We don't think about that. We take it one game at a time. Every week we have a one-game season. This week we are 0-0 going against New England.

We knew we had to come out firing. That set up the run.

I think they can count on me. And I want them to be able to count on me.

Y'all want to come in now? All the non-believers. You want to come in now?

We're going to go out and pound the ball. Whatever coach has in store.

I think the guys have kind of accepted that with me and I think I try to go on the field and play that way. I'm not a guy who's going to be yelling or ranting and raving and trying to talk to be a leader. I'd rather lead by example. It's made me feel more comfortable out there on the field.

No one thought we could win this game except for the guys in that locker room. We knew if we wanted a chance to win, we had to come out firing on all cylinders.

I just found that out, I didn't know he said that. But that's good when the coach says something like that. I've done everything I can. I really tried to step my game up to be the best that I can be for this team. I want them to know they can count on me when it's crunch time.

We're the underdogs going into their place. Now we get to see what we can do.
