S Justin Reid

221106-final

Q: In overtime you still have to come out defensively without giving up the touchdown. Is that something you relish as a defense?

REID: "Absolutely. Absolutely. We had the confidence in ourselves, defensively. We know our offense is full of superstars and they're going to put up points but in the chance that they need us to come out and make a stop, we have confidence in ourselves to come out and do that too."

Q: Your quarterback (Patrick Mahomes) used his feet and did whatever he could to get it done. Does that personify a little bit of this entire team?

REID: "Exactly, just gritty – find a way. It's not always going to be pretty but all W's count the same so you find a way to take care of business."

Q: What worked for you in the second half that made the adjustment from that first half?

REID: "Yeah, a very physical game. We talked about the defense that we wanted to be when we first went into training camp and in the first half were not that defense. So we came together at halftime, really dug our heels in (and) talked about coming together as a unit. Nobody needed to go out and play any hero ball, we just need to come out and take care of our one-eleventh, trust your teammates to take care of their job next to you and you do your job in front of you and good things are going to happen. We come out in the second half and played a dominate version of defense, allowing us to stay in the game. Offense made the plays the needed to make, special teams really shifted the momentum to really bring juice to the whole team to bring it into overtime and give us a chance to win the game."
