Trevor Siemian Manages Victory In Week 18

Sunday, January 7, 8:00 PM

New York Jets quarterback Trevor Siemian completed eight of his 20 pass attempts for 70 scoreless yards in a 17-3 victory over the New England Patriots. He added one rushing yard on two carries. The snowy weather conditions in Foxborough did no favors for either team's passing attack as Siemian and Patriots signal-caller Bailey Zappe combined for just 158 yards through the air. Nonetheless, Siemian avoided turning the ball over and led New York on four scoring drives. The 32-year-old will conclude the campaign going 2-1 as a starter and will hope to reprise a role as a backup next season.

Steelers Have "Full Faith" In Kenny Pickett

Thursday, February 29, 6:14 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Omar Khan said that he has "full faith" in quarterback Kenny Pickett. Pickett, a former first-round pick, hasn't looked good in his first two NFL seasons, but lacking other options on their current roster, the Steelers are crossing their fingers that the 25-year-old can make improvements this offseason and earn the starting gig this summer in training camp. It doesn't mean that they won't look to re-sign Mason Rudolph or bring in another veteran in free agency to push Pickett for the starting gig, though. In 25 games (24 starts) since his rookie season in 2022, Pickett has completed only 62.6% of his pass attempts for 4,474 yards, 13 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. Not only was Pickett hurt in 2023, but he was also benched in favor of Rudolph late in the year. Unless he makes a drastic improvement in Year 3, Pickett might not be long for Pittsburgh.
