On the Lions’ final offensive drive: “I think the whole game we just tried to stay positive and just keep playing, and we did that. Golden (Tate) made a great play and Corey (Fuller) just had one at the end there. So, it was good. Everybody stayed in the game and we got it done.”

On if there was a point in the game where he felt it was over: “It was getting there, but like I said, we just hung in there. We just kept playing no matter what. I think that’s going to be the story. At the beginning of the year, we just hung in there though all the bad stuff that happened and we overcame some stuff. Come next week and the games to come, I think we’ll be playing some of our best football.”

On how much the win means to the team: “It was huge. We have a lot of play makers and you look around the offensive huddle and you know we have guys that are capable of doing it. We knew we had a challenge and we just kept playing.”
