Brown: "It was a tough game. They came up big. It was a great defensive stand for them. You have to give them credit. Going down there on fourth-and-1, fourth-and-inches, you have to push it in and unfortunately it didn't happen."

Brown: "We have a deep team. We understand that if someone goes down then you all need to pick up the slack. We have to put it in, it's one of those critical moments in your season where you'll look back on it and wish you had that back but it's still early and we're going to move forward and get this thing rolling."

Brown: "I just think we lacked a little in the execution part. We're just making too many mistakes. I don't want to say that they didn't have anything to do with that, but in large part it came down to execution and just making mistakes."*
