On the performance:
“In the past stretch, even going back to the last stage of qualifying, the things that our team always has to be about,  the fight, the commitment … we looked at each other and said this isn’t what it needs to be. As we move forward and the big games come, in order for us to be a team that competes at the highest level that has to be at it’s absolute highest whenever we step on the field. When you look in all those areas tonight, there is a lot to be proud of.”

On the crowds:
“We talk in football about what it means to have a home field advantage, and on behalf of the team we want to thank everyone tonight in Denver who comes out and supports our team and contributes to make it a great atmosphere and an environment where we feel like we’re being pushed on every second.”
