    No Roethlisberger, No Problem For The Steelers

    Ben Roethlisberger is out for 5 more weeks but that didn't stop Charlie Batch and the Steelers' defense from shutting down the Seahawks. It was a rough game for the Seahawks offense. Marshawn Lynch couldn't get anything going the whole game which made it very tough to move the ball. Tavaris Jackson started the game and had a poor outing. He threw 2 interceptions in the 1st quarter which set the Steelers up for their 2 FGs. The Steelers' opening drive was dominant as they moved down the field and took the lead. After the 2 FGs, it was a quick 13-0 lead and looking ugly for Seattle.​
    Jackson managed to set Seattle up for a FG before the half but it wasn't enough. He was benched in the 2nd half in favor of Charlie Whitehurst. Whitehurst has a respectable performance but getting just 3 offensive points is not enough to earn the starting job. The play of the game for Seattle came when Thurmond III intercepted Charlie Batch and returned it 55 yards in the 4th quarter to tie the game. There was suddenly a bright spot for the Seahawks as they were back in the game. With an inept offense though, there was nothing Seattle could do and eventually Rashard Mendenhall would break loose giving the Steelers the lead and win.​
