Game Vs. Cowboys: Quarterback Sam Bradford


Sam Bradford, Quarterback

On Jordan Matthews performance and what it means:

"It's huge! You can't say much about Jordan. The way he worked this week in practice, I don't know if I have ever seen someone work as hard as he did. He played great. That last play, you can't say nothing about how he went out and the finish afterwards. You couldn't be happier for him."

On telling Matthews (Jordan) the ball was coming his way in the huddle:

"I told him. I got the call from Chip, I came to the huddle and I said, it's coming your way. Win right here, and sure enough he ran a great route and obviously the catch was huge."

On what he saw on the field as he threw to Matthews:

"I thought Jordan did a great job. It was a route he was trying to settle, like an over and then come back out of it. Jordan's patient and I thought he did a great job coming out of it."

On his thoughts about the drive in the third quarter and performance in the second half:

"The guys finally got an opportunity to get the ball down the field. We created some explosive plays, and for the first time in a few weeks, we really utilized our tempo the way we wanted to. We did it in the first half and on that drive (third quarter drive) I felt like our guys did a great job. We played fast, we played the way we wanted to play, and it made a difference tonight."

On what he tells the guys on the field during the overtime series:

"I said, 'let's go end it right here.' That's what we wanted to do and we had the opportunity to do it and we were able to."
