With the Pittsburgh Steelers offense sputtering against the Cincinnati Bengals, the Pittsburgh Steelers have pulled quarterback Mason Rudolph in favor of Devlin Hodges.

Rudolph was only 8 for 16 for 85 yards through the first drive of the third-quarter. With his only pass of the second half being into the ground well in front of the receiver after taking a sack in which he held onto the ball way too long, the Steelers have decided to make the change.

In his previous two games of NFL regular-season action, Hodges is 22 of 29 for 200 yards with one touchdown and one interception.

In his first drive for the Steelers, Hodges was two with two for 90 yards with a 79 yard touchdown pass to James Washington. There was one incompletion on the drive where Washington was called for an offensive pass interference.

The Steelers saw immediate results with Hodges as they quickly took a 10-7 lead with 11:10 remaining.
