Q: How big of a challenge is it facing Matthew Stafford? He is having an MVP caliber season.
A: It is going to be a great challenge. We are looking forward to it and you just want to continue to get better every week.
Q: What have you seen on film?
A: Just his gutsiness out there, his confidence and his arm.
Q: Is he similar to anyone that you have faced this year? Do you think he is the best you have faced this year?
A: He is one of the best. He has a big arm, he is gutsy and he can scramble as well.
Q: Are they more one-dimensional than most of the teams you have played?
A: Well, yeah, they like to pass the ball. They know their strengths. They use the screens as a run type of thing, so we know they like to get the ball to the perimeter.
Q: Do you as a secondary go into this game knowing that it might kind of depend on us?
A: Yeah, we always feel that if we do our job, then the chances of us winning are always great, so we just have to do our job.
Q: Do you think that is even more important this week because you are facing a team that loves to throw the ball?
A: At the end of the day, the game always comes down to who makes the biggest plays and we know we have to make big plays this week.
Q: Landon said that he thinks the glove may impact the amount of zip that Stafford can put on the ball. Do you kind of go into Sunday with that in your mind and thinking that you may be able to have a bigger impact?
A: We always go into every game being confident and thinking that we can make plays, of course, so that is the mindset we are going into it with.
