Q: Do you feel like every time you touch the ball you can turn it into a touchdown?

A: No, I just like to contribute to the offense the best way possible. That's my job.

Q: What is it like to come in here today to know you guys have played well the last two weeks?

A: It's good that we've got momentum, and we've got to keep going up from here. We've just got to keep on preparing well throughout the week and then going out there on Sundays and playing.

Q: What do you think has been the difference? How have you guys turned this around?

A: I think we came together as a team. We worry about what's going on in our locker room and take things for what it is, and we know what we need to work on and get better at.

Q: Has it gotten to the point where teams play you differently? Have you seen that yet, or do you expect it?

A: You probably could expect it a little bit, but I think coach (offensive coordinator Kevin) Gilbride does a great job at moving us around a lot, but then at the same time we've got Steve Smith and Mario Manningham on the other side too. So it'll be beneficial for us.

Re: Chemistry that has developed with Eli Manning

A: I think Eli, he's starting to get the feel for me as a little bit more of the season goes on. He knows I'm hardworking and I'm determined to get the job done.

Q: To see the offense finally come together yesterday, what was that like?

A: It felt good. It let us know that we're heading in the right direction. We just have to keep on going and keep working hard.

Q: Eli was talking yesterday about the second touchdown and what you guys had seen on film. He said he senses you guys listen to him more than ever and kind of trust the things he'll say. Do you feel that too?

A: Definitely. We know Eli is that type of guy. He sits in the film room a lot. So once he brought that to our attention when we had our film session. He brought it to our attention there was something that he said we can exploit, and we did.

Q: These big games that you've had, are you surprised by them or going into the game do you see a matchup you can take advantage of?

A: I wouldn't say I'm surprised. I just want to make sure I'm going in every game plan well and preparing well, and I think everything pans out on its own.

Q: Was yesterday's matchup in the passing game something you guys felt like you could take advantage of?

A: Right. I felt the same way. I felt like with the game plan that we had that coach Gilbride put together, it was just left up to us to go out there and make plays.

Q: What's been the difference in the three games you played well and the two games when the numbers weren't up there?

A: I think just a matter of probably schemes and the game plan. I don't necessarily think it was just a lack on anything.

Q: When you look at the numbers, six touchdowns in five games, are you sitting there going, 'Wow, this is pretty impressive?'

A: Honestly I really don't even think about that right now. I'll probably check it out towards the end of the season. Right now I just want to focus on contributing to the team and being here and enjoying it.

Q: You know you've already matched your total from last year?

A: I do now.
