I was just trying to make a play,” he said. “When you look back on it, we got the ball I think at the 40-yard line — I’d rather have it there than the 20 to try to get the offense on the short side of the field.”Foles gave the credit to Cromartie.“(Cromartie) just fell off, and I was a split-second late,” he said. “He made a good play.”The second pick came in the fourth quarter.
