“Shoot, I think it was going into halftime we were right in the game, it was just a series of bad events that happened for us in about a five minute spread. We had a turnover, they scored, we get the ball, we punt and had a good play down on the goal line to keep the ball out of the end zone, but they had a guy right there to scoop it in, run down the sideline and score with it. That 14-point swing turned the whole game around.
“When you look at every game, there’s always some event of plays that went down and changed the whole course of the game, so you can say that there’s always something, but it really doesn’t mean anything until we start winning.
“One good thing that I noticed is that when we were down inside the five-yard line, we moved the ball out to midfield, we had to punt it off, but fortunately we were able to get the ball and get the defense in good field position there. The times that we moved the ball well was off of big plays. Usually when we get a big play in the passing game we usually go down and score and that’s been the thing for us this season. We have to stick to that somehow.
“Obviously we have to forget the Dallas game. We’re going to get some film in today, have some kind practice – walk through or jog through out there and get ready for the Patriots. They’re a tough team, they’re smart team, they don’t beat themselves, so that’s one thing that we cannot do if we want to compete.
“It’s tough to put it behind you, especially when you’ve got consecutive losses. It starts to pile on and it’s tough, but I mean that’s our job. We have to move forward, we have to win. If we don’t win, guys aren’t going to be here too long.
“I’m going to keep on fighting, this is my job, I’m going to keep fighting for it and go out there on Thursday and play like I’m supposed to.”
