Derwin James on the Divisional Victory in Oakland

Chargers rookie safety Derwin James talks with the media on Victory Monday following the Week 10 win over the Raiders.

On the frustrations displayed by both teams at the end of the game:

“It is frustrating. It was a high-intensity game. We were winning, but they were frustrated. It's just part of the game.”

On controlling the frustration:

“I mean, it's emotion. This game — there's a lot of emotions in this game. You're going to play with passion and going to play with emotion. You're not going to back down from anybody. It's just part of the game.”

On any potential challenges surrounding the expectations of a winning streak:

“I just look at it as, 'Every week, continue to get better.' Just get better every week. Don't get happy and don't get settled. I was used to winning in college, so I'm pretty used to winning. [It's just a matter of] learning how to win and continuing to do it.”

On the influence of veterans to manage expectations:

“Coaches have also been stressing to keep working hard and stacking the wins.”

On the biggest improvement of the defense over the extended road trip:

“Third down. Getting off the field on third down is getting much better. Our red zone defense has been good. We're playing together as a defense and you can see that we're really coming together.”
