The Steelers liked what they saw from their rookie quarterback last week, so they see no reason to change.
“He’s performed well in hostile environments but he doesn’t have a big sample size,” Tomlin said.
Hodges played acceptably well last week against the Browns, completing 14-of-21 passes for 212 yards, with a touchdown and an interception.
More importantly, the Steelers won with him on the field, moving to 7-5 and staying in the thick of the AFC wild card race.
While former third-round pick Mason Rudolph might have entered camp as the pedigreed choice, Hodges has put better results on the field, so for now he’s the guy.
