Hopefully, this will be the emergence of either Rudolph or Haskins. The Lions are coming off their bye - but they're in the 'Burgh today. Temps in the mid-30's, with a change of rain/snow mix by end of game.

Good football weather. We're coming into RB season. Let's go, Najee...

Rudolph better get the job done. Winning this game is why he's on the roster.

Strange thought, but I almost feel like this helps the other players out of the potential trap, if that makes sense. They need to rally around Rudolph, and that will hopefully help shake the emotional low of facing an 0-8 team.

It certainly levels the playing field considerably talent-wise. But the Steelers know they have to compensate for no Ben. 

Play like it's 1976 and Mike Kruczek is your QB today, men.

Wow. Very calm and cool play by Rudolph to not only handle that high snap, but also hit the open man for a first down.

Interference!

Not a great pass, but I like the willingness to take a shot.

O=line is bullying Detroit right now. Nice, patient but intense running by Najee.

That was an ugly pass. Better safe than sorry, I guess... but a little touch, and that's 6.

Very smooth. Excellent execution, Steelers making the Lions look like an 0-8 team.

Now, let's see equal execution by the defense. Give them NOTHING.

Wow, give-up play on that 3rd down draw. Weak.

Great job, defense!

Shoot. 3rd down pass sailed on him. Receiver was open, that was there. Missed opportunity.

Wow, another 3rd down by Detroit run comes up short. Shocked by the conservative play call.

Punt time.

I know!  Laugh I'll take it. 

Pretty sad how remarkable it actually is to see him make a play like that.

Nice, confident throw by Rudolph for a first down. He looks pretty sharp and comfortable so far.
