WR Odell Beckham Jr.
Postgame vs. Washington, September 25, 2015
Q: Can you talk about what itís like to get that first win after the first two weeks?
A: Itís just great to be able to finally put a win underneath our belt. This team fought hard for the past three games and weíve came up short in two of them. Itís just great to finally be able to come out on top.
Q: How about Rueben [Randle]? He really stepped up today, too.
A: I wouldnít really call it stepping up, so to say. Heís capable of doing that every single time. Weíve all got to pitch in to be able to do that. It was great to be able to see him get in the end zone tonight and be able to see him out there. Weíre all having fun. Itís definitely a way better feeling, winning than losing, Iíll tell you that.
Q: You have 19 catches for 222 yards and four touchdowns in two games against the Redskins. You like seeing this team?
A: I donít know what it is, itís just something about it. Itís a division rivalry and at the end of the day, weíre all going to put our best foot forward every game. It just happens sometimes against Washington, I guess. I donít know. They did a great job tonight limiting some of the things that we were trying to do and we just kept clawing and scratching and found a way to win.
Q: Do you feel relief in this room?
A: I never really felt any other way than how I felt now. It was just two tough losses. At the end of the day we wanted to win them, but like I said, thereís 16 games in the season. 1-2 right now and youíve just got to keep pushing forward.
Q: How much does that big play by the special teams and then by the defense help propel your offense when you get onto the field?
A: I mean itís everything. Being able to go down there on special teams and make a play and come back on defense. You have the defense flying around, hitting people and picking the ball off and just out there lights out and playing fast. It makes all the difference in the world. Itís extra motivation as an offensive player and Iím sure itís the same as when the offense is out there clicking and weíre making plays. It gets your team fired up. I think tonight was a way of putting all the pieces together, even the pieces that we left out in the first and second gameÖlimiting the mistakes the best that we can and controlling what we can control.
