Stevie Johnson was naturally ticked off about his fumble late in the game. He knew the significance of it right away. But the way the game unraveled for them at the end preventing them from winning the back and forth contest was the real issue for him.
“Just given the situation I was frustrated,” said Johnson. “Not necessarily with the (fumble) play because it’s the NFL, he’s in the NFL also. Initially I got off and beat him and he came back and made a play on me. That’s football. He made a good play and I’ve got to live with it. I saw it on the big screen and you’ve got to chalk it up to a good play and hustle.”
Johnson and Chandler both had good technique in tucking the ball away on their fumble plays. Falcons defenders just made better ones as they see it.
“Once again with those plays, mine and Scott’s you catch the ball 100 times and tuck it the same way,” Johnson said. “It’s not like the ball was loose from our bodies and Scott’s was up here. It just happened to be a good play by the defender.”
