CINCINNATI (93.7 the Fan) - Steelers players said Ben Roethlisberger told him there was too much time left on the clock as the Steelers got the ball back with 1:18 to go and three timeouts and eventually won 28-21.

"He said 'let's do it'", Antonio Brown explained about Ben Roethlisberger in the huddle to start the final drive.  "He let the group know we've been in this situation numerous times  It's time to do it.  Everyone believed, and we got it done."

"Just felt like a must win for us," said tailback James Conner.  "Going into the bye week, it was nice to get a victory."

JuJu Smith-Schuster believed he was targeted Sunday. "They were all making threats at me," Smith-Schuster said.  "He was dropping "F-bombs", everything.  Burfict was out there lying saying I was spitting on him, which I didn't."

"I dare you to come get me down," said tight end Vance McDonald.  "It's run.  It's really fun to break tackles."
