What were New York Giants players saying after Sunday’s 17-9 loss to the Los Angeles Rams? Let’s go to the videoconferences to find out.

Nick Gates on the running game ...

“One of the positive things we did was ran the ball. I think we had 130 yards on the ground, so that’s a positive from the last three games before.

“I just think everybody held their blocks more and finished downfield on their guys. Running backs were hitting holes and just running downhill hard.”

Nick Gates on the lack of touchdowns the past two games ...

“Just got to keep fighting, keep going, keep protecting for (Daniel) and running the ball, and just keep moving the ball down the field and giving us an opportunity to score. We shot ourselves in the foot a couple times when we got to the red zone with a couple of penalties, and it kind of hurts you when you’re down there, so we’ve just got to eliminate those and we’ve just got to play better.”

Conerback James Bradberry on improved play by the defense ...

“We just expect to go out there and dominate. That’s our whole motto, whether it’s a win or a loss, we need to go out there and dominate and show that we are a dominant force. If they don’t score, they don’t win, that’s the point at the end of the day.”

Blake Martinez on the play of the defense ...

“I think it was awesome. I think that’s the type of team we want to be, and I think overall it’s something we’ll hold our hat high on, but at the end of the day, it’s a production league, it’s getting wins, and that’s what we want, and I think we’re not going to be satisfied until that happens.”

Blake Martinez on how the Giants handled the Rams’ offense ...

“Our game plan was making that type of team keep having to snap the ball. I think both their drives were 15-play drives, or close to that, and at that point we knew that type of team didn’t want to have to keep doing that, and maybe went away from some things or went back to some things, whatever way you want to think of it, and at that point, we kept sticking to what we were doing and made adjustments and made plays.”

Daniel Jones on the lack of points ...

“We’ve just gotta execute when we get down in scoring position. I think we’ve hurt ourselves in a lot of those situations.”

Daniel Jones on why the Giants’ offense can get better ...

“We’ve been able to move the ball and get down there. I think once we get down there we need to execute. We’ve got the pieces to do it.

“We’ve gotta score more points. I think we all realize that.”
