Steelers vs. Seahawks live score, updates, highlights from NFL ‘Sunday Night Football’ game



The Seahawks (2-3) will play without quarterback Russell Wilson for the first time in a decade when they take on the Steelers (2-3) on “Sunday Night Football.”

While both teams hope to even out their records, the Steelers are looking to win two games in a row for the first time this season.

Geno Smith will step in for Wilson as he makes his first NFL start since 2017. Smith played last Thursday for Wilson after he left the game with a finger injury. Smith completed 10 out of 17 passes for 131 yards, with one touchdown and one interception. Smith’s rallying wasn’t enough for the Seahawks as they lost 26-17 to the Rams.

The Steelers will look to ride rookie Najee Harris to offset aging Ben Roethlisberger, who has struggled to start the 2021 season. The Seahawks rank 31st in rushing yards given up, with 145.2 yards per game. After Harris completed his first game over 100 rushing yards last Sunday against the Broncos with 122, this could be the Steelers chance to take advantage of their rushing game.

According to Draft Kings, the Steelers are 5-point favorites for the primetime Sunday game, with the point total predicted at 43.
