Tight End Chris Myarick
Q: Can you take us through your touchdown?
A: Crazy play. Crazy first regular season catch for me. First touchdown. Kind of something we ran back against Kansas City. (Tight End) Kyle Rudolph caught something similar to that. We worked on it all week, and was just glad it got called.
Q: What was crazy about the play in that moment?
A: It was just crazy for me personally – finally getting the sign up, and that's the first touchdown of the game and it was coming to me. It was kind of a crazy experience.
Q: What was going through your mind as you were making that catch with your knees?
A: Just hold on to it as hard as I can. Just make sure it doesn't hit the ground. Kind of secure it. It wasn't the cleanest catch, but it still counts. I'll take it.
Q: Did it hit the ground?
A: No. (laughs)
Q: Was it even sweeter that it comes against this team?
A: It would have been just as sweet against any team. I mean, I didn't really put too much being from Philly and growing up in Philly, I really didn't put too much of that going into this game. It's just the next game for me.
Q: I'm sure you have a lot of friends that are Eagles fans?
A: For sure. They might be a little mad at me, but that's all good. I'll take our win for sure.
Q: What was this week like being a part of the offense, with the big change? How did you guys navigate through that?
A: It really was a big collaborative effort in terms of the whole offense coming together. I think all of the coaches did a great job putting together a game plan that we thought would work. Really it just came down to executing that today and I think we did a good enough job to get the win. Obviously, there's still some stuff we need to clean up and continue to get better at.
Q: There was a big emphasis on getting the ball to the playmakers. You're the guy who scored the touchdown. What does that feel like in the locker room?
A: It's pretty cool. I don't look at it that way as me necessarily being the playmaker. Any time my number is called, I try to do my job and make the play.
Q: Can you talk about your second catch? I think you got knocked down.
A: Yeah, I got knocked down. It was supposed to be out into the flat there. I think I kind of got held a little bit. I managed to get up quick and make eye contact with (Quarterback Daniel Jones) DJ and he was able to get it to me. It was good.
Q: Did you know coming out of the huddle on the touchdown that the ball was going to come to you?
A: I knew I was the first read, so I was ready for it.
Q: Did (Running Back) Saquon (Barkley) get the ball for you? Someone got the ball for you right?
A: Yes, he did. I was holding on to it at first and they wanted me to spike it. Saquon went and got it for me. I appreciate him for that.
Q: Did you grow up an Eagles fan?
A: My family did. Once you get to college, you kind of lose your (home team) – you root for guys you know in the league.
Q: What was this week like for you and all of the tight ends? With players getting hurt, you knew you're going to come in the game and play a pretty big role.
A: I'd say it was pretty much just like any other week for me. I always try to prepare like I'm playing, prepare like I'm starting, even when I was on the practice squad. Not much of that changed. Obviously, a little bit more reps here and there, but that was pretty much it.
Q: Did you have anyone on the Eagles that you grew up watching that you kind of liked?
A: I think I modeled my game a little bit after (Former Philadelphia Eagles Tight End) Brent Celek. They've always had good tight ends, so I'd say him.
Q: What did you think of (Former Giants Defensive End) Michael Strahan growing up?
A: He was a game wrecker for sure. Hell of a player.
