“It’s a lonely feeling to fight and go through training camp and everything else and get to this point and have an opportunity to get in the Super Bowl,” Jay told reporters, says ESPN.com. “It’s hard. [There were] so many shots we took earlier in the year and able to bounce back. [To be] in the situation we were and to have things happen like that, it’s tough.”
