Seattle Seahawks vs. Pittsburgh Steelers: Recap and Highlights

The Seattle Seahawks faced the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sept. 15 in Week 2 of the 2019 NFL season. Here are highlights from the game.

The Seattle Seahawks entered this game after a somewhat depressing yet still rewarding victory over the Cincinnati Bengals last week. Meanwhile, the Steelers took a huge loss at the hands of the New England Patriots.

The game started off slow with the Steelers and Seahawks combining for five straight punts. That streak was broken by a Seahawks fumble on their third drive that led to a Steelers touchdown after James Conner picked up a one-yard touchdown run. Will Dissly caught a pass from Russell Wilson to answer, making it 7-7. Two punts later, the Steelers hit a field goal, while on the next drive, the Seahawks missed a three-point try.

Ben Roethlisberger appeared to be in pain for the whole first half, and he did not return to the game after the arm injury forced him to head to the locker room. Mason Rudolph took over at QB.

To open the second half, the Seahawks punted to the Steelers, but Rudolph was picked off and the Seahawks converted on another Will Dissly touchdown to take the lead. The Steelers hit a field goal before three consecutive drives ended in a touchdown (two for Seattle and one for Pittsburgh). Pittsburgh would soon get a Vance McDonald touchdown, but the Seahawks secured the game with some first downs, giving Seattle the 28-26 win.

Russell Wilson finished 29-for-35 with three touchdowns on exactly 300 yards. Rashaad Penny ran for 62 yards on 10 carries while Chris Carson ran for 61 yards on 15 touches. Tyler Lockett caught a career-high 10 passes for 79 yards, while rookie D.K. Metcalf caught three passes for 61 yards and a touchdown. Will Dissly hauled in all five of his targets, picking up 50 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Dissly joined Malik Turner, Carson, Nick Vannett, C.J. Prosise, and Penny on the list of Seahawks who hauled in all of their targets.

For Pittsburgh, Roethlisberger completed eight passes on 15 attempts for 75 yards before being replaced by Rudolph, who completed 12 passes on 19 attempts for 112 yards, a touchdown, and a pick. James Conner had 11 carries for 33 yards and a touchdown before leaving with a knee injury. JuJu Smith-Schuster caught five passes for 85 yards while Vance McDonald reeled in all seven targets for 38 yards and a pair of touchdowns — the only touchdown receptions for Pittsburgh.

So believe it or not, the Steelers are off to an 0-2 start and will now prepare for what could be a tough matchup as they head out west to face the 2-0 San Francisco 49ers.

As for Seattle, they are off to a hot start and will be tasked with prepping for the New Orleans Saints, whom they host next week.
