1st Quarter In-Game Update

The Seahawks had the football to start the second quarter, but a T.J. Watt pass defense ended the drive early and resulted in yet another punt.

Starting with their best field position of the night, their own 45-yard line, it was a 25-yard Diontae Johnson run which sparked the offense and moved the unit into the red-zone. A pass to Pat Freiermuth set the offense inside the 10, and another rookie, Najee Harris, caught his second touchdown pass of the season for the first score of the game.

Chris Boswell’s point after was good. Making the score 7-0 with 10:01 left in the first half.

DK Metcalf gave the Seahawks’ a jump start on their next drive, but a Cam Heyward sack ended the drive on the next series.

The Steelers’ offense remained hot, and a good mix of run and pass moved the ball into Seattle territory. When the Steelers hit the red-zone it was creativity which got the offense into the end-zone. Facing a 3rd and goal, it was Eric Ebron who ran it in for the touchdown.

Boswell was good, making the score 14-0 with 1:04 left in the 2nd quarter.

A Seattle three-and-out gave the Steelers the ball back with 36 seconds remaining in the half and one timeout. However, the drive went nowhere, keeping the score 14-0 at halftime.
