(On the comeback victory)
“[It was from] a lot of hard work in the offseason, training camp, the two-minute work and all the situational football things that we practiced and tried. It showed up at the end of the football game. We didn’t play the smartest football game that we played all season, but at the end of that game, our guys really stood up and knew what to do. It’s a credit to their coaching. It’s a credit to the guys themselves and what they put into it, and I’m really happy.”

(On Freeman’s nine-yard run on third-and-5)
“He did not have his best game today, but he was able to bounce back during situational football and play well. Him scrambling outside the pocket and getting a big first down really helped us. Him having the ability to use his legs and him having the ability to throw the ball down the field to really stretch defenses – it’s big-time for us.”

(On Mike Williams’ TD catch)
“When you have your player – and right now Mike is our lead dog guy – you have to give him opportunity throws like we like to call them. He had the opportunity to make sure either he comes down with it or no one comes down with it. And Freeman is starting to trust him and believe in him. He has thrown a couple of those balls up to him this year and we have just been waiting on him to catch one and he made two huge ones today.”

(On Sabby Piscitelli’s interception)
"It’s a big credit to Sabby. You are talking about a young man who lost his position at the beginning of the season. He went through the adversity, fought through all the tough things like the media criticism, and coaching critcism. He made some bad choices, but bounced back to help this team win. There is no bigger deal for a guy like that and I am proud of him.”


(On the victory)
“This wins goes to the entire team. Offensively, we really didn’t play well for three quarters of the game. We turned the ball over in the red zone. We really weren’t ourselves, but the defense really stood up to a manageable point. In the second half we were able to get a drive and take a lead, and Cincinnati was able to take it back. We had a three-and-out and everyone was like, ‘Aw man.’ We got it back with two minutes left and really it was the defense that set us up to be successful. The special teams helped us out with a big field goal. It was just a great team win.”

(On what he was thinking on Micheal Spurlock catch)
“Really, just don’t throw it inbounds. Don’t take a sack. We were right around our kicker’s range. It was going to be a tough kick, a long kick from the 35-yard line, but we were just trying to get a cheap five yards with Sammie (Stroughter) on an out route. The safety played really high over top and I just threw it to Spurlock. If he didn’t catch it then nobody would catch it and he made a hell of a catch.”


(On interception)
“You know, I think Ra called a great defense for that. We put a little pressure on the quarterback and I was just trying to help the team win and make a play. (Aqib) Talib, again, had great coverage and I think the ball was a little out of reach for T.O. and he tipped it up and I just tried to make the play with the ball in the air.”

(On the return after the interception)
“The funny is that we are all aware of what happened last week with Roddy White against that pick. I tried to get as many yards as I could and get as close as I could to sidelines so I could avoid a hit. I just tried to help our offense to get in field goal range and win the game.”

(On being 3-1)
“I think it is huge for us. We try to break it down into quarters like Ra says and in the first quarter we are 3-1. If we can go 3-1 in every quarter, that would be a solid season and we will be in the playoffs. We just have to keep going and take it one play at a time.”


(On the victory)
“You can play the best game of your life and lose, and still feel like crap so obviously getting the win like we did was awesome. We kept playing until the last seconds and it is great to come out on top.”

(On his interception return for a touchdown)
“All I really needed to do was the catch the ball. Coach Morris called a great defense and put me in a situation to make a play and I made it this week. It feels good being able to help the team out, but I really don’t do much on that play.”


(On coming from behind to win)
“Like we have been saying, we know we can win. We know we have a team together. We know they players are in place. All we have to do is execute and that is what it came down to.”

(On Freeman’s composure)
“You can’t say enough about him. He is a great quarterback. He showed again why they drafted him and he showed why he is in there right now. He is our guy, and like I said, he is great.”

    Anybody out there: How many games has Freeman won since he came to the NFL? Six, right? How many of those games did he bring the team from behind to win?
