It’s officially the Kenny Pickett show in Pittsburgh.
After replacing Mitch Trubisky as the starting quarterback in the second half of the game vs Jets, the team will move forward with the first round pick as their starting quarterback.
The news was first reported by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport:
Mike Tomlin explained his decision after the game, saying the team needed a “spark.” Pickett went 10 of 13 for 120 yards with two rushing touchdowns and three interceptions. The Steelers fell to the Jets, 24-20 but will move forward with Pickett as the starter.
