Fox News Flash top headlines for Nov. 27 are here. Check out what's clicking on Foxnews.com The Pittsburgh Steelers will start Devlin Hodges, who made waves earlier this season with his outspoken support of President Trump, at quarterback Sunday as they take on the Cleveland Browns, more than two weeks after a helmet-swinging melee that shook the NFL, coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday. It will be Hodges' second career start. He started earlier this season for the injured Mason Rudolph in Week 6 against the Los Angeles Chargers on the road.
A Pittsburgh Steelers logo with one of the hypocycloids changed to a Star of David, on a banner at Heinz Field for Sunday's game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cleveland Browns. Pittsburgh's professional sports franchises honored the victims of Saturday's deadly mass shooting at a synagogue with a moment of silence and plans for a blood drive and donation collection. The Steelers observed a moment of silence before Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns at Heinz Field, which is approximately seven miles west of the Tree of Life Synagogue, where a gunman killed eight men and three women during services. In a tribute to the victims, a tweak to the Steelers' distinctive logo changed a yellow shape into a Star of David and added the words "Stronger than hate." The image appeared on social media Saturday and at least one child in the stands wore that logo as a patch on his jersey.
With free agency already three weeks old, the Pittsburgh Steelers have their eyes set on the 2017 NFL Draft. After reaching the AFC Championship Game, the team is looking to add a piece that can help them get over the hump and back in the Super Bowl for the first time since 2011. Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett is expected to be the first overall selection, but there are a lot of potential scenarios after the Cleveland Browns use their pick. That means the Steelers will be prepared for multiple possibilities when they make their first-round pick at No.30, and various mock drafts have Pittsburgh looking at several different players. There does seem to be one consistent theme when it comes to Pittsburgh and the draft.
On the surface, the "Sunday Night Football" game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Detroit Lions appears to be one of the best matchups of Week 8. Both teams made the postseason a year ago and they are in the thick of the 2017 playoff race. Ben Roethlisberger is a two-time Super Bowl winner, and Matthew Stafford is arguably one of the NFL's 10 best signal callers. Sure, Pittsburgh is the better team with two more wins and a lead in their division, but Detroit is at home. The Lions are only 2.5-point underdogs, per the betting odds at OddsShark.
