Chargers Players


Keenan Allen, WR

(On what it means to get back on the winning side of things)

“It’s huge. It’s always great to win a game, no matter the fashion, no matter how it gets done, as long as you get in that column, it always feels great.”


(On what it was like playing in the weather)

“I didn’t think it was too bad. Obviously the rain, we’re not used to that at all, but the weather wasn’t bad at all.”


(On if there was a feeling of relief ending the three-game losing streak)

“Absolutely. The defense held the rope once again and hats off to those guys. Obviously, the offense, we have to be better. We can’t shoot ourselves in the foot – drops, offsides and stuff like that, we just have to be better.”


Khalil Mack, OLB

(On the game)

“It was relentless and it was a relentless pursuit. Understanding that they made some plays but ultimately defensively we were able to rally, which we have been working on, along with penalties and all those things, and in between. We are taking it week by week and understanding the challenges and getting ready for the next one as well.”


(On having eight sacks in the last five games)

“Man, I have to give all the credit to Coach [Brandon] Staley and Coach Giff [Smith] and totally the guys up front, and [Morgan] Fox, Nick [Williams], Bash [Sebastian Joseph-Day], AJ [Austin Johnson] and then the guys covering in the back end. This team balled and we are playing great team ball right now. We just need to get ready for the next game, the Broncos.”


JK Scott, P

(On whether today was the best game of his career)

“Maybe. I don’t know. There are some games where you don’t punt much and you don’t have a big role, but today there was just more punts so you are playing more of a role. I was really happy with how I played. I was just having fun, not worrying about results or performance, but just going out there and having fun.”


(On setting franchise record with seven punts inside the 20-yard line)

“I just think that we had a lot of opportunities to do that and we just executed on them. I’m not saying this to be humble or whatever, but I don’t try to think about the results or the stats anymore. I used to do that a lot but I’m just trying to have fun and enjoy each opportunity to the best of my ability.”


(On how challenging the conditions were to play in)

“They were actually not super challenging at all because of Josh [Harris]. He was on us all week about doing wet ball drills in practice. We were drenching the balls every single day and working that, so we were ready to go. We were prepared on field goal and punt to be able to do that.”


(On the punt that was downed at the New England 2-yard line)

“Honestly, I wasn’t trying to do that. I was just trying to hit a high ball but it was so windy that the wind kind of pushed it out. It was just a good situation.”


Tuli Tuipulotu, OLB

(On the win)

“This a great win, a great team win, and we’ve got to go on a run now. We’ve got to use this momentum on to next week.”


(On the game)

“I think just how big our defense is and no matter what the circumstance is to just go out there and play the game.”


(On the defense)

“You expect your big time players to make big time plays when they need us. Khalil Mack two sacks, Derwin James had that last sack, it’s great to know that you have those guys who are built for those moments.”


Trey Pipkins III, T

(On the play of the defense and special teams)

“It’s incredible, some games are just going to be played like that. Some games are going to be sloppy with sloppy conditions, and a defensive battle. It is awesome to see our defense play like that and our special teams were lights out today. It is awesome to see.”


(On the defensive challenge from the Patriots)

“I think it’s just that they are a big front, so it’s just move them, I mean there isn’t going to be a ton of space when they are that big inside. That is the biggest challenge is creating as much space as we could in the run game.”


Derwin James Jr., S

(On the game)

“It was a great win and it was a great team win. We just need to go on a run and we need to use this momentum on to next week.”


(On the defense playing well)

“I think it’s how ready our defense is, and no matter what the circumstances we just go out there and play.”


(On the big plays by the defense)

“I mean you expect your big-time players to make big-time plays when you need it. So K-mack [Khalil Mack] had two sacks and DJ [Derwin James] had that last sack and it is great to know you have those kind of guys that who built for those moments.”
