The Devlin Hodges Era might be over for the Pittsburgh Steelers. The undrafted rookie has been replaced by Mason Rudolph.
Hodges completed 7-of-9 passes in the first quarter-plus against the New York Jets, but the two incompletions were actually caught by the other team. His two interceptions are a major reason why Pittsburgh is down 10-0.
Rudolph came in and has completed 2-of-4 passes for 17 yards thus far.

Rudolph had been Pittsburgh’s primary starter this season, but was replaced by Hodges during a win over the Cincinnati Bengals last month. Since then, Rudolph has sat the bench behind the “Duck Caller.”
Now, he’ll be counted on to try and lead a comeback as the Steelers look to move to 9-6 and keep pace with the Tennessee Titans for an AFC playoff berth.
