I think we have overcome a lot this year. Down but not out.
I was probably as excited as I have been in a long time.
When you have 70,000 people cheering against you, it is pretty sweet when you win on the road.
The odds were stacked against us. It hasn’t been that way for us in a while, and it certainly was this year.
These are memories that will last a lifetime.
This was an incredible win. I will remember this one for the rest of my life.
There are a lot of physically tough players in that locker room, a lot of guys that just go out there and compete and won’t quit and just battle you no matter the situation.
Julian is a competitor. From his first playoff game against the Ravens to tonight, this guy gives you all he has every play all the time. He is a very physically and mentally tough football player.
Some unbelievable plays by Chris (Hogan), Phil (Dorsett), Gronk (Rob Gronkowski), James (White), Rex (Burkhead), Sony (Michel) and the line. It was fun to watch. It was fun to be a part of it.
It’s unbelievable – three Super Bowls in a row. I don’t really have words to kind of explain that.
It’s our players – Julian [Edelman], Gronk [Rob Gronkowski], Sony [Michel], Rex [Burkhead], James [White], CP [Cordarrelle Patterson], Phillip [Dorsett] – you go down the list. Everyone was stepping up and making plays in big time situations. We needed them today and we got them.
We just knew that, ‘Alright, this is the time.’
This game was one of those games that was very emotional. It took everything we had and we did it.
It’s an emotional roller coaster. It’s one of those games where it’s one play at a time, one snap at a time.
Rex Burkhead (on the final drive)
We knew if we scored that the game was over. We needed to score a touchdown, of course. Our mentality was that we needed to punch this thing in the whole time. The third down conversions, continually doing that, and spreading the ball around really helped with that. The offensive line did a tremendous job up front and James Develin opened up some holes there in the end and made my job easy.
I was thinking that hopefully that I can get this thing in and when it happened, it’s a feeling that you really can’t describe.
