CB Trumaine Johnson

(On his interception)
"I just read the quarterback’s eyes and was able to make a play."

(On how the defense played despite giving up a big drive and the importance of being able to come up with a big play at the end)
"Of course. It’s all about getting three points. It’s about not letting them score. They drove the first drive all the way down, so to get three points is good."

TE Lance Kendricks

(On if he’s going to like playing with QB Nick Foles)
"Most definitely. He’s just in sync with the whole offense – a great rhythm, great timing with everybody, easy to work with. It’s going to be a fun season."

(On how the first-team offense played)
"I think we played pretty good, a couple mistakes here and there, but we’ve got to get better and we will."

LB James Laurinaitis

(On how the defense played)
"I think we handled the first 15 (minutes) pretty well. Teams usually come out and try to do a lot of different stuff and they certainly did with reverses and stuff like that. There’s some things we need to correct, no doubt. Overall, when you get put in a short field like that after the penalty in special teams and then they’re down there in the red zone and to come away with no points with the interception, that’s really good stuff. That’s what we expect to do."
