2021 Week 6 Steelers Vs Seahawks Live Update And...


The Pittsburgh Steelers lead the Seattle Seahawks 14-0 after the first half. Seattle will get the ball back after halftime, but they have not managed to get anything going on offense without Russell Wilson at quarterback.

After Eric Ebron’s rushing touchdown, many scrambled to see if it has been done before.

He has five career carries for -6 yards and 3 touchdowns. That is one odd stat line.

The Seahawks start with the ball at the 25 yard line after a touchback. Alex Collins for 5 yards off the right tackle on 1st. Similar story the next play, as he picked up enough for the first down. Minkah Fitzpatrick with the tackle.

Another 1st down run on back to back plays for Alex Collins. The Seahawks appear to have a game plan now, and it is to not use Geno Smith as much as possible. The Steelers safeties have to start playing up a little bit.

DK Metcalf with the quick catch and run for 9, and DeeJay Dallas was able to pick up the 1st down on 2nd. Alex Collins with another two successful runs in a row. This is going to be a… “fun” drive to break down tomorrow.

Like a broken record, another good run for Alex Collins. He initially was stopped, but bounced out around the pile. A flag came in after the play. TJ Watt called for a personal foul. He was just trying to get in the pile and punch the ball out, but the refs called him for punching the player. 1st and goal from the 4 yard line.

Alex Collins in for the touchdown. That was the Alex Collins drive. Steelers offense needs a drive in response to allow the defense some time to adjust with the x’s and o’s. 14-7 Steelers.

That was 10 plays, 75 yards for the Seahawks on that scoring drive and most of them were from Alex Collins as he gashed up the Steelers run defense.

Ray-Ray McCloud with a nice pickup on 1st down. Seattle Seahawks corner, Sidney Jones down injured on the play. Seattle is already weak and thin at corner, so Ben needs to target the backup here and test him.

Najee Harris for 6 yards on the ground on first down. Ben and Chase Claypool weren’t on the same page with the route and the ball fell incomplete.

Diontae Johnson found the soft spot of the zone on 3rd down. Ben Roethlisberger threaded the needle for a huge conversion!

The next play, Johnson with another deep pass to Diontae Johnson on the left sideline. This might be Ben Roethlisberger’s best game so far this year. Same goes for Johnson.

The Steelers are in the redzone on the 18 yard line. Diontae Johnson went backwards on the 2nd down screen pass. Chase Claypool with an illegal block in the back, so now they are right at field goal range. A big negative play for the Steelers.

The Steelers drive was killed by the penalty and they had to settle for a field goal. Chris Boswell nails the 27 yard chip shot. 17-7 Steelers.

Time to see if the Steelers defense was able to make the necessary adjustments. DeeJay Dallas returned the kick to the 38 to give the Seahawks good field position.

Alex Collins was brought down for no gain on first, but Tyler Lockett picked up the first down on 2nd. That was his first catch of the day.

Geno Smith hit Gerald Everett who broke multiple tackles and ran for 41 yards. Joe Schobert managed to trip him up just short of the end zone. 1st and goal from the 2 yard line. Alex Collins almost span in for the touchdown, but was brought down by Cameron Heyward.

Will Dissly in for the touchdown on 2nd down. TJ Watt bit on the play fake or it would have been a sack. 17-14 Steelers.

This game is suddenly close. So far, the Steelers defense can’t solve this offense after 2nd half adjustments.

Najee Harris tackled for a loss on 1st down. Steelers need to end the momentum here. Najee Harris check down on 2nd for a small gain. Chase Claypool with a 50/50 ball that he couldn’t bring in on 3rd. The Steelers will punt and the Seahawks now have a chance to take control of this game.

Pressley Harvin had perhaps his worst punt of the year as he shanked it for 32 yards.
