Quote of the Day
Mike Gesicki on being from New Jersey and if he looks forward to going back to New Jersey to play the Jets:
"Yeah, it's fun. Obviously you walk out in the stadium and you hear a lot of people' hey, I'm from Manahawkin, hey I'm from Toms River, hey I'm from da-da-da.' I'm like 'alright yeah, good seeing you,' and all of that kind of stuff. It is good getting back in New Jersey and seeing some family. It's easier for them to get to some games and all of that kind of stuff. It's cool, it's exciting. But like I said, our number one goal is to go up there and get a win."
