"It's the manner in which you arrive at that point. Sometimes, there are tight games where it is hard fought and it is just back and forth and all that, but give them a lot of credit. When you look at the things we talk about as being an emphasis for us to win a football game, first being the turnover-takeaway ratio, we lost that. We gave it away twice and only got it back once. I'm not sure what the penalty number was, but it sure felt like there were a lot of penalties against us. We are close to leading the league in penalties, and that is going to get you beat. You look at both of those things right there, and those are two critical statistics that every team looks at and says that we have to be on the plus side of a lot of these things if we are going to give ourselves a chance, and we are not right now. That fact makes these games really close, maybe even dipping in the favor of the other team, and we have to constantly overcome that. That's the reason for some of these tight games, and if you're lucky, you win some, and others you lose, and you know why."
"I have to go back and look at the film. We became a little bit more conservative, which is fine. We've answered for whatever a defense wants to throw at us. We feel like we have an answer to any defense that anyone wants to throw at us. We can move that ball methodically down the field. We wait for opportunities for big plays, and we will call our shots, checking down if it's not there to make sure we keep possessing the ball and moving the ball down the field. Obviously, we came out and scored on the first three drives, and it slowed down a bit after that. We kept moving it and then we had that one turnover, which was my fault, but sometimes you're 玩ing the field position game against a good defense. That team has a very good defense. That just happened to be the case in the second half."
"Forget the records. It's frustrating that we lost this game because of all of those things that I mentioned earlier; penalties, turnovers, and just not making the 玩s that we need to make. I know we can run the ball better. I know we can stop the run better. All of those things that mean winning in football we didn't do enough of today."
"Everybody wants to hit the quarterback, that's just part of the game. That's a very good pass rush team. If you turn on the film and watch them, they have a lot of guys that can get after the quarterback. I think we knew that coming into this game."
"No, there's not much you can do at halftime really. You just stick to your gameplan. Players make adjustments throughout the game. In the end, they deserved to win. They 玩ed better than we did down the stretch."
"No, not when you look at how we played. We didn't establish a run game. That's something we really wanted to do. That was very important for us. We had some costly turnovers as well. When you don't do those two things well, then it doesn't bode well for you. You have to do really well in all of the other areas to get the win. They 玩ed better than us and that's why they won."
"It's on us to adjust accordingly if you are going to have a crew that throws a lot of penalties. I think both team were affected by it at times. I don't think it affect the rhythm necessarily."
"Momentum in games sometimes can be a little bit out of your control. I think that we got off to a fast start. I think that's something we talked about all week. We were able to do that, which was good. We had momentum not go our way. Sometimes that happens. We felt real good coming into halftime. I would tell you the inability to establish that momentum coming out of half time hurt us the most."
"It was just a play where we were both going for the ball and trying to make a 玩 on the ball, and with two people there, stuff like that is obviously unfortunate, but it just happened. You're not really aware of other people around you, you're just going for the ball. This isn't a one guy calls the other one off type of situation. You just go for the ball."
"It is frustrating. You have teams like Carolina and 在lanta who are winning games. You don't want to be third or fourth in your division. It's getting close to 玩offs and it's the time to start winning."
"Everything felt good. The hold, snap, kick felt clean. I was just telling those guys I don't actually watch the ball once it's kicked. I catch it and put it in its spot and I don't see if anything goes in or not."
