What the Patriots are Saying: Postgame Quotes

Running Back Jonas Gray

On whether his four touchdowns were a part of the game plan:
"No, it wasn't a part of the game plan. We had a good game plan going in. They hammered into us all week the keys to winning the game. One of them was getting the running game going. We were able to do that early and often and the guys did a good job blocking up front."

The New England Patriots take on the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday, November 16, 2014.

On setting the tone with their first drive:**
"Yeah, it was definitely a tone setter. I would definitely agree with that. The guys just did a good job up front. They were picking me up after every play, picking me up off the ground, telling me good run, staying, giving me little pointers here and there, what they want me to do, what do I see, a lot of communication up front, and guys just doing their job."

On how fun it is to run behind an o-line that is playing as well as theirs did today:
"That's when you want to be at your best. It's exciting. You're happy for those guys. They're excited for you. It's all coming together as a team. It's good. When the guys are doing well like that up front, they play a huge part of my success."

On whether he had any indication that tonight would be a special night for him:
"I had an indication all week that I was going to be a big part of the game plan. We knew that getting back to the run game was going to be a big emphasis. It's kind of funny because on Saturday I remember walking into the building, and Mr. Kraft pulled me aside and said 'You're going to have a big game this week, so be ready.' Just hearing that from the owner, hearing that from the head coach, hearing that from the leaders of the team definitely gives you a positive outlook. It definitely gives you the mindset to go out and do your best."

Tight End Rob Gronkowski

On beating some of the top teams in the conference recently:**
"We just have to keep working hard, stick together as a team. Go out to practice this week and get prepared and do what we've been doing every week. Go out and execute on Sundays."

On getting into it with Sergio Brown:
"Yeah definitely, it's just a part of the game. A lot of emotions. You've got to be physically and mentally tough. Everyone on our team was playing hard. Everyone was playing physical. We went out there and did a great job as a team."

On how he's feeling physically:
"Feeling good. Just had a bye week. Rested up. Healed up the body. Got a little bit stronger working out and stuff. Everyone's doing well and we've all just got to keep working hard."

Cornerback Darrelle Revis

On the biggest adjustment made throughout the game:
"There were a bunch of adjustments especially going against the number one offense throughout the league. I think you just have to look at how focused we were throughout the game. Coach emphasized that the whole week. This is going to be a 60-minute game, and that we have to stay focused. I think guys were really attentive and really stayed focused throughout the game."
