Game Vs. Cowboys: Eagles Offense


Demarco Murray, Running Back

"It was a great team win for us. Obviously, we know we needed this game. They needed it. I thought we made some good adjustments in the second half. Coach put us in a great position to make plays. I thought offensively we continued to play and play and play and battle a very good defense. Our defense made a lot big play for us as well."

"It just gives you momentum. Obviously, we know the situation in our division, but we are not looking at any other team. We've got to continue to worry about ourselves, take it one game at a time each week, continue to get better and practice like we've been practicing. We've been having great practices and it's been leading to good plays by us."

On playing in Dallas: "I approached it just like any other game…I approached it just like any other game…like any other game."

"It's important for everyone. We needed the win. I thought we continued to play hard. Like I said, the coaches gave us great adjustments and we just kept chopping away."

"Obviously coming back here, there are a lot of emotions for a lot of people. But you've just got to check them at the door and, you know, don't try to do anything too crazy. Just trust in yourself, trust in what got you here and keep playing ball."

On his 20 yd run in OT: "The offensive line blocked well. The receivers blocked well downfield. It was a great play call for us."

"You've got to continue to grind. No matter what you've done in the past: bad, negative, great…you've got to continue to come in everyday to work. Don't let it affect your play. Don't let the noise, distractions and all that affect how you play. I think we have a veteran guys who have played a lot of ball but guys aren't down on themselves. We know what position we are in so we've got to continue to play ball."

"They are a really good defense. I've got to give those guys credit. Our offensive line did a great job blocking. We'll just continue to do what we've been doing and our offensive line will keep doing a good job for us."

Jordan Matthews, Wide Receiver

On how his performance tonight brought back the confidence: "I think anytime when things are going well, it's so easy to sit back and think, okay I've got to change something, or let me try and switch up, and do this or do that. Even if I am hard on myself mentally, I am staying in the same place. When I go back and work on the things I need to work on, that things will eventually get better. I tell myself, I've got to go to work, I have to continue to be consistent, so when game like this happen, it's not like it's the greatest thing in the world. I did my job."

On his success after sticking to his plan: "It feels good to get the win. If your team doesn't come out victorious, then it doesn't mean anything. To go out there and get a win and be intricate part of it; we played great across the board, Ryan (Mathews), DeMarco (Murray), Sam (Bradford) and Zach (Etz), making plays down the sideline. We couldn't do it without our anchor in Jason Peters. It's a testament to our offensive line too. The defense played extremely well. I though Matt Cassel came out and had his best game this season, and our defense was able to hold them to a field goal in that late drive and put us into overtime. I thoughts it was a great team effort."

On at what point did he think he would score on the last play: "Byron (Jones) played a great game against me. We were battling the entire time. He's a real aggressive guy and really athletic. I knew late in the game, if I was going to get open against him, it was going to have to be using my strength and a little bit of deception. Teams have been covering on those overs all year and he did a great job defending me on those overs too, so I just kind of gave him a move to that over and got to the outside. Right when I caught the ball I saw daylight, and Huff actually looked at me and said 'Oh, let me cover my guy' and once he hit the corner I knew I was scott free."

Lane Johnson, Offensive Line

On the move to Left Tackle: "It was weird. It was a short week's notice. But that's what you have to do. I'll be more comfortable about it in the future. It's just going to take time…I don't know if I ever felt comfortable. I just kept kick sliding a few times when I jump set (Hardy) trying to make him a non-factor. There were a couple of times (Hardy) beat off the ball. That's one thing I'm not as good at on the left as I am on the right is getting off on the snap count. That's something I'll build on in the future."

On the pace: "That's as fast as we had in a while. It felt good just to get them on their toes and get them tired."

Jason Kelce, Offensive Line

"We hit them with some play action, especially on the game winner. We did a good job of keeping them on their heels."

"I think it just comes down to executing. We may not be as big as some of the other lines. But we generally tend to get movement and block people well when we do our assignments."

On long drives: "Once we got rolling, then we started hitting with some tempo and once we hit them with tempo we saw they were getting tired. It really felt like those old drives. Once we get a big play, we just kept pushing it on them."

Caleb Sturgis, Kicker

On the 53 yarder: "We had to have it at that point. That was my thought process. Going back to practice on Thursday, we tried a lot of 50-plus yarders. So I had the practice, I had situations and during the game is just repetition."

"It's a great group of guys. It's a fun team to be a part of. I'm just trying to play a bit better and hoping I can help the team out."

"You can't ever lose confidence in yourself. The moment that you do, you're done."

"I couldn't be more excited that Jordan put that ball in the end zone, but you have to keep the mindset that is going to come down to me and that I'm going to go make the kick when my name is called."
