The Seahawks (2-3) will play without quarterback Russell Wilson for the first time in a decade when they face the Steelers (2-3) in “Sunday Night Football”.
As both teams hope to tie their records, the Steelers are looking to win back-to-back games for the first time this season.
Geno Smith will replace Wilson as he makes his first NFL start since 2017. Smith played for Wilson last Thursday after leaving the game with a finger injury. Smith completed 10 of 17 passes for 131 yards, with one touchdown and one interception. Smith’s rally was not enough for the Seahawks who lost 26-17 to the Rams.

The Steelers will look to mount rookie Najee Harris to make up for aging Ben Roethlisberger, who struggled to start the 2021 season. The Seahawks are ranked 31st in rushing yards surrendered, with 145.2 yards per game. After Harris finished his first 100-yard rushing game last Sunday against the Broncos with 122, this could be an opportunity for the Steelers to enjoy their rushing game.
According to Draft Kings, the Steelers are the 5-point favorites for Sunday’s prime-time game, with an expected point total of 43.
