Seahawks vs Steelers Preview
Seattle played a tight game with the Bengals before a long Tyler Lockett-Russell Wilson connection in the fourth quarter that allowed the Seahawks to escape with a 21-20 victory. It wasn’t pretty in a game where Seattle was favored by nearly 10 points, but it wasn’t anything in comparison to what the Steelers went through against the defending Super Bowl champion Patriots.
Tom Brady and the New England offense seemed to score at will, coming away with a 33-3 victory. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll sympathized with Pittsburgh, understanding the challenges of the opening week. He doesn’t expect the same kind of performance out of the Steelers on Sunday.
“Opening games are always difficult,” Carroll said. “You don’t know what you’re going to get. New England couldn’t have looked better. Not everybody starts the way they think and not everybody stays the way they start. (The Steelers are) a loaded team.”
Pittsburgh failed to show they had an answer to replacing the production of wide receiver Antonio Brown and running back Le’Veon Bell — who were All-Pros during their time in the Steel City.
“We’ve just got make more plays for (quarterback Ben Roethlisberger),” Steelers wide receiver Donte Moncrief told reporters. “It starts with the whole receiver’s room, everybody on offense. We’ve got to be better.”
The Steelers do have some history on their side. Over the storied career of veteran quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, the Steelers are 8-1 after losses by at least 20 points.
And there’s also the fact that the Seahawks just didn’t play that well, especially on offense. Seattle was nearly doubled up in total yardage (429-233) and needed Wilson to come through with his usual late heroics against a Cincy squad that’s anticipated to be one of the worst in the league.
“We started off kind of rusty. It was something we had to get the hang of, but we have to start off faster than that,” said Seahawks running back Chris Carson, who had a pair of touchdowns.
The Seahawks did get a good look at second-round rookie wide receiver DK Metcalf, who impressed with four catches for 89 yards.
“I think most rookies don’t recognize things as fast, in their first couple of games at least, as fast as DK did in that first game,” Wilson said of Metcalf. “I thought that he saw things, he saw me scrambling, reacted quickly. He’s got a great response there.”
The Steelers are listed as 3.5-point favorites for the game, with a total of 47.5.
