Quarterback Daniel Jones

Q: What's your reaction to the tie? The feeling in the locker room? How do you feel after the tie?

A: I think we're all pretty disappointed with the result. Certainly not the one we were looking for. We'll go back to work and clean up a lot of things. I think it's safe to say we're disappointed but looking forward to getting back to work and working on things we got to improve on.

Q: Fourth and three in overtime – did you feel like you wanted to have the ball and a chance for the offense on fourth and three in overtime?

A: Yeah, I think those situations – our coaches and he's got a group of people who study those situations and make the best decision for us and the game situation. I understand that. We had a chance, got the ball back, had a chance to go down and kick it. Yeah, I understand.

Q: You mentioned you were disappointed in the result. How much do you view it as a loss? That's what it kind of sounds like when I'm listening to you talk about it.

A: It's not a loss, it's not a win either. I think you understand that part of it but just disappointed that we could've played better, could've taken advantage of some situations and won the game. That's the disappointing part. It's not a loss, you know, I think we understand that. We'll look to improve going forward.

Q: What's the feeling today on the Legacy Game with the fans? Can you describe it?

A: Yeah, it was a great atmosphere. We felt the fan support and energy throughout the game, especially down the stretch there in the fourth quarter. We appreciate that and hats off to them for the energy and juice they brought all game.

Q: The deep pass to (wide receiver Darius) Slayton at the end of regulation, you guys had an opportunity there. What happened there? What did you see from that play?

A: You talking about the one on the right side?

Q: Down the center of the field. I think it was on first down.

A: They let him go, I saw him and tried to get it to him there. Tough play. I thought we had a chance to make it.

Q: Can you take us through the emptions of the game being down 10 early, taking the lead late and then back and forth in overtime?

A: We dug a hole for ourselves to start the game going down 10, so that was tough. I thought we finished the first half strong, clawing back and tying it up. Started the second half well but didn't do enough down the stretch. We had plenty of opportunities and didn't convert on them. Disappointing down the stretch for sure.

Q: What happened on the third down play just before fourth down? Was it a miscommunication in the backfield?

A: Yeah, miscommunication. I got to get us in the right situation, get us in the right play and, yeah, that's on me there.

Q: What happened there? It looked like you were trying to tell (wide receiver) Richie (James) something right before the play.

A: Yeah, like I said – I got to do a better job of communicating that and making sure we're in the right play and the right situation and execute in those critical situations. Yeah, I got to be better there.

Q: Where do you think the running game is at this point coming off of two tough games? Maybe a little improvement today but what did you see from the running game?

A: I thought we ran it well for the most part. I thought the guys up front did well against a good front and we were able to move the line of scrimmage and create some plays in the run game. Like each aspect of our offense, we'll go back and study it and see what we can work on. I thought the guys up front played well.

Q: How much pressure did you have going into overtime?

A: It's an important game, I think we all felt that – all understood what was at stake. I think you focus on what you got to do, you focus on executing. We all felt prepared for the situation.

Q: What does a tie mean for your playoff hopes? How do you view that?

A: I don't know. I haven't really thought about that or looked at how that's going to affect us. We're taking it one week at a time. We got to clean up this film and look to improve and get ready to play our best ball next week. That's what we're focused on.
