NFL power rankings Week 3: Titans fall back to earth after loss to Colts
8. Seattle Seahawks (2-0)
To nobody’s surprise, Russell Wilson was exceptional in the Seattle Seahawks’ 28-26 road win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Wilson threw for 300 yards and three touchdowns, while also adding 22 yards on the ground.
Per usual, Seattle also got a significant contribution from its rushing attack, which averaged 4.6 yards per carry en route to 151 yards on the ground.
Despite the Seahawks looking solid on offense, this game was close late. The Steelers pulled to within two points in the fourth quarter, but Wilson and Co. were able to close the game out with a drive that burned the final four minutes off the clock.
Seattle will carry a 2-0 record into a Week 3 matchup with one of the league’s elite, the New Orleans Saints; although the Saints are in danger of not having their Hall of Fame signal-caller, Drew Brees, who suffered a thump injury on Sunday.
