(on the differences between the two halves)

In the second half we just started playing better. It's tough. You can't spot a really good team 27 points, but definitely we just started playing better. We started executing better and defense started helping us out and we got the ball rolling.

(on if he was to shift momentum with his touchdown)

I think we were just needing a big play. I think that fast track, that score kind of gave us some boost. You know, that's what we needed.

(on if a loss like this is an opportunity to improve)

Most definitely, regardless if we were winning every game. If we would have won today? There's still something always to improve on. Again, a loss, it kind of magnifies what we didn't do well, so I think moving forward, I think there's a lot to kind of help us, to be honest. You know, when you're winning, sometimes you sweep a lot of stuff under the rug. A lot of stuff goes unnoticed because you're winning. I think we came out, we played better in the second half. We've just got to play better the whole game, be more consistent.

(on if the offense does more to help the team win when the defense is struggling)

We try to focus on us, and we try to let them do them. We don't try to get caught up in all of that. I mean, we try to do our job whenever we're on the field. They got to play just like us, so we got to hold our own just like they've got to hold their own. We don't get caught up in offense defense. Whenever we are out there, we're expect to score every drive. We're that confident in our offense that we can score every drive that we play. That's our mindset. It's not about that defense stuff.

(on if today's game was a measuring stick between the teams and how the Titans compare to the Steelers)

I mean, we're a play away. We're a play away. In this league, you've just got to keep playing. You've got to keep fighting. Regardless of the game, you don't know who is going to win. Regardless of what the stats say, 5-0, 0-5. It don't matter. We're in the NFL. These guys are really good. We're good. It's the competitive edge, the details that's going to show up every time and give the winning edge. Comparing? I think we're close. I think we've got to clean up some stuff of course, but it's still early in the year. We don't try to get caught up into 5-0 and all that stuff, like undefeated. We're just trying to win. 1-0 every week, you know. That's my mindset. That's our mindset, and today we fell short but it was a play away. That's a really good team, like I said. You cannot spot a good team 27 points and expect to win. This is not a video game, you know? I think we're OK. We're going to go back and we're going to get to work. Hammer out the details and we're going to keep moving forward.
