Seahawks vs. Steelers: Roethlisberger Makes it 24-0 Pittsburgh After Third Quarter

It's been quite a forgetable afternoon for the Seattle Seahawks so far out in the Steel City, finding themselves on the wrong side of a 24-0 beating at the hands of Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers this afternoon. 

Seattle has a total of 137 yards for the day compared to Pittsburgh's 387, as well as only seven first downs compared to 21 for the Steelers thus far. Roethlisberger is 22/29 for 279 yards so far including a two yard pass to Mike Wallace for his first passing TD of the game in the third quarter, while Tavaris Jackson is 16/24 for 122 yards and no scores. 

Jackson even leads the team in rushing yards after three periods with a total of 12 yards, one more than Marshawn Lynch and three more than Justin Forsett. Needless to say both sides of the Steelers came to play today.
