Postgame vs. Kansas City Chiefs, November 19, 2017

Q: Did you need that? Did you need that last field goal?

A: Yes, sir.

Q: I mean walking out of here 9-9, might not have felt the same way, Iíd imagine?

A: Definitely.

Q: How do you explain what happened today?

A: I thank God, just responded. A couple of guys were called out. You know what I think, as a team we went out there and responded well.

Q: DRC, I apologize if this was asked before, but can you just talk about the bounce back game that Jackrabbit [Janoris Jenkins] had, especially after the last couple of weeks?

A: Thatís one person weíre definitely not worried about in the locker room because heís a competitor and we know as long as heís out there on that field weíve got a great chance to win. So he definitely responded well and I mean thatís what we get out of him all the time, so weíre not worried about him.

Q: What about the defense in general? You guys, you know, basically didnít let the tight end run wild on you, you shut down the run game. How complete of a win would you say this was for the defense?

A: I mean it was a good, great feeling. The Kansas City Chiefs are a real good offense. They can run the ball, throw the ball and for the most part it made it one-dimensional and we went out there and we just kept fighting and never looked up at the scoreboard. At the end of the game we came out 12-9.

Q: Thereís a lot of pressure on Ben [McAdoo] lately. Heís been taking a lot of heat. How much do you think a win like this means for him?

A: It means a lot, man, because itís against a team that everyone knows is a special team, a playoff caliber team and you go out there and hold them how we did and to get a win at home, I think it takes a little bit off of him. Weíve just got to keep rolling.

Q: How much do guys realize that the heatís on him?

A: I think a lot. You can tell by the guys responding. I think every man went out there with a mentality not to lose.

Q: What did you see from Jackrabbit [Janoris Jenkins] today? Did he look like a different player from last week?

A: What did I see? Nah, no, no, no. The only thing about him is heís a competitor. You know how heís going to compete. I think they came at Ďem a little bit today and he stepped up for the most part. He made his plays.

Q: Do you feel like he had something to prove after last weekend?

A: Nah, not a guy like that. Heís been proving it. You just got to go out and play like that every week.

Q: He got a lot of criticism this week about his effort.

A: Thatís football.

Q: You donít think that affected him at all?

A: Nah, no, no, no.

Q: You didnít see it? He brushes it off?

A: Definitely. Because he knows heís a competitor, man.

Q: When he plays like that, how much does it help the defense or changeÖ?

A: It helps a lot. When heís on the field doing what heís doing, falling on guys, shutting guys down, we can play a little bit, do a little bit more on the defense.

Q: Why do you think the result was so much better than the previous two weeks? This was supposed to be a better offense and you guys had a significantly better result.

A: I think after the week we had, you know, guys being called out, being put on the bench, I think everybody responded well. I think just being called out as a team, I think we responded well.
