RB Jerome Ford


Kevin Stefanski said he saw the look in your guys' eyes and he knew that this would be a bounce back game. What was it about the mood of this team on Tuesday that got you prepared for what you guys did today.

"Everybody was disappointed about the loss about the Steelers in Pittsburgh and that we wanted it real bad. And with Nick (Chubb) going down, everybody felt the sense of urgency to play for him ."

How did you feel you did today filling the void left by Nick Chubb?

"We did okay."

You had your first career rushing touchdown and a passing touchdown. Arguably your best game as a pro so far. Can you reflect on your individual performance so far?

"I'm doing the best I can to help the team."

What does it say about Deshaun (Watson) after a shaky first quarter to wipe that away and really focus and you guys get the offense moving especially in the second half.

"Coach all week has been preaching resilience. It's one of the letters in our word 'START' and we showed our resilience."

What was it like to have Kareem (Hunt) back?
It was great, a lot of energy coming from Kareem."

Is there anything you have learned from him that you take forth in your game in your career so far?

"Kareem is a dog. He works hard."

Does it feel any different being this active early in the game?

"No, not really."

Two touchdowns in your first start, how did that feel?

"It felt pretty good. It felt really good to help the team."

Any different emotions going through your head today?

"Definitely. Without (RB) Nick (Chubb) being here and seeing him prepare and getting ready, talking to him, it felt really different."

You guys have talked about turning the page and trying to get on the same page on offense. Do you feel like you turned that page today?

"Yeah, I think so."

Was there a moment where you thought that this is how it should be?

"That touchdown that (Amari) Coop (Cooper) had at the end."

Did you have a pregame routine with Nick Chubb normally?

"No, Nick is actually really quiet before the game. Like he is usually. Usually it's me, Coach Stump, him talking. You see him standing right next to you and know that Nick is ready to go. So not having him here is hard. Nick is the guy."
