GLENDALE, Az. – Maybe he wasn't the most spectacular player in a Pittsburgh uniform today in the 23-17 win over the Cardinals, but this was a game where the Steelers were going to need plays from their quarterback. In virtually every situation, Devlin Hodges delivered.
Hodges completed 16-of-19 (84.2 percent) for 152 yards, with one touchdown, no interceptions, and a rating of 117.5. Hodges also scrambled five times for 34 yards. The Steelers had scoring drives of 77, 73, and 66 yards, and for an offense to move that far down the field and then score points requires solid play from the quarterback.
Hodges is the Steelers Digest Player of the Week.
Also considered were Diontae Johnson, who caught six passes for 60 yards and a touchdown, he rushed once for 16 yards, and he returned a punt 85 yards for another touchdown; Joe Haden, who had four tackles and two interceptions, including the one that iced the outcome; T.J. Watt, who had two tackles and an interception in the end zone; Bud Dupree, who had five tackles, including three for loss, and a sack; Cam Heyward, who had three tackles and a sack; and Mark Barron, who had seven tackles and a sack.
