‘Notable Quotes’ from Ben’s post-game presser:

It’s really tough. Going through it with Ryan [Shazier], brought back a lot of memories. It is hard to re-focus after something like that. Wish him nothing but the best, our prayers are going to him and his family. Prayers was going on while on the field, but we’re going to continue to pray for him. — Ben, on the injury to Seahawks DE Darrell Taylor.

We don’t think about losing. I’m just disappointed [that] we didn’t finish it in regulation when we had a chance, and hate that my kids had to stay up so late with school tomorrow. — Ben AKA Dad.

I was told that even though the ball was going forward, my arm was going backwards. So I had to ask Josh Dobbs, who is an aerospace engineer how that works…he said it’s not possible. But I can’t get fined for that because I’m just telling you what Dobbs said! (smiles) — Ben, on the explanation he was given on the “fumble” ruling.
