The Pittsburgh Steelers started off their season on a high note after they defeated the Cincinnati Bengals in overtime on the road. In Week 2, they had the chance to get a win at home against the New England Patriots. Instead, they lost 17-14, and quarterback Mitch Trubisky did not exactly inspire the fanbase at Acrisure Stadium with his performance, completing 21-of-33 pass attempts for 168 yards, one touchdown, and one interception.

Steelers: Mitch Trubisky's Week 2 throw chart will not make fans happy
Out of the 21 completions made by Trubisky, 15 of them were less than 10 yards. Five of those completed passes were behind the line of scrimmage. He attempted four passes longer than 20 yards, and only completed one of them.
Not the ideal playing chart for Trubisky.
In fact, former Steelers head coach and current CBS Sports analyst Bill Cowher said that Trubisky "is more worried about not making mistakes than he is about making plays."
Steelers' Mitchell Trubisky among players to receive game balls after overtime win over Bengals
Trubisky won his first start as the Steelers' quarterback"It's good to come in here, in a hostile environment and not blink," Tomlin said after the game. "Particularly the number of new guys -- whether they were rookies or new to us. I just gave all the new guys game balls. The guys that have been here before, there is a certain expectation. They know what the standard of expectation is, but I can't say enough about the new guys and how they came alongside us and fought as if they've been here. And that is just so critical in environments like this.
When asked about Trubisky's performance in his postgame press conference, head coach Mike Tomlin said that he needs to look at the tape, but that team collectively did not make enough plays, including the quarterback.
The team used the 20th overall selection in this year's NFL Draft on Pickett, who played college football at Pittsburgh. He was dubbed the most pro-ready prospect in the class, and he impressed the Steelers throughout the preseason. To be specific, Pickett 29-of-26 pass attempts for 261 yards and three touchdowns through all three of Pittsburgh's plays.
Pittsburgh will look to bounce back next week when they take on the rival Cleveland Browns. Steelers fans will certainly hope that Trubisky has a better showing.
