"I just told (Jairus) Byrd after the game, I said, ‘Heyman, you’re no longer my favorite target. I’m sorry,’" said Sanchez. "We laughed about it, but this is the way we wanted to play, and I still think we were pretty close to putting half a 100 on them if we are really sharp in the first half.

We got sacked three times and we didn’t get any sacks. You play that way and you’re not going to win. You’re not even going to look decent in this league."
