NEW ORLEANS SAINTS VS. CHICAGO BEARSSUNDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2017 ● MERCEDES-BENZ SUPERDOMESAINTS QUARTERBACK DREW BREES
On the game today:
"We found a way to win. It was a good team win, but nobody is real satisfied in that locker room right now. We still have a lot of work to do. We have a lot of room for improvement. We are not satisfied where we are right now. We still feel like we have a long way to go."
On his emotions at the end of the game when defense is on the field:
"You are preparing yourself. The first time we stopped them the score was 17-12. I was preparing to have a drive that is going to get us a field goal to win the game. After that, I'm preparing for overtime. I'm not a fan. I am very much locked in on what we might have to go out there and do to finish the game."
On the Ted Ginn long pass play in the fourth quarter:
"I just launched it. I had to step up. I felt like he had speed and the safety was recovering deep. I thought there was an opportunity to launch it and give him a chance. He came down with the catch and made a great play."
On Chicago taking away the big plays:
"We had opportunities for a couple of big plays, but the pressure got to us. They did a nice job. That's football. That's the balance. They better get there in time or they open themselves up for big plays. Sometimes they get you."
