Before the game kicks off, the Steelers would like you to know what Steelers Nation means to them.

Steelers President Art Rooney II:"Our fans are the best. There is no question about it. When you travel around to the games you see them showing up in different parts of the country, different stadiums, as well as Heinz Field. We are very lucky to have the kind of fans we have."

Wide receiver Antonio Brown:
"They mean everything. They give us support, encouragement. They are the reason why we do it. It's an honor and privilege to have fans like Steelers Nation because they always support us."

Coach Mike Tomlin:
"Steelers fans are everything. They motivate us, they inspire us. We appreciate the support they give us on the field and off the field. It's a way of life. It's beyond support, it's a way of life and we feel it daily."

Tight end Heath Miller:
"They are great. Our fans are the best in the NFL. It's always very apparent when we are at an away stadium. They are always there no matter how big the game is, how well the other team is doing. Steelers' fans are always there to support us."

Safety Mike Mitchell:"They are the best fans in the world, especially when they are filling up Heinz Field and being loud. When 'Renegade' comes on that is the best part of it."

Safety Will Allen:
"Ever since I came to the Steelers I have been embraced and it's been great. Steelers fans are wonderful. You appreciate them. They were in Seattle. That is thousands of miles away. They were great at the last home game and we are going to need them again this week."

Kicker Chris Boswell:
"They motivate us on the field with all of the momentum swings in the game. It helps us out a lot. They are always on their feet cheering."

Fullback Will Johnson:
"They are our 12th man, they keep us going, especially when 'Renegade' gets going. It gives me goose bumps and I know they love it. It's special and I know they love to be a part of it."
