WR JuJu Smith-Schuster


Q: What did you see on QB Patrick Mahomes' TD scramble on third-and-nine?

SMITH-SCHUSTER: "I made eye contact with him, I thought he was going to throw it, but he just ran it in. A touchdown is a touchdown at the end of the day. I knew it was man (defense), and at that point I was just trying to get a block. I got a block for him, he made a guy miss, scored and then came back on the two-point conversion and kind of did the same thing on the left side. Making blocks, man."

Q: What did you see from Mahomes in the fourth quarter?

SMITH-SCHUSTER: "The trust, to be honest. There was one ball where he threaded the needle inside between two dudes. Just making plays all the way around. I would say, in the second half, using his footwork and putting points on the board."

Q: How much difficulty were the Titans giving you with their physicality and how were you able to adjust to that?

SMITH-SCHUSTER: "We came out trying to get the run game going. It started off slow. We hurt ourselves with penalties and stuff like that. We had the drives but missed field goals, couldn't get the points on the board. At the end of the day, our defense came up big. We came out in the second half and just made plays."

Q: You led all receivers in yards tonight, what was working for you?

SMITH-SCHUSTER: "I'm not going to lie to you, moments like this, I embrace it, I love it. I don't back down from anything. This is what separated the good and great, that's 100 percent – everybody knows that. I've been in this situation multiple times, so it's nothing new to me. Have to stay composed, have to stay level-headed. Just play ball at the end of the day, trust one another individually and you just go out there and play."
