RB Kareem Hunt (10.21.20)

RB Kareem Hunt:

On what he saw in the running game when watching film from the Steelers game, knowing the Steelers have a strong front: 

“Saw a team that came ready to play and some things we definitely need to work on as a whole. That is all.”

On his confidence that the Browns can look like the No. 1 rushing offense again this week: 

“Very confident. We are going to get back to work and just keep getting better.”

On if he is eager to have a breakout performance in the run game, including a 100-yard game: 

“I guess. I would love it, but I am here for the wins and losses. My biggest thing is I want to win.”

On how important it is for the Browns to bounce back this week: 

“It is definitely important. We have to go back and fix some things and get ready to come out the next game. The most important is the next one.”

On if he feels any need to provide encouragement to QB Baker Mayfield after the loss: 

“We have Baker’s back. Baker is an awesome quarterback and awesome teammate. Definitely going to have his back no matter what.”

On if he felt the Browns came ready to play on Sunday or if the team came out flat: 

“Could say a bunch of things, but we have moved on. We are ready for the next game.”

On the running game against the Steelers and if the lack of production was the result of the Steelers being one of the best run defenses in the league: 

“Most definitely. They have a great defense, and we knew that. They came ready to play. They did a good job up front. Those guys on the defensive side on the ball over there.”

On if he talked with RB Nick Chubb after the Steelers game: 

“We definitely talked, but that is between me and Nick.”

On dealing with the outside noise following Sunday’s loss and the current mood in the building: 

“We are still in a great spot. We are 4-2. We never like losing, but we have to just come out and get better and play the next game. Do not let it keep going. Ready to get back on track.”

On going down early in the Steelers game and how that impacted the run game was frustrating: 

“I guess so. Hats off to them. They did a great job defensively.”

On if the Bengals defense looks different than it has in past years, particularly given playing time for Bengals DT Geno Atkins and DE Carlos Dunlap: 

“I guess so. I just know those guys have been playing well the last couple of weeks. We have to come ready to play.”

On how much he has talked with Chubb since the injury: 

“Talked to him right after the game. I talk to him all the time. Nick is a great teammate and a great person. He watched it.”

On how he is feeling physically: 

“I will be ready to go Sunday.”
