The Steelers benched Mason Rudolph today in favor of Devlin Hodges, and Hodges made them look smart for doing so almost immediately, connecting on a crossing route with James Washington for a 79-yard touchdown.
Of course, while the throw was certainly on time and target, Washington did a large part of the work after the catch. He also gave us one of the more fun things a receiver can do: a tremendous open-field stiff arm, which in this case sent Bengals corner B.W. Webb sprawling.

It was almost a delayed reaction in this case, as the stiff arm sent Webb into a series of missteps before losing it as he tried to save his balance. There are few things better than watching a world class athlete stumble over like a normal person.
