Head Coach Bill O’Brien
(on if he thinks Cincinnati has evolved as a team over the years) “Well I’ve seen these guys for a number of years, so going back to when I was first in the league in 2007, it’s certainly changed since then. Obviously different personnel, I think what they have right now is they’ve got a bunch of guys that’ve played together for a while. You’ve got (Andy) Dalton with A.J. Green, you’ve got (Tyler) Eifert, you’ve got the two backs, (Jeremy) Hill and (Giovani) Bernard, you’ve got the line, (Mohamed) Sanu, Marvin Jones is in there, so you’ve got some guys that’ve played together, so there’s a good chemistry there. That’s a big challenge, that’s a challenge because those guys know each other pretty well. That’s why I think, one of the reasons why they’re playing so well. As far as the evolution of scheme and what they do, I think everybody changes every year, but those guys have gotten to know each other real well.”
WR DeAndre Hopkins
(on the success of the team being tied to him having a big second half of the season) “Whatever comes my way, however I can help this team win, that’s what I’m going to do.”
