Ben Roethlisberger had his weekly briefing with the Pittsburgh media. Here's what the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback had to say.

(John Shumway, who had to be told Tuesday by Mike Tomlin what a contusion is) How's the hip?

Good.

(Shumway getting to the bottom of the issue) How does it feel and when did you hurt it?

It feels like a hip and I just landed on the ground. I'm glad it was rainy and muddy. I got a little bounce off the ground, but I'll be all right.

(Intrepid reporter Shumay now going for the jugular)You've landed on the ground like that before, any reason why this was different?

I have no idea. I landed on it, but I came back into the game, so that means I'm fine.

Did he hit you late?

I don't think so. I'm not going to complain about it. It was a physical play. He doesn't know if I'm going to run or throw it. He had his momentum going and it was hard to stop out there, so I'm not going to say anything about that.

The Browns have played a lot better since week 1. Can you talk about their improvement?

A lot of their improvement has come because of their quarterback change. Not to say anything against Charlie Frye, but Derek Anderson has done a great job. He's got them believing in what he's doing, he's making plays for them and the offense is doing some pretty good things. Their defense is still playing good.

They're kind of bending but not breaking and keep them in the game.

That's kind of the thing. They'll got at you, throw blitzes at you. They'll bend, let you get down into the red zone and kick field goals and not score touchdowns. I'm sure their philosophy is to keep it close and let the offense win it late.

Do you think they feel that they're playing with house money and they have nothing to lose in this game?

They're playing inspired right now. They have a lot of belief and confidence, as they should. They deserve it. It's going to be a good game.

Monday night you guys had four or five different things going for you. How do you regenerate that on Sunday with a team you've pounded already?

It's a first-place game. We know it's going to be tough. It's going to be a battle. We're going to come out pretty fired up as I'm sure they will also.

How much pain do you feel now?

I feel great right now. It's always painful talking to you guys, but I'm doing all right.

What about your practice schedule this week?

We'll see how that goes. We'll try to get healthy, get better. Whenever that is, I don't know.

What about you being the second-rated passer in the league and being among the league leaders?

I didn't know that until you just said it. To me it's about winning football games. Whether that's by throwing no touchdown passes or throwing five, it doesn't matter to me. As long as we win the football game, that's all that matters to me.

You guys have now presented that balance that every offense cherishes. They shut down the run and you guys were still able to move the ball.

That's key for us. When we can't run the ball, we're able to throw it. If we can't throw the ball, we're able to run it We feel if we can be balanced and do that, we're just as dangerous. You can't key in on one thing.

You didn't have great success running the other night, but you could still throw it. Why was that?

I think they knew we were going to go out and run the ball. They were keyed on the run and our line still did a good job. We pushed at it. We didn't get the big run, Willie (Parker) didn't break any. But we grinded at it. We need to improve in the running game and I'm sure Bruce (Arians) and the running backs and line would say that. It will be there. We're not worried about the running game right now.

But there were times in the past when the running game wasn't there and it was still tough to throw. How were you able to overcome that?

I don't know, I guess it just worked for us. The line did a good job in pass protection, picking up the blitzes. And the receivers got open. Even when they weren't open, they made plays for me.

Was it a case of even if they weren't open, you were throwing it to them, just to show it?

We're so good at running the ball, we're going to keep doing. With the running backs that we have and the line that we have, at any particular moment we could pop one. So we're going to continue to grind and do what we do.

How do you feel about Indianapolis and New England getting all the publicity this season?

That's great, they deserve it. They're the best football teams in the AFC.

Santonio (Holmes) said it meant a lot that he had two guys on him and you still threw it to him?

He's one of those guys that he's going to make a play for you. It doesn't matter if there's one guy on him or two guys, you put it up there to him and at minimum, he's going to break it up. Even if it's an offensive pass interference, he's going to save you the pick.

(Shumway, jumping into the fray again) What's it like when every time you have a bump or bruise, it's big news?

It's normal. The quarterback of the football team is going to get that. I'll be all right. I came back into the game, so it shouldn't even be an issue.

Do you feel like sometime the offensive line doesn't know where you're going when you're scrambling?

That's why you've got to give them more credit than they're getting. They don't know where I'm going. They don't know if I've already crossed the line of scrimmage and now they can go downfield. There are so many things people overlook when I scramble. That's why I give them all the credit. They have to sustain blocks for a long time when I'm out scrambling around, making plays. They're not holding. They're doing a great job.
