But for Pittsburgh, it was a two-half story, as the team scored four out of five goals in the first two quarters. Then the third quarter began with three three-pointers. While the clearance led to a field goal, there was nothing else on offense until it was effectively too late.

“He’s getting better in every way guys, just like George Pickens getting better,” head coach Mike Tomlin said at his press conference on Tuesday. “I’m not going to comb this every week. It’s moving in the direction we’d like it to go.

“Of course, can he move faster? Absolutely. I don’t think anyone is patient, including Kenny. This is not the work of a patient person. You work while you wait. And that’s what he and we do. But overall he does a good job.”

The Steelers posted a 2-4 record in Pickett’s six starts. He completed 65.4 percent of his passes for 1,426 yards with three touchdowns and eight interceptions.
