Running Back Saquon Barkley

Q: Have you ever been part of a tie before in any level of football?

A: No.

Q: What does that feel like? Is it more frustration, disappointment or does it just feel bland?

A: It sucks obviously. You go out there, you wanna compete and you want to win. When you put your bodies on the line and come out with a tie, it doesn't feel good for either team. Just have to treat it like a win or a loss. Just have to go back in and watch film and get ready for the next opponent and get back to it.

Q: You guys had the ball three times in overtime, twice got into Washington territory. How frustrating was it not to be able to get the winning points?

A: Frustrating. We didn't win the game. That's on us and we have to do a better job.

Q: What did you think of the offensive performance in the second half?

A: Not good enough.

Q: Why?

A: We didn't execute. We had momentum coming in. We didn't execute on that. We didn't make the plays all around. That's just it.

Q: On that third down play, it looked like there was some confusion. What happened there?

A: We didn't execute on that play either.

Q: Did everyone know what the play was? Was everyone sure of what was going on?

A: Yes, we just didn't execute it.

Q: Is that the play where you ran into Richie?

A: Yes.

Q: What did you think of the unsportsmanlike penalty on Feliciano?

A: I have to go back and watch it. From what I saw, I thought he was celebrating with his teammate. It is what it is.

Q: On fourth down, were you hoping you would go for it?

A: As a competitor, you want to go out there and make those plays. At the end of the day, Dabs (Coach Daboll) is going to make the decisions to put us in the best case to win the game. He's been doing a really good job all year, and we're not going to start questioning now.

Q: Have you been involved in a tie?

A: No.

Q: How does it feel?

A: It doesn't feel good. It sucks.

Q: How do you feel about the way you played?

A: All around, we didn't do enough. I didn't do enough. I didn't make enough plays, that's why we came up with a tie.

Q: You said it feels like a loss. Was that the message after the game? What was the message?

A: I wouldn't say that was the message. The message was get better, come back, learn from this and move on. At the end of the day, it's just a feeling…you've got a sour taste in your mouth after a tie. That's really what it is. That's why it feels like a loss. Like I said, go back, watch film, improve and get back on it.

On being down 10 early and going up late in the second half:

A: We responded. We were down 10 points and we responded. We have to put ourselves in position to win the football game. It's the NFL. Games will have ups and downs. Can't waver. We didn't do that, but when we needed it the most, we didn't execute the play.
Someone asked him about being involved in a tie early on ..
