Devlin Hodges replaces Mason Rudolph, finds James Washington for 79-yard TD

During Week 12, the Pittsburgh Steelers QB was benched after struggling against the Cincinnati Bengals, which brought in Devlin Hodges who threw for more yards in less attempts as well as a touchdown that would prove to be the game victor.

We'll see how the rest of the afternoon goes. Hodges, who signed with Pittsburgh as an undrafted free agent in the off-season, finished five-of-11 for 118 yards and also threw a touchdown.

A chaotic week led up to this performance from Rudolph, though he claimed it had no influence over his performance. "And this was just purely - not moving the ball up and down the field".

It was reported Thursday that Garrett alleged during his appeal hearing that Rudolph used a slur just prior to the fight at the end of the Browns' Week 10 win over the Steelers. But it is what it is. "I think I've moved on".

As of now, the National Football League has stated that it has found "no evidence" of Garrett's allegation.

That Tomlin turned to Hodges over Rudolph is telling of how the longtime head coach feels about the quarterback room at the moment.
