What They're Saying: Denver Broncos

Find out what Denver Broncos coaches and players are saying about their upcoming game against the New England Patriots.

On playing the Patriots...
"I think that we're all excited that we're playing a good team. That's exciting in itself. These games down the stretch mean so much for us; not that the other games don't. These are really important games for us, so that's exciting in itself."
- Broncos Quarterback Trevor Siemian

"You're playing a Hall of Fame quarterback and a Hall of Fame coach. It's your see-where-you're-at week. You play the best. You've got to love to play the best, right?"
- Broncos Cornerback Aqib Talib

- Broncos Quarterback Trevor Siemian

"I just love playing against the Patriots. [QB] Tom Brady is the ultimate competitor. I love playing against guys like that. When I say that I 'hate' them, I hate to love them. That's what it is. It's a love, hate thing. I love playing against them, but I hate them at the same time."
- Broncos Defensive End Derek Wolfe

On Bill Belichick...
"He's a great football coach. They've had some tremendous coaches go through there. They're very consistent in their stats and their approach. They have a lot of longevity in what they've done. Obviously they have a lot of great players. I have the upmost respect for what they do and how they do it. They've been doing it well for a long time."
- Broncos Head Coach Gary Kubiak

On playing against Tom Brady...
"He brings the best out of everybody. When you play against him, you want to play at a high, elite level versus him. You've got no choice. We've got the coverage and the rush. That gives him trouble; it makes him think a little bit longer. That's what we're going to try to do again."
- Broncos Cornerback Chris Harris Jr.

On the Patriots offense...
"They've got so many weapons, it's like the Patriots have got five different offenses they can run. Gronkowski down, OK, they just run the next offense. They'll be all right."
- Broncos Cornerback Aqib Talib

On Patriots QB Tom Brady's level of play this season...
"I think he's exceptional right now. He's been on a mission since he's come back. Obviously he missed a month. That's hard on players. You can just see how driven he is. I was listening to the game on Monday and he said that he might play until he's 45. There's no doubt that I believe he can. He's exceptional. I have great respect for what he's doing and how he's doing it right now. They're really good. They're running the ball extremely well, too."
- Broncos Head Coach Gary Kubiak

On LeGarrette Blount and the Patriots running game...
"He's physical and we know that he is going to try to run us over and run through us. That's the best attribute that he has, running physical and trying to break through tackles."
- Broncos Linebacker Zaire Anderson

"[Patriots RB] LeGarrette Blount is always a difficult player to play against. He's a big, physical running back. When he gets moving downhill, it's hard to bring him down. He's very physical. Stopping their run game, handling an improved offensive line and dealing with [QB] Tom Brady, that's a huge challenge. They're one of the best teams in football right now. We have to do everything we can to try and get this win."
- Broncos Linebacker Shane Ray
