RB Saquon Barkley
Postgame vs. New Orleans
September 30, 2018
Q: Why do you think the team was unable to keep the momentum going after the first drive?
A: Yeah, we got off to a fast start. The first series we had, we moved the ball with ease, got in the end zone. They played great defense today. You got to give credit where credit is due. The Saints are a heck of a team. Our defense played lights out. We as an offense got to find a way to be better and help the team overall.
Q: On your touchdown, was it designed for you to go over the top?
A: Itís not really designed to go over the top. I just wanted to find a way to get in the end zone. Iím always believing. I donít care if weíre down by two, three touchdowns, Iím still believing that weíre able to come back and win that game. I knew that getting into the end zone right there and being able to get a two-point conversion, itís a one score game, so whatever it took to find a way to get in to the end zone. I came short the first time and I didnít want to be denied the second time.
Q: Do you feel like the offense is close to breaking through?
A:†Yeah, I do believe that weíre very close. I do believe that weíre still talented. I still believe that the sky is the limit. We have to continue to believe in each other, continue coming to work. Start over right now. Come in to Monday, take the good, leave with the bad and continue growing.
Q: Where does today rank in the games you have played with how much you were tested?
A: I donít know. Thatís a good question. Every team that weíve played so far is a great team. Itís the NFL. Weíve been in dog fights in every single game. Last week we were able to find a way and grind it out and this week we came up short. Thatís where we are at right now. Weíre that close, weíre that close. We just have to continue believing in each other, believing in each other in the locker room, in the coaching staff and good things will come.
