Sunday Night Football open thread: Seahawks at Steelers

Pride of Detroit

Tonight’s edition of Sunday Night Football features two teams trying to find a footing in their respective playoff hunt.

The Seattle Seahawks have the difficult task of overcoming the loss of their franchise quarterback Russell Wilson. In his stead will be Geno Smith, the once-prized prospect that has only amounted to a role as a career journeyman. Hurting his cause will be the loss of starting running back Chris Carson as well. The likes of D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett will have to step up tonight.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are really feeling the years of Ben Roethlisberger. Pittsburgh’s offense is struggling, and losing JuJu Smith-Schuster is another significant blow. The offensive line is a shadow of its former self, making for some tough sledding for Najee Harris. Even their defense, elite in 2020, has taken a step back, although getting T.J. Watt to full health should help.

Which of these 2-3 teams will prevail?

Here is how to watch tonight’s game:

Date: Sunday, October 17, 2021
Time: 8:20 p.m. ET
Location: Heinz Field—Pittsburgh, PA
Announcers: Al Michaels (play-by-play), Cris Collinsworth (analyst), Michele Tafoya (sidelines)
