Tomlin mum on Steelers' starter after Rudolph benched


Tomlin did hint that he's already decided which pivot will start for the Steelers in a divisional rematch with the Browns.

Could this be the end of the Mason Rudolph era in Pittsburgh?

We'll see how the rest of the afternoon goes.

"Just felt like our offense needed a spark", Tomlin told reporters after Pittsburgh sealed a 16-10 comeback win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.

Devlin Hodges entered the game to play QB for the Steelers, and the move paid immediate dividends: Hodges was 2-for-2 passing with a touchdown in his first series on the field.

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. Tomlin said with a laugh and an eye roll. The Steelers prevailed 16-10 thanks to a pair of Chris Boswell field goals in the fourth quarter, moving into position for the AFC's final wild-card spot at 6-5.

During the Browns-Steelers Week 11 contest, Rudolph threw four interceptions as Cleveland won 21-7.

"I may have it as I stand here right now, but I'm just not going to share it with you guys", he said.
