Steelers vs Seahawks: Pittsburgh will take on Seattle at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday at home. Pittsburgh has the odds in their favor, so they’ll need to guard against complacency.
The Steelers had to hit the road for their first game, and unfortunately the road hit them back. They suffered a grim 3-33 defeat to New England last Sunday. Pittsburgh was given a dose of their own medicine in this game as New England apparently hadn’t forgotten their loss the last time these teams played, back in Dec. of last year.
