“I would have to say Sunday’s game was a lack of attention to detail, probably, as far as keeping the ball tight so it can’t get out. We had a few balls on the ground. We just weren’t us. We weren’t us, we didn’t come out well, we didn’t start fast, we didn’t have our swagger, really, on offense up and down the field like we used to. That’s one thing we have to do this Sunday.
“After a couple turnovers, the mood on the sideline was different. Honestly, it was. You can definitely tell it did change because we put ourselves in the hole that we really couldn’t get back out of.
“We’ve lost three of our last four after starting 5-0, but I just think about quarters. First quarter was great. Second quarter we were 2-2. We started off 0-1 this third quarter of the season and November’s big because it can set us up real nicely for where we want to be.
“It starts this week, getting back even, and then with the quick turnaround with Green Bay. But all the attention this week is on Carolina. We have to put together a good game plan and put it together on the field because we definitely have a heck of a task coming up afterwards.
“As far as the standings … I mean, you can’t help but to look. You want to know where you’re at. As far as last game, we wanted to put Chicago behind us. We understood that if we beat Chicago, that we’d put them behind us and have them playing for us the rest of the year. But we didn’t do that, so now we’re even with them with a huge game this week and another divisional game coming up after this one. How we do will be a good telltale for us.”
