Bob Condotta, Seattle Times: Seahawks 23, Steelers 19

"This feels like one of the more even matchups of the season pitting two 8-7 teams, who also have many similar statistical rankings and coming off big wins to keep their playoff hopes realistically alive. But it may be somewhat unnoticed that Seattle has won five of its last six home games. Expect that trend to make the difference Sunday and put the Seahawks over the top."

Matt Calkins, Seattle Times: Seahawks 24, Steelers 21

"Geno Smith has rediscovered his form for a team that looks playoff bound. Seattle won't squander a postseason opportunity in front of its home fans Sunday."

Adam Jude, Seattle Times: Seahawks 17, Steelers 16

"The Seahawks finally have some momentum, and some semblance of a home-field advantage, and you get the feeling that that fourth-quarter magic will come in handy again against a pesky Pittsburgh team that is also fighting to stay in the playoff chase."

Victoria Hernandez, USA Today: Seahawks 21, Steelers 19

"The Steelers looked good behind Mason Rudolph last week and getting George Pickens in the mix. But the Seahawks have been piecing wins together of their own, Geno Smith is back, and they have a stronger chance of making the playoffs while Pittsburgh might need to think about big picture decisions."

Safid Deen, USA Today: Seahawks 26, Steelers 20

"The Steelers have just found ways to win this season despite so many things stacked against them. But a win in Seattle isn't in the card. The Seahawks improve their playoff chances in a hard-fought win at home Sunday."

Jordan Mendoza, USA Today: Seahawks 21, Steelers 20

"Seattle is picking up momentum at the right time after it looked like things were heading south. Pittsburgh looked great last week in its must-win game, but the offense isn't able to be as explosive against a solid secondary that leads the Seahawks to another win."

Bill Bender, Sporting News: Seahawks 21, Steelers 18

"The last two meetings between these teams have been decided by a combined total of five points. Another close call seems inevitable between long-time coaches Mike Tomlin and Pete Carroll – who somehow have their teams hanging in the playoff race."

Pete Prisco, CBS Sports: Seahawks 29, Steelers 27

"This is a playoff game of sorts for these two. The Seahawks are coming off a nice comeback victory over the Titans, while the Steelers handled the Bengals in Mason Rudolph's first start. This will be a lot tougher on the road for Rudolph, but the Steelers will hang around. In the end, I think Geno Smith will make enough plays to win it late for Seattle like he did last week's game."
