Included below are select quotes from interviews with the following Browns players during today’s media availability:


  • RB Kareem Hunt
  • LB Mack Wilson


RB Kareem Hunt:

On how disappointing the loss was yesterday:

“It is very disappointing, but we have no choice now. We have to move on, look forward to next week’s game and get a win. Get back on track.”


On if he felt confident the Browns offense would continue to move the ball when the team led 10-0:

“Yeah, definitely. Everybody was feeling like we should run away with this game and feel like we can move the ball and everything.”


On if he felt the momentum switching in the second quarter:

“A little bit but not really. Good and bad things happened during the game. We got to stay level minded. You can’t ever get too high or too low.”


On if he wonders why he did not have any rushing attempts in the second half:

“You know me, I just go with the flow. Whatever is called, I am going to rock with it. I am a team player. It does not matter. Whenever my number is called, I am going to go out there and try to make a play.”


LB Mack Wilson:

On the Steelers offense converting third downs after being pinned at the 1-yard line:

“We just went out and we were just telling each other, ‘We are going to try our best to keep them down here and try to flip the field for the offense to be able to come back and try to score.’ Obviously, we did not do that. It is football. We just tried our best to continue to keep fighting and try to see what we could get done.”


On if he felt the momentum of the game shifting in the second quarter:

“No, not really. I feel like (Head) Coach Freddie (Kitchens) always talks about, we control how the game goes. I do not really base it off momentum because at the end of the day, we all have to execute on both sides of the field. I feel like we did a good job defensively and offensively, as well. We just did not make plays when we needed to make plays.”


On if the Browns defense could have done a better job pressuring Steelers QB Devlin Hodges, particularly given his limited NFL experience:

“I feel like we played pretty good. We just did not take advantage of our opportunities. We did not make plays on the football. Those things can be fixable. We are just going to go back to work this week and just focus on being 1-0 this week.”


On how poised Hodges looked during the game:

“He played pretty good. He threw a few balls up and his receivers were able to make plays. We just have to make those plays. We have to knock the ball out and try our best to do whatever we can to live to play another down.”
