10 thing to watch for at the Seahawks

What to keep an eye on in regular-season game No. 11 against the Seahawks:


Here is a look at the statistical leaders for the both the Steelers and Seahawks heading into the Week 12 contest at CenturyLink Field.

POISE IN THE NOISE:** Seahawks' opponents have been flagged for an NFL-high 147 false-start penalties in Seattle since 2005 (1.73 per game over 85 games). One or two of those at the wrong time can prove problematic.

NEVER OUT OF IT: Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has 16 fourth-quarter/overtime comebacks in 66 career games since 2012. That ties Tony Romo of Dallas for the most in the NFL in that span.

NEVER BEEN DONE: Wilson has never been beaten at home by an AFC team (6-0). He has 11 touchdown passes, two interceptions and a passer rating of 106.3 in his first six games against AFC opponents at home.

STRONG FINISHERS: The Seahawks have an NFL-best 23-5 record in November/December games since 2012 (2-1 this season).


HOW THE WEST WAS WON:** The Steelers are a win away from sweeping the NFC West Division after already having beaten San Francisco, St. Louis and Arizona.

MILESTONE TD: QB Ben Roethlisberger's next TD pass will move him past former Seahawks QB Dave Krieg (261) and into sole possession of 14th place on the NFL's all-time list.

CONFERENCE CALL: Mike Tomlin is 24-11 all-time against the NFC in the regular season, including 3-0 this season. Roethlisberger is 30-12, including 2-0 this season.

SETTING THE PACE: The Steelers lead the NFL in yards per rushing play (4.9) and are second in the league in yards per play (6.3).

FRESHMAN SENSATION: K Chris Boswell has connected on 14 of his first 15 field goal attempts and his success rate of 93.3 percent is the highest in Steelers' history for a rookie/first-year kicker with at least 10 attempts (Jeff Reed went 17-for-19, 89.5 percent, in 2002).

THE ONE AND ONLY: Seattle WR Tyler Lockett is the only player in the NFL with a receiving TD (three), a punt-return TD (one) and a kickoff-return TD (one) this season.
