PITTSBURGH—The Seahawks lost a heartbreaker in overtime on Sunday night, falling to the Pittsburgh Steelers 23-20. The loss leaves the Seahawks with a 2-4 record, knowing they have work to do to get back in the playoff race.

In addition to that final score, here are 10 numbers of note after Sunday night's loss:

2

Late-game turnovers in as many games committed by Seattle with a chance to take the lead.

3

Third down conversions for Seattle on 12 attempts, including just 1 of 6 in the first half when Seattle was shut out.

1

Quarterback hits recorded by the Seahawks, who had a hard time getting to Ben Roethlisberger with Pittsburgh's quick passing game.

101

Rushing yards by Alex Collins on 20 carries, making him Seattle's first 100-yard rusher since Chris Carson had 133 against Carolina in Week 15 of the 2019 season.

7

Steelers punts forced by Seattle's defense, a season-high for an opponent.

14

Tackles made by Bobby Wagner, tied with Jordyn Brooks for a team high. Wagner is now tied for the NFL lead with 72 tackles in six games.

Explosive plays (16-plus yard passes, 12-plus yard rushes) by Pittsburgh's offense in the game, a sign of progress for Seattle's defense.

7

Defensive backs frequently deployed by the Seahawks defense, particularly on third down, a new look that contributed to Seattle holding Pittsburgh to a 5-for-14 conversion rate on third down.

2

Passes defensed by cornerback D.J. Reed, who also had nine tackles in one of his best games of the season.

3

Tackles made by rookie cornerback Tre Brown in his NFL debut, including a crucial third-down stop in overtime. Brown ended up playing 40 of 53 defensive snaps after taking over for an injured Sidney Jones IV.
