"I think the fact that they got their win and they beat us, which is obvious, but then you go out in the media afterwards and talk about being soft and this and that," Stevie Johnson said. "You won, you won, that's it. Any other team comes out and gets a win, nobody's saying anything. You do your job and that's it. They felt the need to come out and say stuff that's really irrelevant and started a little fire in me and hopefully it did with the people around me."

You’ve got to do some different things to try to create some pressure and I think our defensive staff has come up with some things this week."
