He spun me, and it was a dumb interception. Probably one of the worst interceptions I’ve probably ever had … Yes, of course, the interception was not only dumb in the sense that it was a bad throw or not even close to the receiver.

So, it’s just a lot of little things in games like this, that leads to losses in the end.”
