Audible 1: "I talked to some of the coaches before the game, and I wanted to bring some fire and electricity for this game. But Jake and a lot of other receivers brought electricity, too. We kept a good tempo and looked pretty strong on offense." — Campbell

Audible 2: "The offense has looked good in practice, but (we wanted to) have success with it in a game against another team. We're all a lot more comfortable and now everyone will be buying into what we're trying to do." — Hudson
