It's Duck season in Pittsburgh, again.
Three plays after replacing Mason Rudolph, Steelers backup quarterback Devlin Hodges connected with receiver James Washington on a 79-yard touchdown pass. The score gave the Steelers a 10-7 lead over the Bengals, who are trying to win their first game of the season.
Rudolph went 8-of-16 for 85 yards with an interception in a little over two quarters of work. Hodges, an undrafted rookie out of Samford, hasn't played since Week 5, when he helped lead the Steelers to a road victory over the Chargers.
The Steelers are trying to keep pace with the field in the AFC wild card race. Pittsburgh is 5-5 and is currently the eighth place team in the AFC standings.
