McDermott was asked about how the flight back to Charlotte went after the game.
"Honestly? I wanted to open a window and jump," McDermott said jokingly on Tuesday, via the Charlotte Observer. "That's why you can't sleep at night. ... The plays that get away."
"It's been fun to watch them come together," McDermott said. "They've got heart. They've got character. Going into the game last night I'm not sure anybody gave them a chance with how potent Washington's offense was to that point."
Jones got back on the practice field this week for Atlanta and should return after missing the past two games. With the game-changing receiver on the field, the Panthers defensive backs have a chance to prove how big a stride they've made in the course of 12 weeks. Even with an improving group, McDermott knows he has his hands full with the most diverse offensive attack in the NFL.
