The Hall of Fame game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Dallas Cowboys signaled the return of football, even if it was the lowest level of NFL gameplay we will see all season. 

PFF’s play-by-play grading and advanced statistics, which can be found in Premium Stats 2.0, give unique insights into the players who stood out in their battle to earn a spot on 53-man rosters. Here is a look at snap counts, PFF grades and notable advanced stats for every player who recorded at least 15 snaps in the 2021 Hall of Fame Game.

Steelers quarterbacks
Player Snaps played PFF grade
Dwayne Haskins 24 54.2
Mason Rudolph 18 81.5
Joshua Dobbs 17 57.5

No quarterback pushed the ball downfield with regularity for Pittsburgh, but the offense kept things particularly close to the vest with Dwayne Haskins. The former first-round pick recorded an average depth of target of just 4.0 yards downfield.

Mason Rudolph was effective from a clean pocket. He completed five of his seven attempts for 81 yards without pressure. It would have been six completions if not for a drop.
