Soundbites from Patriots locker room
By Mike Rodak
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Some reaction from the Patriots' locker room following their 20-16 win over the Cowboys:
Offensive tackle Matt Light: "We did a lot of things very poorly. ...We've got to play better than that, we understand that. We can't turn the ball over like that. Those things happened and we overcame them and we got a win out of it. So I think everyone battled back and played hard. These are the kinds of wins you want, but you don't necessarily want to be in those situations."
Linebacker Brandon Spikes: "I'm all about the W's. Call it what we want, but we win. ...It don't matter. It's all about the W's. I'm happy. I'm going to enjoy it tonight and try to get better during the bye week."
Guard Brian Waterson whether it was an ugly win: "I would second that, without a shadow of a doubt. But I know that around here that's not anything new to be honest with you. I know there have been a lot of close games around here and as well for Dallas. It was to be expected to come down to the end."
Tight end Rob Gronkowski on winning despite four turnovers: "Just the mental toughness, definitely. We just kept going out there. Even though we didn't have that many good drives, we had a chance at the end still and we accomplished it. The defense played amazing. Their mental toughness was off the charts. They were physical all game and making plays and stopping them all the time."
