Well, that's pretty much what we expected. The Seattle Seahawks were basically overmatched facing a motivated Pittsburgh team looking to erase last week's bad effort against Baltimore.
I thought the defense would play much better than they did today. They really struggled getting off the field on third down. Pittsburgh finished 8 of 13 third downs offensively.
The Seahawks have not scored against the Steelers since 6:45 in the third quarter of Super Bowl XL -- nine quarters.

They got blanked 21-0 against the Steelers in Pittsburgh four years ago.
Seattle finished with 164 yards of total offense.
Thoughts? What did we learn, if anything from this one?
Brandon Browner really struggled in coverage
The Seahawks still can't run the ball.
Thoughts on Tarvaris Jackson's performance? He 20 of 29 for 159 yards, no TDs and no interceptions. He was sacked five times, and made no big plays in the passing game. Is it time for Charlie Whitehurst, or do you want to see what Jackson does in the next two home games.
Pittsburgh held a 38:44 to 21:16 advantage in time of possession.
