Akers: "It was a good day. And, it was sweet for Andy as he was playing against an old mentor, and all that. It was just a good game for us; especially given how the game started for us. I thought that we just kept battling through. I thought the defense played a good game. I thought it was a crazy kind of wind out there today too; it was swirling all over the place out there. I thought Sav [Rocca] did a great job punting. even at the end when the game was pretty much out of reach."

Akers: "Personally, of course I like hitting four-for-four. Making four is a lot better than missing four, obviously. If I am making a 25-tarder or a 45-yarder, it doesn't change much. I have to swing it just the same. And, whether I make it or miss it, I have to go out and hit the next one. So, I am not going to get too high about game like this. But, when people try to tell you that you can't make them over 40, you have to know within yourself that you can do that. So, today was definitely a good day for us."

Akers: "It was real important for me today just to make sure (because of) how tight the game was. We weren't quite getting in the red zone a couple times. Going out and coming away with three is tough, a couple of touchdowns and you're right back in it. You got to make the kicks."*
