The 0-1 Seattle Seahawks will head on to Heinz Field to face the also 0-1 Pittsburgh Steelers this Sunday September 18th, 2011 at 1 PM ET.
Circumstances couldn’t be worse for the mediocre Seahawks coming into this game, after Pittsburgh was humiliated by the Baltimore Ravens and will be looking to punish the Seahawks to get back on track.
The Seahawks are coming off a loss to the San Francisco 49ers, on a game where they surrendered 85 rushing yards, one rushing TD and only 124 passing yards with no touchdowns through the air, however don’t get fooled by those numbers, the Steelers offense certainly has the all the skill set to chew up the Seahawks and then spit them back out. And the defense? Let’s just say it’s going to be a long day for Tarvaris Jackson.
The season certainly did not start pretty for Ben Roethlisberger however, throwing three picks, fumbling twice and absorbing a bunch of hits from a rabid Ravens defense. Wouldn’t be surprised to see Pittsburgh go back to a power-running strategy and go to the ground heavily to punish Seattle right from the start.
Anyway we look at this game we find no way Seattle could upset the Steelers at home, as a matter of fact everything points to the fact that they will get smacked around all day. This one has blow out written all over it and we certainly think the Steelers are fully capable of winning by more than three scores. Take the Pittsburgh Steelers at home!
