On if there was any change to the game plan in the fourth quarter that resulted in more pressure on the quarterback: “No, it was basically the same thing we’ve been doing all year. We knew we were eventually going to get there. We just had to keep doing what we do. We had to keep following our techniques, keep fighting and be relentless to get there. But eventually, we were going to break through.”

On if the crowd was a factor at the end of the game: “Yeah, the crowd is always a major factor into how we play because when the crowd gets into it, it gets us going and it gets us moving. They actually disrupt the offense and the crowd was a big part of it.”

On the team’s ability to not look ahead to London: “Our main thing was to get this one because a lot of teams would’ve been thinking about London because it’s next week. We never focused on that. We focused on this game and winning this game so we could still be ahead in our division.”
