(GSM) — Fans of the Pittsburgh Steelers travel well, and it was evident during the matchup against the LA Chargers Sunday.
There was an overabundance of “Terrible Towels” during Sunday night’s game at Dignity Health Sports Park to watch the Steelers achieve their second win of the season in a 24-17 victory on the road.
Quarterback Devlin “Duck” Hodges led the Steelers by completing 15-20 passes for 132 YDS, 1 TD, and only 1 interception. The undrafted QB was signed during the 2019 season after the team traded Joshua Dobbs to the Jaguars and his number was called to lead following the concussion suffered by Mason Rudolph.
In his post-game press conference, Hodges said of the strong presence of Steeler fans, “Honestly, not too surprised. That’s something that we kind of anticipated happening. We travel with fans so well. I mean, just pregame warmups and you could tell this was going to be like a home game.”

This Rick-Roll attempt by the Chargers Sunday night with “Renegade” backfired as it fired the large contingent #Steelers fans up more. Got to think these things through better. lol Too funny! @muldowney pic.twitter.com/1Ydm4o1ndd

Looks like the entire stadium was Steelers fans or at least the Steelers side was full while the Chargers side looked pretty bare…♂️ pic.twitter.com/dFQw6eVpPY
