Following the game, St. Brown explained how the 2023 Detroit Lions are different from the team he played on as a rookie.

Yeah, we're probably gonna lose it now. It's like, we're getting these games. We never feel like we're gonna lose any game. Even if we're down.”
“We feel that we can come back, just because of the way we practice; the guys we have in this locker room. The team that we, that Brad's built. The resilience that we have, I don't know how to describe it. I feel like every game we have a chance even if we're down by 21.”
