“I told you guys, everything we need is in this room,” Rivera yelled in a video posted to the team’s Twitter. “Understand this more than anything else: We can do what we want. We can be what we want. It’s up to us!” 

The players reacted with loud cheers, rightfully so after newbie Brian Johnson kicked the go-ahead 48-yard field goal with 37 seconds remaining to win the game.

“They are resilient and they bounce back and as I said the one thing that they seem to feel and believe is that if you give us a chance, we’ll see what happens and that’s the biggest thing we saw today,” Rivera told reporters of his team after the game.
