The Globe's graphic department helps us break down the key play of the game:
And here's some quotes from some of the noteworthy players involved in the play:
S Brandon Meriweather: "It was a great team effort. The kickoff team, we’ve been expecting turnovers all camp. It just came to a point where I got a solid lick and the rest of the team did the rest of the job.”
LB Pierre Woods: “Huge, huge. We go through situations on special teams all the time and Brandon Meriweather made a huge hit and I just came in after him and tried to get the ball and it came out. We got the ball back for the offense. Steve Gostkowski recovered it. I can’t say more about the kicker, man. He was way back there. He was kicking the ball, he came down, and he got the ball. I don’t know how many times he’s done that before. He’s recovered the ball a couple times. But you know what? We got the win and that’s what matters.”
Bills coach Dick Jauron: "DJ: You know, we talked about that specifically. I have no problem with Leodis coming out with that ball. He’s a dynamic runner and he was trying to win a football game, ice a football game and we’ve seen him do it, he almost did it there. From the sideline it looked to me like he was making a particular effort to cover the ball, to have it covered with two hands, and somehow it came out of there. Just one of those things that happens, but I don’t have any problems with Leodis. He plays the game hard. You know, he’s a guy that could take it the distance."
CB Leodis McKelvin: “If I ever had another chance, I would probably do the same thing. Next time I get the opportunity, I am going to hold on and make a better decision. If it happens next week I am going to do it again and you never know what will happen. I may break two and have the best game of my career. I am very disappointed. You don’t need to have turnovers at the end of the game.”
