Roethlisberger, Conner hurt as Steelers fall to 0-2

The Steelers dropped to 0-2 after their fourth-quarter rally fell short in Sunday's home opener against the Seahawks. To make matters worse, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and James Conner both exited with injuries.

Mason Rudolph in the second half: 12-of-19, 112 yards, two touchdowns, one interception (off a Donte Moncrief drop), 92.5 passer rating. Clean debut for the second-year QB.

The Steelers' defense looks refreshed after the New England beating, containing the Seahawks' playaction and sacking the elusive Russell Wilson four times. But the offense still hasn't put together a lengthy touchdown drive through six quarters of the season. Ben Roethlisberger still looking to unlock the big plays downfield, and the Steelers can't get JuJu Smith-Schuster loose. They should get creative in finding their top receiver in the second half.

Ben Roethlisberger has returned to the sideline. He left the field briefly. Appeared to hold his throwing forearm/elbow area after a throw on the last drive. But it seems like he's going to keep playing.

Stephon Tuitt looking every bit like the $60-million man the Steelers signed two years ago. Tuitt's never had more than 6.5 sacks in a season, but the explosiveness has always been obvious. He's been winning consistently up front against Seattle with 1 1/2 sacks.

Devin Bush with the one-handed concentration pregame. The Steelers need a productive outing from Bush, who will be tasked with containing Russell Wilson.

Steelers OC Randy Fichtner said early run-game struggles got him away from it in New England, needs all receivers to pick up the slack at the No. 2 receiver spot opposite JuJu Smith-Schuster.
