Mason Rudolph benched by the Steelers vs. winless Bengals

Garrett was suspended indefinitely for yanking off Rudolph's helmet and hitting him with it near the end of the Browns' 21-7 victory on November 14.

A tumultuous week for Pittsburgh Steelers' quarterback Mason Rudolph hit its climax on Sunday as he was benched due to poor performance in their 16-10 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. And it's possible considering what happened to the Steelers in the first half against the Bengals that he may not get to start the rematch. Rudolph was 8-for-16 with 85 yards and an interception when he was yanked. Hodges, who signed with Pittsburgh as an undrafted free agent in the off-season, finished five-of-11 for 118 yards and also threw a touchdown. Time will tell. But there's no doubt he's looked more comfortable than Rudolph under center when given the chance this year.

Pittsburgh Steelers' Mason Rudolph gives his take on the incident in which Myles Garrett struck the quarterback with his own helmet.
