final

(on getting the first road win of the season)

It felt great coming off the losing streak that we had and go out there and play a game for four quarters, and finish it with a win is huge for this team. Just all around good ball, offense, defense, special teams, big plays out there as well. It feels good for sure.

(on gaining short yards)

The offensive line did a tremendous job in those situations and with the weather, field conditions, that's what it had to be. They are very physical up front, making the job easier for me, David (Johnson) and Philip (Lindsay) to get those yards when we needed it in short-yard situations.

(on what it means when the team doesn't have turnovers)

That's huge. When we don't turn the ball over good things tend to happen, so that is what we try to do. You try to keep two hands on the ball as much as possible and be smart in certain situations. When you do that you always put yourself in a position to win.

(on Texans quarterback Tyrod Taylor jumping into the end zone)

It was an amazing play. Tremendous play. To see your quarterback do that especially, you're kind of like, just come down in one piece. He is a tremendous player. The fighter he is to sacrifice for his team, giving up his body was pretty cool. 

(on the offense appreciating the defense getting five turnovers)

It is huge. They played their tails off and made big time interceptions in big moments. I think it was Dez (Desmond King II) there at the end with the interception at the one-yard line that ended up getting it. It just helps us out, getting the ball back, putting us in position to succeed. Kamu (Grugier-Hill) had the long interception return there so that gives us a shorter field position and an opportunity to go score.

(on how the Titans were limiting the offense in the second half)

They had some momentum up front and did a good job making some adjustments, but we just kept trying to grind it out. The offensive line did a tremendous job really grinding, being physical where we needed it to be, just make sure we keep going forward and also playing smart with the football.
