Calais Campbell - Sunday, September 16, 2018

(Opening statement) "We just need to keep on doing what we do. I'm always happy to just be able to play, you know. It's Tom Brady, the best quarterback who ever lived. He was coming to play, so we had a good game plan that we felt comfortable about, and we knew that somebody was going for the quarterback. It could be Dante [Fowler Jr.], and we were able to get him into the back to do damage for us and it was incredible."

(On if the win shows how the team has grown since last year) "Well, yeah, we worked hard on finishing games. We worked hard on staying focused down the stretch and being disciplined and finding a way to win games. I think that, obviously, you want to improve each and every week and play your best ball every week. This one felt good in that we were able to find a way to win against somebody that I have a lot of respect for."

(On how big Tashaun Gipson was in limiting Rob Gronkowski in the game) "We have some ball players on this team. Different guys show up each and every week, and it's fun to be a part of this defense because we have so many different guys that cam play this game. I can't wait to watch the tape and see what Gip [Tashaun Gipson] was doing, you know. I was just out there hustling, but to know that they weren't out there moving the ball and that they couldn't get down the field is a good feeling, because we worked really hard and we studied, and when we do that, good things happen."

(On what he was thinking when watching Blake Bortles in the first half) "You see, we go against Blake [Bortles] in practice. He has some days where he is just lights out and gets us. If he can get us, he can get anybody, because we feel pretty good about ourselves. I know what's going to happen. If he keeps getting opportunities, he's going to be a big time player, so I'm very excited to see him. I was just grabbing popcorn every time the ball was in [Blake] Bortles' hands. I say, 'He's going to do something great', and then he's running and spinning and…man. It was impressive."
