Devin Bush and Devlin Hodges lead Steelers to 24-17 win over Chargers – The Washington Post

The word is success when undrafted rookie Devlin Hodges made his first NFL start for Pittsburgh after the injuries to other quarterbacks,  Ben Roethlisberger and Mason Rudolph.

James Conner scored two touchdowns, Devin Bush recovered a pair of turnovers and Devlin Hodges won his first NFL start as the Pittsburgh Steelers held off the Los Angeles Chargers 24-17 on Sunday night.

Conner had his first game with both a rushing and receiving touchdown and accounted for 119 scrimmage yards (41 rushing, 78 receiving).

Bush forced turnovers on the Chargers second and third drives. The rookie linebacker scored his first NFL touchdown when he scooped up a backward pass from Philip Rivers that Melvin Gordon was unable to handle and went 9 yards to give the Steelers a 7-0 lead

Bush got his second turnover four plays later when he intercepted a Rivers’ pass that was deflected by defensive end Tyson Alualu at the line of scrimmage. That would lead to Conner’s first TD.

The Chargers (2-4) trailed 24-0 after three quarters but rallied to get within seven on a Chase McLaughlin field goal and two TD passes from Rivers to Hunter Henry.

After Henry’s 11-yard TD catch made it 24-17, Los Angeles tried an onside kick with 1:28 remaining but it was recovered by Steelers. The Chargers forced a three-and-out and got the ball at the 1 after a punt, but Rivers was picked off by Cameron Sutton to preserve the Steelers win to improve to 2-4.

Rivers was 26 of 44 for300 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions while Henry, who missed the past four games due to a knee injury, had eight receptions for 100 yards.

Conner gave the Steelers a 14-0 lead with 4:39 remaining in the first quarter with a 12-yard run around left end on a nice block from left tackle Alejandro Villanueva.

Conner put Pittsburgh up by three touchdowns with 6:34 remaining in the second when he caught a short pass from Hodges and went 26 yards up the right sideline after Chargers linebacker Jatavis Brown was unable to tackle the third-year running back at the 25.

Los Angeles didn’t get on the board until one minute into the fourth quarter on Chase McLaughlin’s 38-yard field goal. Rivers ended the offense’s seven-quarter drought without a touchdown when he found Hunter Henry in the back of the end zone from 5 yards out with 7:13 remaining.

5 foods you should always buy frozen instead of fresh

1. Spinach

“Frozen spinach is the gem of the freezer section, it is so versatile and much cheaper than fresh,”

2. Chopped onions

Buying chopped onions frozen saves time and tears. “They’re a double-time saver because first, you’re not chopping the onions, and second, they’re already softened,”

3. Stir-fry blend

Speaking of saving time, buying a pre-chopped frozen blend will save you tons of it.

4. Edamame

It’s an easy, healthy snack her toddler loves too. “Just 30 seconds in the microwave and it’s ready,” she says. Plant-based protein FTW!

5. Zucchini or sweet potato noodles

What a time to be alive: zucchini noodles and sweet potato noodles can be found in the frozen section in almost all grocery stores.

October Full Moon 2019: Enormous, Orange Full Hunter’s Moon to Appear in Night Sky

The Full Hunter’s Moon may appear larger and more orange than a normal full moon due to the so-called moon illusion.

Full moons occur roughly every once a month when the Earth is positioned directly between the sun and the moon. In these instances, it is fully illuminated, appearing like a perfect circle.

The October full moon will reach its peak on Sunday, October 13, at 5:08 p.m. EDT, although it will appear full to the naked eye for about a day on either side of this date, according to The Old Farmer’s Almanac.

The moon will only be really visible after sunset, however, and it will set close to sunrise the next day. (On that date, sunset in New York, for example, occurs at around 6:20 p.m.) In fact, the night of October 13 and 14 is the only one of the month in which the moon will remain in the sky from sunrise to sunset.

This Full Hunter’s Moon is particularly intriguing because it may appear larger and more orange than a normal full moon due to the fact that it rises around sunset.
