Steelers rookie Kenny Pickett made a statement Saturday night in the team’s quarterback league.

Pickett played all through the second half, completing 13 of 15 passes for 95 yards, with two touchdowns and no interceptions, including the game-winning touchdown pass with four seconds left when the Steelers won 32-25.

“It was very special,” Pickett said via “The whole evening was special. I’ve been here so long, but I’ve never been able to go to a Steelers game, and the first one I have as an NFL player, to end up in that stadium like that with a lot of family and friends there was amazing.”

The other two quarterbacks in the Steelers’ three-man league, Mitch Trubisky and Mason Rudolph, also played well. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said after the game that he was pleased with how all three of his quarterbacks played. But above all, he had to be happy with Pickett, who looked just like the first lap he was.
