The Steelers got a big win tonight against the Chargers. Here is a look at the five burning questions answered that were asked before the game.

The Steelers notched a win over the Chargers in Los Angeles and which was a huge relief for all of Steelers Nation. Devlin Hodges’ play didn’t quite burn it up, but he also didn’t lose the game. He won in his first start for the Steelers and he is the only quarterback to do that in the Tomlin era besides Ben Roethlisberger.

This game had a lot of aspects to be encouraged about and it was a much-needed victory for the morale of both the fans and players.

Here is a look at the five burning questions answered.

How will Devlin Hodges do in his first start?

Devlin Hodges had an okay showing. I expected him to play better, but he did play well enough to win. The Steelers had to play very conservatively with Hodges and when they didn’t, it ended in an interception.

What I did like about Devlin Hodges was that he was a good game manager. He caught the botched snap by Maurkice Pouncey to keep them in field goal range. He had a confident appearance to his play. He was able to take enough time off the clock to win and he got the ball to James Conner.
