The Seahawks earned their first road win of the year on Sunday, holding off the Pittsburgh Steelers 28-26 at Heinz Field. In addition to that final score, here are 10 numbers that helped tell the story of Sunday’s win:

2

Wins in two games for the Seahawks, marking the first time they have opened a season 2-0 since 2013.

100

Victories as the Seahawks head coach, postseason included, for Pete Carroll, who last season became the winningest coach in franchise history.

201

Career touchdown passes for Russell Wilson through 114 games, making him the fifth fastest quarterback in league history to throw 200 touchdown passes.

45

Career games in which Wilson has thrown multiple touchdown passes without an interception, the most in NFL history for a quarterback in his first eight seasons. Sunday was Wilson’s 22nd career game throwing three or more touchdown passes without an interception.

10

Receptions for Tyler Lockett, a new single-game high for the fifth-year receiver.

9

Explosive plays for Seattle’s offense (runs of 12 or more yards, completions of 16 or more), including a 28-yard Wilson touchdown pass to DK Metcalf and a 37-yard Rashaad Penny touchdown run. That’s an improvement for Seattle, which had five explosive plays in Week 1.

1

Sack for defensive end Branden Jackson, the only one Seattle recorded in the game. Jackson is from McKeesport, which is about half an hour from Pittsburgh. He and Pittsburgh native Quinton Jefferson served as gameday captains for Seattle along with Wilson and Bobby Wagner.

187

Passing yards allowed by Seattle’s defense, a big improvement after allowing 418 passing yards in Week 1.

27

Pittsburgh’s third-down success rate, as the Steelers managed to convert just 3 of 11 third downs.

2

Touchdown receptions for tight end Will Dissly, who now has four touchdowns in six career games.
