Steelers-Seahawks, Then and Now (v.2)

Posted by Danny O'Neil

The Seahawks and Steelers each ran their way to Super Bowl XL, the Seahawks ranking No. 2 in the league in rushing yardage in 2005 while the Steelers were fifth.

Well, this season, neither one of the teams ranked in the top half of the league in rushing yardage yet while the Seahawks are coming off their worst record since 1992, the Steelers are preparing to play in their second Super Bowl in four seasons.


Well, the league's top-ranked defense has a lot to do with it, but it's not completely the explanation. Pittsburgh has improved its passing game and Ben Roethlisberger has a bigger hand in the outcome than he did during his second season as quarterback. Here's how the regular-season statistics from Seattle and Pittsburgh compare from the 2005 regular season and now:
