On the second half:
"I wouldn't say that something is off. There are times when we shut them down and there were times when they made good plays. They get paid just like we do. At the end of the day we tried to be effective with what we do as a unit. I think it is more so about us and not so much about them."
On the helmet-to-helmet penalty:
"In the heat of the moment I felt like we were trying to get up. I don't think I lowered my head at all, but the call was made you have to get up and play again. Next time we have to take him down before he gets there and it won't happen. I don't think it was helmet-to-helmet. We definitely made contact with him after the initial hit. I definitely didn't lead with my helmet. I have never led with my helmet on any tackle and to say that is crazy. There is nothing I can do about it. The call was made."
On third down defense:
"There were times we got after them and there were times when we played effective coverage. We just have to do what we have to do. We have to stop them, but at the same time they were pretty good at what they were doing tonight. They are a pretty good football team."
