Looks like Devlin "Duck" Hodges has "killed" the Pittsburgh Steelers after all.

Pittsburgh came into its game against the New York Jets holding onto the sixth seed in the AFC playoffs, but Hodges jeopardized its chances to hold onto that spot with his poor play at quarterback. Already in the first half of today's game, Hodges has thrown two interceptions - this coming off his four-interception performance against Buffalo last week.

Finally, head coach Mike Tomlin decided he'd had enough and pulled Hodges in favor of Mason Rudolph - who himself threw four interceptions in his most recent full appearance against the Cleveland Browns - the same game where he received the business end of his own helmet courtesy of Myles Garrett.

This will be a much-welcomed opportunity for redemption, especially when the Steelers need it.
