Reasons why you should watch the match between Seattle and Pittsburgh:

So much Steelers What Seahawks They must be in emergency mode at the moment, both are far from the limelight in their respective divisions and it is too early in the season to see their rivals drift away, unfortunately one of the two will leave Heinz Field 2-4 , drifting away from a playoff spot.

The outlook is more complicated for Seattle that will not have Russell wilson at the controls and his absence could last up to eight weeks, a figure that would practically condemn the team to start planning for 2021.

Pittsburgh should take the opportunity to straighten the course and to think – once again – about the succession plan to Ben roethlisberger, whose end of his career seems closer and closer. –Erick Cervantes Roon
