After West Coast win, Steelers ride depth, momentum into bye

PITTSBURGH (AP) Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin declined to discuss whom he gave the game ball to after watching his undermanned club potentially resurrect its season with a 24-17 victory over the Los Angeles Chargers.

"I keep that business between us," Tomlin said.

Considering what his team did Sunday night against the Chargers, maybe Tomlin should have cut the ball into 53 equal pieces. Rookie quarterback Devlin Hodges was efficient, if not spectacular, while filling in for injured Mason Rudolph. Running back James Conner rolled up 119 total yards and two touchdowns. Rookie backup Benny Snell Jr. ran for 75 yards, most of them coming in the second half after Conner left with a quad injury. The defense forced three more turnovers, two of which ended up in the hands of linebacker Devin Bush.
