Seattle Seahawks at Pittsburgh Steelers Predictions & Tips


Pittsburgh can take advantage of Russell Wilson’s absence to beat Seattle.

The Steelers defense can shut down a Geno Smith-led offense and control the clock with the run game.

And on the other side of the football, Pittsburgh can take advantage of this poor Seahawks run defense.

  • Seattle Seahawks are without star QB Russell Wilson
  • Seattle Seahawks are last in the NFL in total defense
  • Seattle Seahawks are second to last in the NFL in run defense
  • Seattle Seahawks have covered in just 2 of their last 9 road games

Head To Head


  • Seattle Seahawks lead the all-time series 10-9
  • Seattle Seahawks won 28-26 when the teams last met in 2019

Seattle Seahawks Form


Seattle head to Pittsburgh with a 2-3 record and they head there without starting QB Russell Wilson.

The Seahawks opened with a 28-16 win over Indianapolis but fell to a 33-30 overtime defeat at home to Tennessee after blowing a 14-point lead in the fourth quarter.

A 30-17 defeat to Minnesota followed before they stopped the rot with a 28-21 win at San Francisco.

However, Seattle fell to 0-2 at home last weekend as they were beaten 26-17 by the Los Angeles Rams.

To make matters worse Wilson was hurt in that loss and that means Geno Smith will start here.

Smith is 10/17 for 131 yards, one touchdown and one interception so far this season.

The running backs have not been major contributors with Chris Carson and Alex Collins combining for just 356 rushing yards. They have four TDs between them.

Tyler Lockett (390 yards, three TDs) and DK Metcalf (383 yards, five TDs) are their biggest weapons on offense.

The defense has struggled badly through five games and ranks last in total defense. It’s biggest Achilles heel is the run game – they rank #31 in the NFL.

Pittsburgh Steelers Form


Pittsburgh brought an end to a three-game skid last weekend and desperately need to build on it.

The Steelers kicked off their season with an impressive 23-16 upset of Buffalo.

They were brought back down to Earth by a 26-17 loss in the home opener against Las Vegas and were then beaten 24-10 at home by Cincinnati a week later.

Pittsburgh’s losing run hit three games with a 27-17 loss at Green Bay, but they finally got back on track last weekend with a big 27-19 win over Denver.

QB Ben Roethlisberger is 124/195 for 1,286 yards, six touchdowns and four interceptions so far.

Rookie RB Najee Harris has made an impression with 505 yards from scrimmage and three TDs. He is coming into this on the back of his first 100+ yard rushing performance in the NFL.

Chase Claypool leads the team in receiving with 341 yards and a touchdown. Diontae Johnson has 305 yards and three TDs.

The defense has been solid through five games and ranks #10 in points allowed per game.

Verdict

Pittsburgh breathed new life into their season last weekend and can build on that here.

Seattle are struggling on defense and their offense is missing its best and most important talent in Wilson.
