BALTIMORE -- The Pittsburgh Steelers let more than Javorius Allen, Ryan Mallett and the Baltimore Ravens go on Sunday.
Their 20-17 loss at M&T Bank Stadiumcombined with the New York Jets' upset of the New England Patriots took away Pittsburgh's control of its postseason fate. They head into their Week 17 1 p.m. road kickoff against the Cleveland Browns needing both a win and a Jets loss to the Buffalo Bills at Ralph Wilson Stadium.
Here's how the Steelers reacted to Sunday's greater loss:
Ben Roethlisberger, QB
"We don't have that right now. Like I said, we shot ourselves in the foot today. It's our fault, it's my fault. The only thing we can do now is play, win, watch and hope."
DeAngelo Williams, RB
"We got to come out and we got to first and foremost we got to win next week. We got the Cleveland Browns going into Cleveland, another hostile environment, AFC North foe. So we got to come in, we got to execute our game plan and we got to win that game first and foremost and let the chips fall where they may."
"We'll see how today finishes, and we'll go from there. That's all we can do."
Mike Mitchell, FS
"We got a job to do. We got to be professionals. We still may have a chance in it so we got to handle our next game."
Arthur Moats, OLB
"It's a bad position to be in where you're worried about somebody else, but we just got to take care of what we got to take care of. We got to beat Cleveland. So if it works out in our favor, great. If not, we still got to win."
Cameron Heyward, DE
"All we can do is tune everything out and go play a game. It sucks, but we made our bed for us. It's hard to look outside and say do this for us. I just hope we get another chance, but it disturbs me as a leader of this team. I didn't get the job done."
