KM: I'm at a family reunion in Seattle right now. Where are you?
DF: In New York. If we win in November or December, we get two days off after the game. In this case, I have the whole weekend off, so I'm relaxing.
KM: We need to note that this interview is being conducted after your Week 15 win.
Producer: It's going to come out after their next game. So, they could lose.
DF: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. We could lose?
KM: They're not going to lose. They got a few days off.
