Calais Campbell - Sunday, November 18

(On the loss) "This is as tough as it gets. There are going to be some games you definitely lose and some you'll definitely win. But when it comes down to that last play, and you're on the losing side of it, those hurt – especially in a situation where we're a desperate team in need of a win. It hurts even that much more. We played a good ball game – just not good enough to win – against a worthy opponent who were like gladiators today. You have to take your hat off to them."

(On the team not giving up) "We just have to look forward to next week and try to get back in the win column. There's a still a lot of life left. I don't know if 9-7 will get us where we want to go. It might. It might not. We might need some help. It is what it is, but us getting there is the goal. If we do, I can live with that. These guys in the locker room believe. Nobody's quitting and nobody's giving up. Who I am and who we are is not going to change either. We are going to keep fighting. We don't know what the future holds, but we're going to keep fighting one play at a time. If we can go and play our best ball and find a way to a 9-7 record, hopefully that will be enough to get in. At the end of the day, this team is going to give everything they have. It's hard to win six games in a row in this league. But it's possible. It just starts with one. "

(On the defense stepping up today) "We prepared the right way. We saw the tide turning. We were focused. I had a great week of practice. We were locked in and engaged and we were communicating. They have some weapons and made some incredible plays at the end of the game. They had a little help, but it is what it is. We have to bounce back next week."

(On his roughing the passer penalty which negated a Jaguars interception) "I try to play football the only way I know how to. I guess I stayed there too long on him, but I can't control whether they're going to throw a flag or not. I try my hardest to play the game the right way within the rules. Sometimes they're going to call you for a penalty. That would have been great field position."
