The Pittsburgh Steelers have found their QB of the future. He might just lead them into the postseason this year.
Kenny Pickett was the only quarterback selected in the first round of last April's draft. He was a local kid who was expected to take over for a legend. He didn't play until Week 4, and didn't start until Week 5. But he helped the Steelers get a W in Week 6, and has seemingly improved every week. His most recent feat? A fourth-quarter comeback victory over the division-rival Baltimore Ravens to keep Pittsburgh's faint playoff hopes alive. He's already won over one important person: head coach Mike Tomlin. But if he can manage to help the Steelers sneak into the postseason in his rookie year, it's fair to say that both his fanbase and his legend would increase exponentially.
Which brings us to today's quiz of the day. In NFL history, only 21 first-year QBs have helped their teams win seven or more games during their rookie seasons. Pickett would make this list with a win in Week 18. So with that in mind, how many can you name in five minutes?
