“Sometimes, as a quarterback, you have to have an understanding of the variation amongst urgent and not pressing. It is a 22-13 match, and we have a person running open down the subject and we couldn’t get it off. Our team understands that. Nobody else probably does.

Jarvis Landry will come walk over and say, ‘Lead when it hurts.’ We are down, whatever the score was, we did not give up.
“Not declaring he desires a pat on the back again for not providing up, but that just exhibits you what sort of particular person he is. He is the leader of this team. Interceptions are not normally on the quarterback. It goes underneath his stats, but it is not constantly on him. We just want to be in which we need to be and make the plays that need to have to be created.”
