Quarterback Daniel Jones

Q: Can you tell us first about Dallas and your experience there and what this week was like for you?

A: Yeah, obviously the play on the goal line and got the wind knocked out of me and stumbled there. I had no memory loss and when I got back to the locker room, passed all the tests. Just went through the week through the concussion tests and took it a day at a time with (what) the trainers were asking me to do. Passed all the tests.

Q: Did the lack of reps this week with what you were going through with the protocol impact you today in terms of timing and trying to get your rhythm?

A: I don't think so. I think I was still able to get those reps and practice and I don't think it had an effect.

Q: Seeing the slow-mo of the injury was kind of scary and you're saying it wasn't that serious?

A: Yeah, I mean I went through the protocol. Obviously, I understand the situation and I did stumble there. Went through it and went through the test, passed the test.

Q: Were you diagnosed with a concussion? You said you passed all the tests, how did you pass all the tests if you were diagnosed with a concussion?

A: Yeah, I was diagnosed with a concussion because I stumbled in that moment. That's a symptom of a concussion, but I didn't have a lot of the other symptoms.

Q: Did you feel like you were playing with any reservations today even on the run plays like the fourth-and-1? Were you nervous?

A: No.

Q: Can you put a finger on what happened from that first drive that looked so dynamic and on pace and just the rest of the game that wasn't that same execution?

A: Yeah, I think we got behind the sticks in a lot of situations and didn't execute. We had a good plan and we just didn't execute it. Obviously, the turnovers were a big deal and that set us back.

Q: How much did you miss out with (Wide Receiver) Kadarius (Toney)?

A: Yeah, he was a big part of it going in. He's been playing at a high level. Made an impact there early on. We missed him, but we've got good players and those guys stepped up and got to execute better.

Q: Can you share with us on the two interceptions that both went to (Rams Safety Taylor) Rapp? He seemed to be playing underneath. What did you see? Was he where he was supposed to be? Can you share what you saw on those two interceptions?

A: Yeah, he made good plays on both those. Bad decisions on my part. Credit to him and he had two good plays.

Q: What did you think of the fans booing?

A: Yeah, they're upset. We didn't play well, we're certainly upset about that, too. I get it.

Q: (Head Coach) Joe (Judge) said that he wanted to see fight from the team in the second half. That was a challenge at halftime and did you see that?

A: Yeah, I did. I thought guys came back and we fought all 60 minutes and defense, offense, I thought we competed. Still wasn't perfect, there was still too many mistakes, but I thought we fought.

Q: We saw the blind side a couple of times today late in the game when the score was out of reach. Were you concerned about the physical beating that you take?

A: No, it's part of the game. I've got to do a good job communicating and getting the ball out of my hands. Part of the game and got to do a good job.

Q: Were you surprised to still be out there at the end when it was so lopsided?

A: No, I appreciated the opportunity to be in there and compete and Coach Judge preaches 60 minutes. That's what the game is, that's how long we're going to compete for. Appreciated the opportunity to be out there.

Q: How much of a difference is there in the offense when (Tackle) Andrew Thomas is there and you can do what you want to do and the receivers can get down field versus when he's not out there and it seems like everything has to be adjusted a little bit?

A: Yeah, Andrew is a great player. He's played well for us this year. He's an important piece, but I thought those guys – (Tackle) Matt (Peart), (Tackle) Nate (Solder), (Offensive Lineman) Korey (Cunnigham), all those guys stepped in and played well. Got to do a good job making decisions and getting the ball out.

Q: For most of the game, you played without three of your top four wideouts. How much did that affect your passing?

A: Yeah, it's going to have some effect. You need to go into a week planning and setting things up, but like I said, guys came in and did well. We've got good players, we've got a lot of guys who can make plays. We've got to do a good job, I've got to do a good job finding them.

Q: How much was Kadarius a focal point coming in?

A: Yeah, he's been playing at a high level. He's been making a lot of plays for us last week and before that. He's a big part of this and so we were planning on it, but like I said, we've got to do a better job getting the ball to the guys. We've got good players and we got to be ready to go.

Q: Is there anything you could have done on the strip sack?

A: Yeah, get the ball out of my hands faster.

Q: That high throw last week to (Running Back) Saquon (Barkley), why was that high? Was someone on the line disrupting you there?

A: Just a bad throw.
