The Pittsburgh Steelers turned to Kenny Pickett at halftime of Sunday's loss to the New York Jets, but Mike Tomlin isn't yet ready to anoint him the team's starting quarterback.
Pickett sparked the Steelers in the third quarter before throwing two interceptions in the final four minutes of the game. Mitch Trubisky has struggled to lead the offense in 3 1/2 games.
"I'm not going to talk extended as we sit here," Mike Tomlin said. "We did what we needed to do to put ourselves in position to win the game. We'll do it again. But I'd like to just keep it where we were in terms of what transpire here today. We'll deal with next week, next week."
Tomlin said he made the switch because "we needed a spark. We didn't do much in the first half, not enough offensively, and thought he could provide a spark for us."
