"I just saw it open up. Any time I get to use my speed, I'm going to use it. The offensive line and my fullback did a great job, and I just cut off my fullback, Henry (Hynoski). Next thing you know, I'm in the end zone."
Q: Does 14-0 make you think "what is going on here?"
A: Not really. We knew exactly what happened with those two. We had a fumble early, got backed up, had two runs that weren't in the best situation and we didn't fit up quite right , we ran a little differently. The big play, we had one breakdown and that's 14 points. That's how it happens in this league. Big play offenses and for us it was just a matter of settling in on the sideline.

Cleveland running back Trent Richardson:
"We had a strong start, but one thing we've got to do is keep our foot on the pedal, we've got to make sure we finish the game. ... I thought it was going to be a good day. I'm not saying it was a good day, but the Giants have a real good defense, and you know a lot of people are not going to have that many yards or have much success when they are going against the Giants defense. You know, they weren't the Super Bowl champs for nothing."
