Pressed in to action after Ben Roethlisberger and Michael Vick sustained injuries, Landry Jones completed 32 of 55 passes for 513 yards with a 3:4 touchdowns to interception ratio during the regular season.
Although hardly overwhelming in limited action, Jones did average 9.33 yards per pass attempt, which was best among all quarterbacks with at least 50 attempts this season, and his 88-yard touchdown pass to Martavis Bryant in Week 6 was the second-longest pass in the NFL all season (Blake Bortles, 90). With one year remaining on his contract, Jones should again serve as the back-up to Roethlisberger in 2016.
Landry Jones completed 2-of-5 passes for 11 yards with an interception Saturday in the Pittsburgh Steelers ' win over the Bengals.
Jones proved to be an adequate backup during the regular season, but struggled when called in to action after Ben Roethlisberger was carted off the field with a shoulder injury on the last play of the third quarter. Despite his poor play, Jones will likely be the back up to Big Ben in Week 19 against Denver.
Landry Jones replaced the injured Ben Roethlisberger (shoulder) in Saturday's game against the Bengals.
Roethlisberger is questionable to return after landing on his right shoulder when he was sacked late in the third quarter.
Landry Jones completed 1-of-4 passes for 34 yards and two interceptions in the Pittsburgh Steelers ' loss to the Seahawks on Sunday.
On the first play of the second quarter, Pittsburgh opted to run a fake field goal, with Jones tossing the ball to cornerback Jeremy Lane. Lane then returned the interception 54 yards to the Steelers' 24-yard line, ultimately leading to a Doug Baldwin touchdown catch from Russell Wilson. Jones returned for the final possession of the game, replacing Ben Roethlisberger (concussion), which ended with a pick by safety Kam Chancellor. If Big Ben cannot complete the league's concussion protocol, Jones would likely start in Week 13 against the Colts.
Following the Pittsburgh Steelers ' bye, Landry Jones (ankle) is not listed on the team's Week 12 injury report.
Nor is starting QB Ben Roethlisberger, which ensures that Jones will work in a backup capacity this weekend against the Seahawks.
