The result of the Sunday's matchup will have playoff implications for both teams. The Seahawks seek to stay alive for a Wild card slot, as some analysts believe the team will not have enough wins to surpass Arizona Cardinals. For the Steelers, they are just a couple games back from Cincinnati Bengals, so they are one of the strong contenders for a division title.
The passing gameplay of both teams will be an exciting thing to watch. Ben Roethlisberger of Steelers has a lot of time to get ready in the upcoming game. He can find some holes in the Seahawk's defense to help his team. Roethlisberger is considered as one of the best quarterbacks in the league.
The Steelers are aiming to be the top team in their division after Cincinnati has struggled to get wins as of late. The team is also coming off a bye week, which means more time for Big Ben to rest his beaten up body.
On other hand, Tyler Lockett's agility and affinity for big downfield plays can do great things for Seahawks. He is also a growing factor in the offensive game plan, as the season has progressed. He had four catches - two touchdowns - on five targets last week.
In addition, rookie Thomas Rawls can do amazing plays for the Seattle Seahawks. He has great floor awareness and has the ability to explode through an opening. If Rawls can get through the holes in the Steelers' defense, he can create opportunities for his teammates.
If Seattle wants to win the game, they have to defend the passes and not let the Steelers dominate the game early.
The Seahawks currently sit at .500 and at second place in the NFC West after they defeated San Francisco last week.
Red zone failures will be extremely costly in this game. The Steelers are one of the teams that can score in bunches, while the Seahawks appears to struggle against teams who have great scoring plays.
Both teams are still mathematically in the playoff race and need to grab wins this week.
In the league's history, Pittsburgh has won against the Seahawks during the last 10 years, dating back to a 2006 Super Bowl win against Seattle. Since that time, the Steelers and Seahawks have played twice. Steelers crushed Seattle in each game, 21-0 in 2007 and 24-0 in 2011.
According to some fans, this game has the potential to be this week's best game.
