Mike Tomlin

“It was significant tonight on a lot of fronts, obviously.  Particularly because it was AFC North football, but we don’t have a lot of time to pat ourselves on the back.”

James Conner

“We were a team thirsty for a win, simple and plain.  Like I say early in the week ‘less talk and more action’.”

Mason Rudolph

“Unbelievable team win.  A lot of leadership in the locker room and guys that know how to win and guys who have won a lot of games in their careers.  We stuck together all week even with the rough start.”

“We knew it was working so we were going to go back to it.  We weren’t going to stop doing it.  We were going to stop doing it when they stopped it, and they didn’t.”

Bud Dupree

“We needed a game like this, to put some good stuff on film.  We've been struggling the last couple of weeks.”

T.J. Watt

“Our backs were against the wall and we needed to win, and we needed a good performance defensively.  We got one in all three phases.”

Nick Vannet

“The team you saw tonight, I don’t think you would figure out we were 0-3.  We dominated on all sides of the ball tonight.”
