QUOTE OF THE DAY
Head Coach Chan Gailey
On the opportunity to put the Patriots in a hole:
“It is big. It is a great opportunity for us. They are going to be at an all-time focus level for this ball game just because of who they are. They are the defending (AFC) champs until somebody knocks them off. You are going to get the best they have got and we have to go play. It is a great opportunity.”
