As the days wind down before the Browns' matchup Sunday with the Steelers, we're checking out what they're saying in Pittsburgh about the game.
I don't have anything to lose. I was undrafted. I've always been calm, cool, collected. I think a lot of that comes from getting prepared and being prepared. When you've got some guys around me that are as good as they are that can block up front, make the catches, it makes my job a lot easier. Steelers QB Devlin Hodges, who will make his 2nd start of the season Sunday
He did a whole lot of stuff in camp where you were like, ‘OK, he might be a ballplayer. And then you give him more and more opportunities and you’re like, ‘OK, damn, he is a ballplayer.’ Steelers OG Ramon Foster on Hodges
We love being in hot button games. We love being in hotly contested AFC North games. We are not a group that runs from these types of games, we are the type of group that runs to these types of games. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin
I have a lot of patience for young guys, but one thing we need to do is take care of the ball. That was one of the reasons why we gave Devlin an opportunity in Cincinnati. Once given the opportunity, he took care of the ball and provided a spark, so we just thought it was reasonable as we prepare this week to allow him to continue to do that. Tomlin on why the Steelers are going with Hodges
We are going to go in there with a chip on our shoulder. They beat us the first game. We didn’t play our best game. We are going to have a chip on our shoulder and be ready to play. Steelers S Minkah Fitzpatrick
They won the last game. We've got to get back and we've got to win this game. It's a lot at stake riding on us for the division. We want to put ourselves in position to make the playoffs. This is a must-have game we've got to win. Steelers LB Bud Dupree
