BALTIMORE (93.7 The Fan) – Steelers came back from down 10, felt like more, at the half to score three second half touchdowns and twice stop the Ravens in the last couple of minutes to win 28-24.

Here are some of the key comments from the 7-0 Steelers .

Stephon Tuitt on the talk before stopping the Ravens on 4th and 3 late in the game

“It was the type of down to make sure we are on the same page, especially with the person who had the ball in his hand in Lamar Jackson.  We just wanted to talk about and regroup and discuss what type of rush we are all going to do together to make sure he stays in the pocket.”

Eric Ebron on change from first half to second half

“We make adjustments.  At the end of the day you make adjustments, that first half we came with a game plan and they punched us in the mouth.  We have to make adjustments.  That shows you a good team.  I’ve been a part of no adjustments.  I’ve be a part of things where we think we got it.  We came out here and we made the proper adjustments, we looked within ourselves and we fought.  We fought our ass off.”

Alex Highsmith on mood in locker room

“It’s super electric.  It’s one of those 5-star matchups.  It’s one of our rivalry games, we knew this was a big game.  We are super-excited to come in here and beat a great team like Baltimore.  We are super elated about it.”

Ben Roethlisberger on winning in Baltimore

“This is a really, really good football team.  They are ranked high on defense for a ready.  They got after us and it wasn’t pretty.  Nothing about this game was pretty from our perspective until the game was over and we looked at the scoreboard and saw that we won.  At the end of the day, that is all that matters.”

TJ Watt on using 3 outside linebackers in a game

“I think when you go against unique offenses, you have to do unique things on defense.  It was just another way to get a mobile player that can play the run and the pass and have more guys on their feet to protect the quarterback scrambles and be able to play in coverage and help with the run game as well.”

Eric Ebron on Ben Roethlisberger in the third and fourth quarter

“That’s kind of what I came here for.  I came here for that Ben Roethlisberger.  That guy that has trust in his players on the field that we wants to go win the drive.  I’ve been begging for it.  I’m asking Ben, ‘do you want to win, do you want to win, come on we have to do something’.  I’m so proud of this team, it’s ridiculous.”

Ben Roethlisberger on guys adjusting to his calls

“I know in my whole career people say that I always had the playground, backyard football.  Today it was in my truest form.  There were plays were I told JuJu you run this, Ray-Ray, you run this.  And we had guys that didn’t blink an eye.  It’s so awesome that guys didn’t have to be robots, they were able to do things on the fly.”

Mike Tomlin

“I think it’s important that we are truthful with ourselves.  We did not play well today.  We lacked detail in a lot of areas.  When you play good people, you are going to be up against it when you don’t play good.  We can’t allow the emotions of the moment to miss that fact.”
