Jaguars Quarterback Jake Luton: Sunday, November 15, 2020

(on the windy conditions) "It was the conditions that we played in. Both teams had to play in it. It isn't anything I'm not used to growing up in the Northwest. I've played in cold and windy games so I don't think it was a huge factor. You have to go out and execute no matter what the conditions are."

(on the last drive of the game) "Yeah it was rough. That is the situation that you want to be in. Your defense gives you a chance to go win a ball game and we couldn't execute. It hurts. We are going to have to go back and take a look at it, look at how we can improve. I think the defense did a great job. They put us in a position to win the game and we didn't pull through."

(on his touchdown pass to Keelan Cole Sr.) "We had one of our base plays, double slants. You just pick a side. They ended up dropping eight on it so initially I worked inside to Keelan. He kind of took a peek outside. Keelan did a good job. He slipped an insider backer and found a void and I was able to hit him."

(on the locker room after the game) "We all expect better. I feel like everyone feels like we are really close. We are proud of the way that we fight. It isn't a lack of effort by any means. I think everybody on both sides of the ball is busting their butts as hard as they can. It is just a matter of execution. Guys are upset. They want and expect better. We all do. I don't think there is any hanging of heads. There is just a personal expectation from each and every one of us to improve and put us in a situation to go win ballgames." 

(on making progress as a team) "Yeah, that is great. You want to be in a position right there to be in striking distance to win a game, but at the end of the day this is the National Football League and we get paid to win games. Whether you lose by one or lose by 40, it is still a loss. It still goes in the loss column. So we have to figure out a way to make those plays when we need to make them and go win games. That is what we are here to do." 

(on what he has learned being an NFL quarterback these last two weeks) "That's a good question. I think I am still learning, just the pace of play, having to be quick with my reads and seeing the defense. In the NFL they do a lot of different things. They do a good job of mixing things up. You always have to be on your toes and locked in on every play. You can't get lazy with your eyes or feet. You have to be ready at all times. I think I'm learning every play and every day I am trying to learn and become a better player." 

(on if he learned from Aaron Rodgers today) "There were a couple of times at the end of half, clock running down where we aren't expecting to get the ball back, where I was trying to stand up and watch him for a second. Trying to be locked into our game plan and not worrying about what the other offense is doing, but there were a couple of times I got to peek up, look across, and see one of the greatest quarterbacks to put on a uniform. It was pretty cool."

(on if he is becoming more comfortable as a starter) "I think so. I had a lot of confidence coming into this game. Going through practice this week I felt confident in my role and my position on this team. I think that going back and looking at the tape there will be some plays I wish I had back. Some plays I think I need to make to be the quarterback for this team and to put us in a position to win games."
