Antoine Bethea: Oh yeah, we love playing on the turf. We can fly around on the turf. But then again, we're going to be playing in a hostile environment, so the main thing we have to do is bring the energy and intensity that we played with last week.
ET: This week you're facing a team with a little more balance than the Chiefs with Jamal Lewis, Steve McNair, and a couple good receivers; what challenge does that create for you and what are you expecting to see this week?
AB: Well, we're going into the game with the same concept as last week. Jamal Lewis is a good running back so we feel as though they will try to do the same thing…establish the run. Our main goal is to stop the run and if we do that, they have some good receivers, but I think we'll be able to handle ourselves.

AB: Well, I think it'll be hard to take him out of the game completely. Like
you said, he's a good tight end so I think he's going to get his catches. But
again, our main thing is when he catches the ball, tackle him. We have to know
Steve McNair's going to be looking towards him, so sometimes we might have to
lean a little more toward his side depending on what type of situation it is in
ET: What have you seen on film that has impressed you about their receivers -- Derrick Mason and Mark Clayton?
AB: They're very solid receivers. They catch the ball -- you rarely see them drop any balls -- they run good routes and the most important thing is they have a lot of yards after the catch. Our main thing is even if they do catch the ball, we have to get them down so we can live to see another down.
ET: Have any of the guys who have played games in Baltimore before been sharing any tips with you about that environment and their players since this is your rookie season and first time there?
AB: They haven't been saying much, but everybody pretty much knows the players that they have on their team. They have some really good players and some playmakers, so our main goal is just to go in there and be focused to do what we have to do.
ET: Is there anything else you'd like to say to the fans?
AB: Don't forget about the Colts, we're still in it to win it.
