W, 28-26 @ Steelers
It hasn’t been easy for the Seahawks this season, as Seattle barely managed to squeak by the Bengals in Week 1, despite being on the wrong end of most stat categories, then holding on in Pittsburgh to upend the Steelers 28-26 in Week 2.
But those are the kinds of wins the Seahawks seem to pull off on a regular basis. Fans have gotten used to it by now, and no one in Seattle would complain about being up 2-0 on the young season.
The Seahawks got their run game going again, picking up 151 rush yards total, utilizing running backs Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny frequently and often.
Yet that doesn’t change the fact this is quarterback Russell Wilson’s offense, and he was his spectacular self once again, tossing three touchdowns and 300 yards. His late scramble for a first down was crucial, too, even if his knee churned up some turf in the process.
Seattle was aided by the Steelers losing running back James Conner to injury, yet Pittsburgh managed to make things interesting late.
Still, the Seahawks going into a tough environment in Week 2, and winning, helps boost head coach Pete Carroll’s squad safely into the top 10 of our NFL power rankings.
