What They're Saying: Colts remark on Raiders' 'physical' defense

On the Raiders run defense:

"They're always trying to get an extra hat in the box by bringing a safety down so they have numbers and I think that's what helps them in the run game. Obviously, they're very physical up front, they've got a great D-line and great pass rushers on the edges." – Colts quarterback Sam Ehlinger

On quarterback Derek Carr:

"Derek Carr is my boy. He's a great quarterback. He makes great throws; he's accurate in his throws. He trusts and believes in his receivers as you can see when you watch film. … He believes that they're going to get it and actually, how he talks in the media about his guys, you can tell he has confidence in his guys." – Colts cornerback Xavier Rhodes

Tight end Darren Waller has been selected as the Raiders' nominee for the 2021 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award, which recognizes outstanding community service activities off the field as well as excellence on the field.
