Martin Gramatica on setting the team record for consecutive PATs: "I really haven't followed the record. But I like when we are scoring touchdowns so I am always happy to kick an extra point."
QB Brad Johnson on the importance of the victory: "I think there was a little bit more heat on us playing better football. We tried to have fun and make plays. The running game and (offensive) line had a tremendous day. I think we got into a rhythm in the huddle. Everything we did today was great."
CB Ronde Barber on the secondary getting two sacks: "We haven't been in a situation where they've been in obvious passing situations and we got those today. In the past we've had a bunch of them. Today we let it loose and finally got back in the sack business."
DT Warren Sapp on what he told Randy Moss during a laugh-filled conversation captured by TV cameras: " 'You all come all the way down here and it's 41-8? What are you all screaming about?' Then he looks at me says we were ranting and raving up there. (I said) 'Well, that was a dog fight ... it wasn't 41-8.' "
WR Reidel Anthony on the Bucs taking a knee on the Viking 5 three times in the final two minutes: "We don't have to run up the score. We are not looking for a BCS ring."
LB Derrick Brooks on the turnaround from last week: "We have just been off and today we were on. There were little things that we did not do, but today we got back on track."
C Todd Washington on his collision with Fearon Wright on a kickoff return: "It felt pretty violent, but I didn't feel a thing. Obviously he felt something because he was laying out there for a good while."
