(On playing in a hostile environment) "We were coming into a hostile environment. Last week, we didn't play up to our standards which was on us. We took full responsibility for that game in front of our fans. Coming to the west coast, that's a hostile environment and the fans were relentless for this organization and city. I don't think anyone expected us to come here and get a W. I knew if we stuck together, trust in what we preach and what coach preaches, play the way we practice, it would eventually come together for us. I'm glad we were able to come out here and get a win."

(On if the players spoke about their first half performance at halftime) "We talked with the head coach. You can't sit here, talk and not go out there and do. That's what coach was talking about. We can talk all we want but until we go out there and do it, it's just talk. We just wanted to go out there and put it all together. Like I said, I'm happy to get a good win against a great team in a hostile environment."

(On at what point the game turned for them) "I felt like we were putting drives together, but we weren't finishing in the endzone. We kept getting three points and stalling. We knew that we could move the ball and needed to finish in the endzone. We made it a focal point to put drives together and score points. We got field goals but that wouldn't help against this team, so we eventually had to get in the endzone." 

(On how this game can be a turning point for the team and lead to more victories) "I think you just enjoy this one. It was a tough fought battle. After the 24-hour rule, you move right onto the next one. We got another tough opponent coming up, a divisional opponent. It was a tough hard-fought battle but we will come in after our day off and watch film, grow, and then get back to work again."
