It really is been slow but he’s been productive at initially as an outlet receiver just before busting out as a runner with blocking assist. He’s maximizing every single yard obtainable and is a drive in the purple zone, as well. This could be a good primary-time professional showcase for a back again who was the significant school highlight.

Will DK Metcalf make a difference?

Wilson was uncanny in pushing the ball downfield this time. His absence will hurt Metcalf on the perimeter and deep, offered the Steelers’ robust move rush and obtaining greater exterior cornerback play. The Seahawks have to have to go Metcalf all around to get a respectable matchup so Smith can get the ball to him in key places for chunk gains.

Pete Carroll vs. Mike Tomlin

Stat that issues

No Wilson adjustments almost everything in the Seattle offense. Long gone is the proficiency in throwing the ball deep and it also hurts that the operating activity is shorthanded without Carson. The Steelers are vulnerable towards the slot and limited passing activity, but Smith to Lockett there often will not aid the Seahawks significantly. Roethlisberger plays well more than enough against a weak defense as Harris operates the residence team to 2nd fifty percent runaway.
