Jason Campbell Media Session

On the Philadelphia Eagles defense:

"It's a tremendous defense and one thing that they do each week is bring pressure. They try and get as much pressure on the quarterback as they can and the guys behind them can play man coverage. It's definitely a challenge and it's that way every year. They are always a top five defense, year in and year out. With a defense like this you have to be patient, not get discouraged, and keep doing what you do."

On the preparation for the upcoming game against the Eagles:

"As a team we just want to keep working because this week's game is just as important as last week's game. It's just another game that we have to get ourselves prepared for and be ready to play. We have to understand that we really haven't accomplished anything yet and it's still a long way to go. All of our goals are ahead of us, but we have to just take it one game at a time."

On being 15 passes shy of Joe Theismann's club record for consecutive passes without an interception:

"To be honest, I've never thought about it until now. I just play the game and if something is there I try and take it and if not, I don't force the issue. I just try to continue to keep our team in good field position and try not to turn the ball over. Nobody is talking about it because we focus on it enough in practice and you don't want to think about it all the time."

On Eagles cornerback Asante Samuel:

"He makes a huge difference and is one of the best corners in the game right now. He has great hands, and that's probably why he has been leading the league in interceptions for the last couple of years. He is definitely someone who we always have to know where he is at on the field."

On playing in the Philadelphia Eagles atmosphere:

"They are just fans having fun and that just what they do. I remember when I was in college, fans at LSU and Alabama did some crazy things, but that's a part of the game that we can't control, so we don't worry about it."
