"I told the team in the locker room (it was) really a brotherhood win because we really included all three phases, and that's what we're searching. That's what we're hoping. That's what we needed to do. The energy tonight was great, and that includes our fans to have them here, and we felt that. We've been on the road for a while, so it was 100 percent great to be back (home). We've worked hard at third down and red zone. We've still got work to do, but I was pleased to see some of that work come through today, especially offensively. But the story of today was defensive (end) Adrian Clayborn and the performance he had. ... (He had) a huge night. Just think a year ago he was in a dark place, had an injury, and the future was in doubt. For him to recognize that type of hard work gets rewarded, I was very, very happy for him. Then lastly, we'd like to recognize the TAPS families that were here this weekend for the game. Such a humbling weekend for us, and to have them as a part of our family this weekend at the game was just great. I'm glad to open up to your questions regarding the game."
On his thought process going into the game:
"I thought we'd play well. I said that before the game just because of the week we put in. I've been pleased with our preparation. We needed to now take the next step and make sure that carried over into the game and make sure our identity, the way we want to run it, the play action offensively led to our speed and ability to create some takeaways defensively. Let's make sure that came out loud and clear. We talked about that as a group at the very beginning of the week, and we recognized we hadn't played our best. We knew we had work to do, and if we thought we could make some improvements in some areas, the results would take care of themselves. We've got plenty of work to do, but just to be back home and get a win here this weekend was great for this team. I felt that connection in all three phases. When one side of the ball needs the help to pick it up, the next group was there ready to go. I think on the second series there was a turnover, and those are the ones that you don't want to go down and have that, but I think the first series might have even been backed up. I loved the way they battled. I love the attitude and the energy I felt on the sideline, and looking forward to seeing more of that."
