HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on if getting your confidence back is an issue with a team that has had so much success)

"It's probably not as much an issue with us.  It was a matter of going out and proving to ourselves that we could do what we're supposed to do and playing well.  I think we have too many veteran guys to lose confidence in what we're doing.  But I think it's important to win.  We wanted to stay unbeaten at home.  That was big for us because we know we have at least one home playoff game coming.  So you want to keep that momentum and that feeling of winning at home."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on if he is confident the defense is back or if he would like to see them do it again)

"No, every week is a new challenge, and we have done it.  We've played well at times, in spurts in just about every game, but sustaining it and doing it consistently every period for a five-or six-week stretch is what we're going to need here."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on if swarming to the ball is key for the defense)

"I think that's a lot of it.  Obviously you play a Jacksonville and they have two backs who have great speed and can break tackles and make long runs, you have to swarm even more.  And that's what we got back to (vs. Cincinnati).  That was probably the biggest thing."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on if getting a win on the road is key)

"I think we need to do that.  This is our last chance to play on the road before the playoffs, so you want to have a good feeling of knowing that you can take your game with you if we have to go on the road.  So I think this will be important from that standpoint."
