OG David DeCastro
On how the offense did in the first half:
"We're a work in progress. I think we did some good things on the second drive and we got the ball moving. We didn't get it started on the first three-and-out but it happens sometimes. There's more than just one drive to a game, so it's a good test to overcome a little adversity."

On what it means to see a Steeler get in the Hall of Fame and be a part of this game:
"Especially Jerome (Bettis), obviously what he's done and his storied career. It's awesome to be here and be a part of this game. And to see him with a big smile on his face we're just trying to get the W for him."

On how the defense performed in the first half:
"I felt like we're setting a tone of being a physical defense. That's what we want to see, see how the night goes and just have fun."

"It's just beautiful to be a part of it. That's part of the NFL history, being a Hall of Famer is awesome and I feel that we can share that with him. We all know what he did in his career and it's an awesome thing."
