We were able to do it there and win a big game with Cleveland at home. We've got an even bigger game this week, and with Aaron Rodgers and their offense coming in, our crowd can play a big a part in this game as they've played in any game this year.

They’re well-coached. It can turn into a feeding frenzy pretty quick. It’s fun to take a peek at our defense whenever they’re on the field,” he added.'
