Q: Whatís the key for this defense to turn it around against the run?
A: Guys just have to fly to the ball like weíre known for doing. Itís simple things. Itís simple assignments. Just be where youíre supposed to be when youíre supposed to be there.
Q: How surprising is it when you see the poor tackling on film since there is so much talent on this defense?
A: Itís very surprising. Nobody saw that coming. But itís all things that we can get corrected and get corrected fast. Itís not a matter of guys not being able to do it. Itís just actually doing it and doing it with some authority. I donít think weíve been doing that.
Q: How much can the pressure up front help the secondary get some turnovers against Jameis Winston, who tends to force the play?
A: A lot. I mean, you canít complete a pass if a quarterback gets sacked and if youíre in his face and youíre hitting him, going to cause a lot of throws just to go up in the air and we have some guys that can attack the football. So I definitely think we need to do a better job of helping out.
Q: What have you seen from Tampa Bay on film when it comes to running the ball?
A: Again, we played a couple teams that struggled to run the ball, but that doesnít mean anything if we donít go out there and do what weíre supposed to do. So all I know is on Sunday, theyíre going to run the ball as everybody else has tried to do against us and theyíve had some success.
Q: Talk about kneeling for the anthem before the Eagles game.
A: Weíre talking about the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, sir.
