Steelers won’t commit to Devlin Hodges as Week 16 starting QB

Despite their narrow loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday night, the Pittsburgh Steelers are in playoff positioning.

Pittsburgh will earn a playoff spot if the team is able to win out over the final two games of the season. It can also make the playoffs with a win in one of its final two games and a Titans loss.

However, we have no idea who will be under center for the Steelers when they take on the New York Jets in Week 16.

Head coach Mike Tomlin would not commit to Devlin Hodges as the team’s starting quarterback after he threw four interceptions in a miserable overall performance Sunday evening.

The undrafted rookie free agent had won each of his first three NFL starts after replacing an ineffective Mason Rudolph under center. Sunday’s outing puts his status in question moving forward.

Immediately prior to throwing a game-ending interception late in the fourth quarter, Hodges ignored Tomlin’s call for him to spike the ball.

Whether that plays a role in Tomlin’s decision-making process heading into Week 16 remains to be seen.
