves a chance which we did and the defense did a great job on getting that stop.
