Defensive Lineman Dexter Lawrence
Q: What do you see from (Washington Quarterback Taylor Heinicke) him on film and do you feel like he's a guy you can rattle?
A: Well, he's a play maker and that's what he shows on film. You've got to respect him for his come up. He plays hard, he plays with his swagger, and he's got the team behind him, so we've got to go out there and affect him and stop the running game.
Q: When you can see that the other team has a guy that they believe in now, he's kind of got a little thing going. What's the key to stopping that belief? Getting on them early or something like that?
A: Winning. Just winning and doing what we can to slow him down, slow the running backs down, and be efficient.
Q: Has there been any frustration in recent weeks? You guys are putting a ton of pressure on guys but not getting the sacks. I know sacks come in bunches they say but it just seems like you're always around them.
A: That's just as effective as getting a sack. Last game, a couple hits turned into picks. As long as we're staying around him, making him uncomfortable, we're doing what we can. It's hard to get a sack, you know what I mean. Everything has to be on point. Proud of the guys how we continue to rush hard, continue to fight every play, and just keep going.
Q: Does it get frustrating sometimes when they are so many pressures and it doesn't end with (a sack)?
A: I mean, I want to win. I don't care about my numbers, I don't care about stats, the only stat I care about is our record. If I get 20 pressures, no sacks and we win that's fine. Sacks are sacks. You can get off the ball with no o-line and he can still throw the ball before you get there, so it's like everything has to go right. But upfront we pride ourselves on whooping the guy in front of us and affecting the quarterback.
