Getting that first win was cool. It was a blessing. I just feel blessed and honored to be able to share it with a group of guys that I have love for in this organization. Just overall it’s always a good feeling.
I was thankful for Coach Fox’s first win as the Broncos’ coach, and we players need to make sure he has many more to come. Because he deserves it.
The game came down to a drive in the fourth quarter, and the defense had to step up. It was just a point in time in the game where big-time playmakers made big-time plays in big-time situations. Wilhite, Von, the whole defense, we came together and we made it happen. But it all started off when the offense set the tone for us. Overall it was great execution on both sides of the ball.
When that last pass of the game hit the ground right beside me, I was obviously excited. My whole goal is just to get the ball on the ground so we can leave and go home with a W. Then I heard fans screaming and guys rushed the field, so I knew we did the job.
A.J. Green and those guys did a great job, too — he’s got a bright future. It was a good experience this past weekend.
Now we’re most definitely looking for a good follow-up to that win in Week 3. Winning is always the key. We’re playing a great opponent in Tennessee, and they came off a great win against the Ravens, so I’m sure they’re ready to launch their season as much as we are.
I’m ready for a hostile environment, the first road game of the season. I think we’re ready as a team. It’s not going to be an easy walk in the park, but we’re going to go in there, play football, compete and have fun. It’s going to be a great task.
