How Russell Wilson read the Steelers defense so well in 28-26 Seahawks win
Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was pretty good on Sunday in Pittsburgh. How good?
“Russell Wilson was able to surgically take apart this defense,” 710 ESPN Seattle’s Jake Heaps says in his latest trip to the film room to break down the Seahawks’ 28-26 victory over the Steelers.
Heaps, of course, knows Wilson’s game inside and out having spent time as one of Wilson’s backups with the Seahawks and now serving as the head QB coach for the Russell Wilson Quarterback Academy. So when Wilson completed 29 of 35 passes for three touchdowns, no interceptions and a single-game career-high 82.9 completion percentage, we turned to Heaps to break down why Wilson was so successful against the Steelers.

Seattle will be back in action at home next Sunday against the New Orleans Saints, who will be without quarterback Drew Brees. Radio coverage will begin with the pregame show at 10 a.m. on 710 ESPN Seattle and KIRO Radio 97.3 FM, with kickoff set for 1:25 p.m.
