No Ben Roethlisberger? No problem. At least for one drive against the Lions.

Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph, starting today because Roethlisberger has COVID-19, marched the offense down the field on the first drive of the game and finished it with a touchdown pass to James Washington.

Rudolph went 4-for-5 for 30 yards on the opening drive, Najee Harris ran five times for 24 yards, and the Steelers picked up 29 yards on a pass interference penalty.

The Lions are the NFL’s only winless team, and they’re not exactly looking like much of a challenge for the Steelers today. Even a Steelers team led by its backup quarterback.
