Steelers QB Kenny Pickett gets 1st 2 touchdown game of career

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Kenny Pickett has two passing touchdowns on Sunday night through just over two quarters against the Las Vegas Raiders. This marks the first time in Pickett’s career that he has two passing touchdowns in a game. You have to go back to 2021 for the last time a Steelers quarterback threw for two touchdowns in a game.

Sunday night marks Pickett’s 15th NFL start. Last season, Pickett started eight games and threw only seven touchdowns to nine interceptions. So far this season, Pickett has four passing touchdowns and three interceptions.

The Steelers currently lead the Raiders 23-7 midway through the third quarter. Both teams came into the game at 1-1. If the Steelers can pull off the win they would find themselves in the three-way tie for the lead in the AFC North with the Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens.
