Garrett Wilson – ‘I love Joe’

Q: At what point did you realize the comeback was possible? 

Garrett Wilson: As soon as (Nick) Chubb scored. Coach said, ‘they just gave us our only chance.’ We go down 30-17 and then (Jets WR Corey Davis) CD has a quick touchdown. At that point, we are all believing. Now we are going to get this onside kick. As soon as they scored, we were like ‘Oh, that is kind of quick, we still have shot at this.”

Q: What is your impression of QB Joe Flacco and how he plays?

Wilson: I love Joe. The way he goes about his business is that he understands the way the NFL is and you can tell by looking at him. When everyone is trying is a little bit frantic sometimes running around the facility, Joe is just kind of walking through there. It translates to the game too and it translates to how he goes about preparation. He is in control and he really wants to be on the same page as all of us, especially with these younger dudes.

Q: What happened on the game-winning touchdown?

Wilson: It is just executing the same plays we would hit on earlier in the game. We got the same end of the field, and they ended up giving us the same look right there. Just taking advantage, if they give something up on the field, you have to take advantage. Especially that time of the game.

Q: After hurting your back, did you think it would be hard to go back in the game?

Wilson: No. Never that. It is always how fast I can get back in the game. It is never, “I’m out.”

Q: What was your reaction when you guys recovered the on-side kick? 

Wilson: I went crazy. I’m sure there will be a TV clip. I went absolutely crazy on the sideline. I didn’t want my drop to be the reason why we lost the game.
