Cruz reflects on breaking Toomer's record


Q: How was Christmas after the victory?

A: Christmas was really good. I was able to open some gifts with a smile on my face with the family around so Christmas treated me well this year.Q: How long can you enjoy that game?

A: Not very long. We watched the film today and we went over our mistakes, what we did well, what we didn't do so well and we have to move forward. We have the biggest game of our season coming up this Sunday night and we have to be prepared.

Q: What was your reaction when they showed your 99-yard touchdown?

A: It was pretty crazy. I watched it a few times and I still don't even know how I did that. It is just an amazing feeling, not only just to score from 99 yards but to help my team get the momentum in our favor because we had been struggling in those first couple of series. To be the guy to do it was awesome.

Q: Has it set in how far you have come?

A: I wake up every day and just pinch myself and kind of think about how far I have come and all the stuff I have done. I didn't anticipate having this kind of season, I just wanted to come in and hopefully do some things well and find my place and to now have my place in history is crazy.

Q: What does it mean to have such an important game and be at home?

A: It is a big advantage playing here with our fans and their natural hate for the Cowboys is always good. The fans will be on our side and it is good to be home, it is good to be familiar with this place and them. It is going to be a good game. They are not going to go down without a fight and we know that. We have to come in and be on our 'A' game.

Q: How disappointing is it to not play as well at home?

A: A little bit. We let a few slip away early at home and certain times we didn't come to play, Washington for example. We just didn't show up for that game as a whole and it is a little frustrating but it is a point of no return now. We have to come out well and be ready to play. We are fighting for our playoff lives and this last game is going to determine that.

Q: What do you take away from the game in Dallas?

A: Early on we weren't playing so well although we were moving the ball offensively. We were kind of going back and forth and they were getting the better of us in the game. For us to show our resiliency and come back in that game was amazing. We have to start off better this time around because we can't let them start off good and get those points on the board. We have to come out as the aggressors and get some points early to put their backs against the wall.
