Player reaction

Quotes from the locker room:

Safety Eugene Wilson (on holding the Bills to three field goals instead of TDs):
“That was big, real key. Our defense was out there for a while, but to be out there that long and then just get away with three is good. We would rather have none, but they got real close to the goal line a couple times and we held them. We were happy to get off the field with three.”

Defensive end Jarvis Green (on Tedy Bruschi’s return):
“It was great. I heard him behind me screaming and making calls. Every time he made a play you heard the fans yelling and that pumped us up.”


Receiver Tim Dwight (on the offense)
“We stuttered and stuttered and stuttered and then we got going and made the plays. You cannot turn the ball over [2 lost fumbles] and we did that.”

Linebacker Rosevelt Colvin (on his big strip sack)
“I just tried to get off the ball as fast as I could and I had the opportunity to stop the play. I stripped the ball and the ball was there. It was a big play.”

Cornerback Asante Samuel (on his interception)
“I backed off the receiver and I read the quarterback. I read the drop, dove and picked it off. It gave us momentum and then Rosey (Colvin) came back and got a strip sack and that was huge. Finally, we get two turnovers and they were big in this game.”

Center Dan Koppen (on the offense)
“We really didn’t do anything different from the first half to the second half. We just tried to eliminate a lot of the mistakes. We have confidence in all of the guys in this locker room and when you have No. 12 back there you are confident you can win the game.”
