Rams OLB Dante Fowler Jr. – Rams-Buccaneers Postgame Quotes – September 29, 2019

(On how he thought the team did)

“The one thing I can say about our team is that we kept playing for the whole 60 minutes, so I tip off my team for that. We have a really mentally tough team we just weren’t able to pull it out and finish it out. I got to tip my hats off to the Bucs they did a really good job. (QB) Jameis (Winston) did a really good job getting the ball out, staying in the pocket, not letting that stuff go. We got to him, but he did a good job staying in the pocket and not just let us get to him like that. He made the throws that he needed to make. We just got to do a better job of getting him off the field and getting our offense better opportunities to get back on the field and make plays.”

(On why he thinks they’ve been getting slow starts)

“It’s football, you know how that goes.”

(On how the team normally starts fast)

“Yeah it does but I really can’t give you a reason why. But the Bucs did their job. They came out and played fast. I have to call a spade a spade and they made the most of their opportunities. When a team makes the most of their opportunities, they have a really big advantage.”
