On the challenge of playing New England...
"This is a great challenge for us this weekend. They're a great team. Obviously, I have the utmost respect for (Patriots Head) Coach (Bill) Belichick and his staff. They're 9-3, first place in the AFC East. We have a group of guys that are competitors, and I know that they're looking forward to the challenge this week, and we'll be ready for that challenge."
- Head Coach Rob Chudzinski

On Bill Belichick...
"(Belichick's) really creative and you never really know what you're going to get from him. Every week, he kind of throws something new at you and you're not really sure what it is. It's something that they might not have shown on film throughout the course of the season. Once you recognize that, you've got to kind of adjust throughout the game and go with it."
- Quarterback Alex Tanney

On Aqib Talib...
"You know it seems like he is a real fiery kind of guy. He wants to go out there and prove, I guess, he's physical and it seems as though he wants to establish himself as one of the top tier cornerbacks, and that's great and good for him. They have a great defense and he's a great player. At the same time, I have to go out there and do what I have to do regardless of who I line up against, but there is a lot of credit for what he's done this season. "
- Wide Receiver Josh Gordon

On Rob Gronkowski being different from other tight ends...
"You look at tight ends across the league and what he's able to do, a lot of times you'll see guys who are great receivers but not necessarily good blockers, or great blockers and not necessarily the receivers, and he does them both. He's outstanding at them both, and there's not many guys around that can do that. He's such a weapon and he's a clutch player, and certainly [Tom] Brady looks to him in those times. He's so big, can run so well, so athletic… He's just a tough matchup. Who do you put on him to cover him?"
- Head Coach Rob Chudzinski

On Patriots having 13 consecutive winning seasons...
"It's amazing. Everyone aspires to build that type of winning culture that New England has, and the key is how you get there. Every place has its unique challenges, has its unique situations, and so they're going to be different and they have to be different in style than what New England's created. But everybody aspires to build that type of winning culture, and that's what we're trying to do here."
- Head Coach Rob Chudzinski
