WATCH: Mason Rudolph throws interception on first attempt of game against Dolphins

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

The return of Mason Rudolph to the Pittsburgh Steelers lineup isn’t going well on Monday night against the Miami Dolphins.

On his first passing attempt of the game, Rudolph threw a brutal interception to Xavien Howard, who was smothering JuJu Smith-Schuster in coverage.

Rudolph never should have let that pass leave his hand.

Making him pay for the mistake, Ryan Fitzpatrick threw a touchdown pass to Alert Wilson to put the Dolphins up 7-0 early in Pittsburgh.

That’s a bad way to start the game for a young quarterback going against an awful team like Miami.
