The opening statement from Tom Coughlin’s post game presser:
Very disappointed. Players played hard. They wanted to win very badly. We were down in the green zone a couple of times in the first half and came away with field goals. You always hold that in the back of your mind, is that going to come back and haunt you? Obviously it did.
We rushed the ball very well tonight. We didn’t particularly throw the ball or have as much yardage as we would have thought with the passing game. Our defense, I think, had one third down up until that last drive. We had them in outstanding position there a couple of times, 3rd and 10. Even the last one 3rd and 10, that’s not gimme field goal, not on a night like this where the ball is hard. Both teams played hard.
We felt like we obviously had a chance and should have won, but we didn’t. Credit where credit is due and back to work.”
