Steeler Nation rose to its feet as Kenny Pickett ran onto the field to make his preseason debut this Saturday night.
Pickett made his NFL preseason debut on the first drive of the second half of Saturday night's Steelers-Seahawks exhibition.
Before he took the snap, Steeler Nation rose to its feet to give the rookie a standing ovation. Plus, the terrible towels were out in full force.
How did Kenny Pickett respond? By leading the Steelers on a touchdown drive and converting a two-point conversion.
An impressive start from the rookie. He has a bright career ahead.
"Nice @kennypickett10. Very nice," wrote Louis Riddick.
"Kenny Pickett went 5/5 for 33 yards and a TD on his first (preseason) NFL drive," said Brooke Pryor.
"KENNY PICKETT TO JAYLEN WARREN TOUCHDOWN!" wrote Steeler Nation.
What a start from the rookie. Catch him in action on NFL Network.
