Metcalf excited about Seahawks' 2-0 start, first TD (1:13)

Brady Henderson ESPN 

Russell Wilson said he told DK Metcalf at halftime that he was going to help the Seahawks win the game. Metcalf had a rough first half with one catch on four targets and a facemask penalty that forced Jason Myers to attempt a 58-yard field goal that he missed. Sure enough, Metcalf's 28-yard touchdown on well-placed deep ball from Wilson put Seattle up by nine points midway through the fourth quarter. He finished with three catches for 71 yards on seven targets. Said Wilson: "He kept battling. I told him I'd keep coming to him. He's a star. He's going to be. He works at it.”

Russell Wilson completed 29 of 35 passes Sunday for a career-best 82.85% completion rate. He reached that mark with a lot of quick throws, especially in the second half. Pete Carroll gave credit to offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer for an adjustment the Seahawks made in going to more of a quick passing game to counter the Steelers' pass-rush, which notched four sacks of Wilson in the first half. Wilson wasn't sacked in the second half. "This was classic taking-what-they're'giving," Carroll said. "We had to put Russ really in command of the rhythm of the game and all the quick stuff, he did a great job on. He did a great job throwing the seam routes to [Will Dissly] for the two touchdown passes. Other than that, I thought Russ' rhythm really picked up and the sacks went away in the second half and really cleaned things up."

Chris Carson said he appreciated the trust the Seahawks showed in him by calling his number on fourth-and-1 after his two fumbles, adding: "I've got to own it. If I'm going to be the guy around here, I've can't make those mistakes, so it's something I've got to correct." Carson also fumbled in the Seahawks' opener. His second fumble Sunday was the result of a botched handoff with Russell Wilson.

Bobby Wagner said the Seahawks felt like Ben Roethlisberger leaving just before halftime was their chance to seize the game.

Russell Wilson's three touchdowns Sunday give him 201 for his career. According to ESPN Stats & Information, Wilson is the fifth-fastest player to reach that mark in terms of games played. The top six: Dan Marino (89), Aaron Rodgers (99), Peyton Manning (106), Brett Favre (107), Wilson (114) and Tom Brady (116).

Bobby Wagner and other Seahawks players doused Pete Carroll with water after he notched his 100th win (regular season and playoffs) with Seattle. A drenched Carroll had a moment with Seahawks vice chair Bert Kolde when asked about that milestone, which he reached on his 68th birthday.

Center Justin Britt told Chris Carson after he lost one fumble and was part of a botched handoff that resulted in another that those plays won't define his day. Britt was right. Carson picked up a fourth-and-1 that allowed the Seahawks to kneel out a victory over Pittsburgh. "Those were just some bad-luck plays," Britt said. "Whatever it is. I don't know what happened, but it's just one of those plays that just sucks to happen. I gave up a sack today, but that play didn't define how my day went. I feel like I had a pretty kick-ass day and dominated inside for the most part. That shows our toughness, individually and as a unit, as a team ... And I told him, all that matters is the next play, he's going to be the one that we rely on."

Russell Wilson's average time to throw today was 1.89 seconds. That's the fastest average time to throw game (min. 14 attempts) since EJ Manuel in Week 4 of 2017 (also 1.89), per NFL Next Gen Stats.

Rashaad Penny stopping on a dime, cutting back and racing 37 yards to the end zone is your latest reminder of why the Seahawks chose him 27th overall last year. That decision was widely panned at the time and is still being criticized with Penny continuing to back up Chris Carson after his underwhelming rookie season. But there were flashes, and that's the latest one.

The Seahawks have nearly doubled the Steelers' offensive output -- 202 yards to 103 -- but trail 10-7 at the half. The big difference is a familiar story: penalties. Seattle has seven accepted penalties (a few others were declined) for 63 yards. A face mask on DK Metcalf on the final drive of the first half pushed Seattle back 15 yards and made it a 58-yard field-goal attempt for Jason Myers, who missed wide left. Russell Wilson has already been sacked four times, which may have been the reason Seattle went to a quick passing game. You may see more of those in the second half.

Will Dissly's 2018 rookie season ended in Week 4 with a torn patellar tendon, one of the most devastating injuries an NFL player can endure. You would not know that based on how strong Dissly has looked since he began practicing at the start of training camp. His 14-yard touchdown catch from Russell Wilson is his third score in six career games. Not bad for someone considered a blocking specialist coming out of college.

Safety Lano Hill will apparently make his third career start today with Tedric Thompson sidelined. One of his two previous starts was the Seahawks' 38-31 win over the Chiefs last season. The Seahawks considered Hill the best tackler in the 2017 draft, when they chose him in the third round.

This is the first of four 10 a.m. PST kickoffs on the Seahawks' 2019 schedule. According to ESPN charting, the Seahawks' .571 regular-season winning percentage (12-9) in such games since Russell Wilson's rookie season in 2012 is the best among the five West Coast teams.

Ziggy Ansah's Seahawks debut will have to wait at least another week as he's inactive for today's game at Pittsburgh. Ansah (shoulder) was listed as questionable and Pete Carroll was non-committal about Ansah playing against the Steelers even though he was a full participant in practice Thursday and Friday, saying: "He's getting really close. If he doesn't go this week, he certainly has a great chance for next week." The Seahawks have taken a long-term view with Ansah all along, which is why they aren't pressing him into action until they're positive he's ready. By being inactive again, he loses out on another per-game active roster bonus worth $93,750.
