said he was really proud of the team. Always good to win on the road. They responded from a tough loss and went on the road and responded with a hard fought game.

* Really pleased with how we competed and overcame some mistakes. Defensively, we played really hard. We let our guard down at the end of the game. We had good redzone defense. Held them to 82 yards rushing. We had a season low on missed tackles.

* Offensively, excited about how we are rushing the ball. We are never fully satisfied. We want to convert some of the FG's into touchdowns. Zac Brooks was outstanding. 1st time ever to have 160 yard rusher and 160 receiver in a single game.

* Injuries pretty good. We do not expect anyone to miss the ninth game. We do not anticipate anyone missing the game.

* We are still a top 10 team. Tied with most consecutive Clemson team to be in the top 10.

* Players of the game were Rod McDowell, Sammy Watkins, Vic Beasley, Spencer Shuey, Chandler Cantazaro.

* We are picking our spots with Jayron Kearse. We are trying to get him some experience.

* Tajh is ok injury wise. He competed his tail off last night and just a little sore just like a lot of other guys. He will be ready to go.

* Frustrating in the redzone cause of the good drives. There was a couple of situations with miss assignments, coaching calls, and their guys just making plays.

* Adam is doing a great job on returns. He has been very steady with the ball with us. There was a lot of wind last night.

* Tajh has probably had a lot of pressure on him. He bounced back in a big way. His teammates stepped up for him. Martavis had his best game and Sammy.
