Q: Opening Statement

A: It’s a disappointing game to lose. I thought, and I just told our team this, that we did a number of things really well with the plan coming in. I thought defensively to come away with the three takeaways, I thought there were a lot of good things. In a hard fought game like that, when it’s that close, when you have a blocked field goal that results in a touchdown, it’s a ten-point swing. That’s tough to overcome something like that when you’re playing a game that ended up being maybe a little bit different than many expected and yet it was the kind of game that we felt like we needed to play. Credit New York for making enough plays in the end and getting a win.

Q: Did the tempo of this game surprise you at all? [defense stepping up]

A: I think both teams defensively played much better than a year ago. Our third down numbers weren’t real good offensively. In the time of possession, there was a little bit of concern for me early because of the heat. I felt like our defense in that first half was getting quite a few snaps, but, yeah, it was an entirely different game.
