A conversation with Darrelle Revis Craig Thomas

Q)How important was this win?

Revis: It’s real big for us. It gives us more confidence. This was a must-win for us. We needed this going into the bye. To get two wins under our belts in two games is great. The offense played great. Special teams played great. Going into halftime, we made some adjustments on defense to try to get off on third down.

Q)Did you think you were going to return the interception for a touchdown?

Revis: I should have cut back like I did last week. I had some blockers behind me. I felt their presence. Philip (Rivers) had a great angle on me and (Randy) McMichael, as well, and they knocked me out of bounds.

Q)How critical was the pick?

Revis: It was a big play, but I was (only) a part of the play. (Antonio) Cromartie made a good play deflecting the ball. The ball popped up and I happened to just be able to get my hands up under it. It was a key play because they were pushing. They were in the high red zone and they were going in to score. It’s good for our defense to make a play and turn the ball over.
