They fought as hard as we did.”(On the 4th down conversion) “I was actually going to run, but I looked and saw that Carlton was open.”“We were never worried.”“We just have to fix our mistakes and come back better.”(On receiver drops) “We just kept feeding people the ball and knew they would make plays.
