On the play call on 4th & 10 when WR Darrell Langham caught a tipped ball for a first down…

"“I went a max protection and just ‘go’ routes, just ‘take-offs’. They were playing a lot of man coverage. The last two times on third-and-long, they brought pressure and we didn’t pick it up. They had some good blitz- and twist-type combinations, and we just flat out could not protect on third-and-long. This was like a third-and-long. I max protected, had a seven-man protection and let three guys run routes and just said, ‘Launch it in play. Put the ball in play.’ I really thought [Darrell] Langham was being doubled up. I thought we had a better one-on-one situation to his left, but I guess he [Malik Rosier] believes in Langham. Somehow the ball popped up in the air and landed in his gut. Minor miracle. I don’t want to get too crazy, those things do happen in football. They usually don’t happen when you need it the most. There are so many things to talk about, but just to talk about this thing going to the end, we have a play called ‘bullseye right’ – you go to the right, you center the ball and you call timeout and make the kick…”"
