"We stuck together as a team for the whole game throughout adversity. This could be a defining win for us to really accelerate us and help us make that next step."

Harris has a knack for pass deflections at the line of scrimmage, something he credits to his basketball days. Harris has given himself the honor of having the best hands in the NFL.

"It's an honorable title bestowed upon myself by myself and so I'm going to keep going with it," Harris said with a smile on Monday.
