The Steelers defeated the Lions with Mitch Trubisky
Mitch Trubisky staked his request to replace the retiree Ben Roethlisbergerthrow for 160 yards and a touchdown when the Pittsburgh Steelers they beat Detroit 19-9 in the NFL Preseason Finals on Sunday afternoon.
Trubisky, who signed a two-year contract in March, was at his best at the end of the first half. Working the “two-minute” offense for the first time, Trubisky led the Steelers for 92 yards in six plays, capping the net drive with a 6-yard pass to steven sims which gave Pittsburgh (3-0) a 16-point half. Lead.
Although the coach mike tomlin can wait to announce who will finally get the nod in the three-way race, well, okay, the two-way race, between Trubisky and the rookie Kenny PickettTrubisky did little to lose his job in three appearances at the show. The former second overall pick completed 24 of 34 passes for 283 yards and two touchdowns without an interception in three games.
Pickett, the 20th overall pick in the draft, effectively completed 10 of 14 passes for 90 yards while playing with the second-team offense in the third and fourth quarters.
August was a solid and sometimes surprising month for Pickett, who plays a big role in the future of Pittsburgh. Trubisky, however, seems to be part of the present.
