Good afternoon, 12s. Here's a look at what's happening today – Monday, Oct. 18 – for your Seattle Seahawks.
What's Being Said: Steelers 23, Seahawks 20
The Seahawks dropped their second straight game on Sunday night, this time in heartbreaking fashion. After Geno Smith led a drive to set up a game-tying field goal from Jason Myers at the end of regulation, the contest was sent to overtime. The two teams traded punts on their first drives of overtime, then the Steelers forced a fumble to set up a game-winning field goal from Chris Boswell.
Led by running backs Alex Collins, Travis Homer and DeeJay Dallas, the Seahawks rushed for 144 yards on 27 carries. Collins led the group with 101 rushing yards and a touchdown. Geno Smith, filling in for the injured Russell Wilson, was 23 of 32 for 209 yards and a touchdown. Bobby Wagner and Jordyn Brooks both had 14 total tackles to anchor the defense, which allowed its fewest points since Week 1.
