The Pittsburgh Steelers are aiming for back-to-back wins when they take on the short-handed Seattle Seahawks at Heinz Field on Sunday night.
Perhaps the biggest surprise for this game is the fact that NBC opted to keep it in the primetime slot instead of flexing in a far more interesting contest.
When the schedule came out in May, this at least looked like a potentially enticing contest before Ben Roethlisberger showed he’s finished as a top level quarterback and Russell Wilson hurt his finger.
Pittsburgh (2-3) at least had a nice bounce back effort against Denver last week and should be abelt to move the ball on Seattle’s leaky defence through running back Najee Harris.
Harris has fallen right into the workhorse role with the Steelers averaging over 21 touches and 100 yards per game and should be able to find the end zone here.
Their 27-19 home triumph over the Broncos ended a three-game losing spell.
As for the Seahawks (2-3), Geno Smith can make plenty of throws and will likely rely on his big safety net DK Metcalf who registered two touchdowns in last week’s 26-17 home loss to the Rams, one of which came from Smith.
The Seahawks have lost three of four and Wilson’s extended absence only added to the team’s woes.
Seattle and Pittsburgh last faced each other in 2019 and the Seahawks have won their last two encounters.
