QB ELI MANNING"I thought there were some good things. We had a nice third down conversion. We converted on that turnover and went down and got a touchdown. Those are the types of things you do in the preseason that you want to carry over to the regular season. There are still a lot of things we can do better. We missed some opportunities. There will be plenty to look at on the tape to see how we can improve. I thought guys executed well. They were in the right place, did the right things. That's what you want to see your first time out."

Justin Tuck

"I think as a defense we came out a little tentative. It's the preseason, and we don't have a lot of film on this team with their new coaching staff, so I think that's why we played that way, and they did a great job against us. But then we were able to settle down a little bit and play our game. It was big for Prince to force that turnover. I like the way our guys played for this being a first preseason game in these hot Florida conditions. I think our conditioning was good. Guys were flying around the ball. So that's something to build on."

Prince Amukamara
"It felt good to be out there. I know I need to earn my teammates' respect so I can be trusted out there. Those were mental errors I made out there on the long drive, but my teammates came right to me and told me I need to have a short memory. So that's what I did. I forgot about it and went out there and forced that turnover and that felt good.

"The touchdown, that was just a mental error. It's the preseason, so I need to get those out of the way now. I've got to correct those mental errors."
