Pittsburgh Steelers fans have finally gotten what they want, and it only took until week 4.
On Sunday, the Steelers opted to bench Mitch Trubisky and put first-round rookie Kenny Pickett into the game.
Chicago declined Trubisky’s fifth-year option after 2020, which allowed him to become an unrestricted free agent last offseason. The Bills signed him to a one-year contract last year and he signed a two-year deal with the Steelers this past offseason.
