Three for Three with Johnathan Franklin

On the pregame hype:
“It’s just talk. Talking isn’t gonna win you a game, talking isn’t gonna score a touchdown, talking isn’t going to make any plays. We blocked all those newspaper articles out, we blocked everything their coaches said out.”

On settling for field goals at key moments:
“Every time we get in the red zone, we want to put points on the board. I wish we would’ve come out with touchdowns, but they’re points. Those field goals helped us win this game.”

On the Neyland Stadium crowd:
“When I first walked out for pregame warmups, there was hardly anybody there. That’s how I expected it the whole game to be then. I was like, ‘OK this is nothing, all that was overrated.’ But when we came out, man, it was ridiculous. I’ve never seen a stadium like this.”
