Q: You played the most snaps since you've been here on Sunday. Have you been getting more comfortable with the playbook here? What can you attribute that to?**
Thompkins:"Definitely. It's definitely an ongoing process, trying to get better each and every day. Obviously in the last game I played a lot more and hopefully I can continue to do that. I'm really just trying to get better every day and get caught up to speed on everything, and make sure I'm moving at a fast pace."
Q: The wide receiving corps has a big test this week with going against Joe Haden. What have you guys seen from him and what does he do that makes him so effective at his job?
Thompkins:"Joe Haden is a tremendous football player. I think their whole secondary over there is a tremendous football team. We just have to go out there and make sure we're on top of our assignments, make sure we're playing fast and making sure that we're doing the things we need to do and that the whole game plays out itself."
Q: You've only been here a few weeks, but what have you seen out of Derek [Carr] and how has your relationship on the field been growing in the couple weeks that you have been here?
Thompkins:"Derek is obviously a tremendous football player himself and we're just trying to get on the same page and get things going and try to spend as much time together as possible and I think we're doing a good job with that and we'll see how far we can go with it."
