After a slow start, the Pittsburgh Steelers picked up steam and lead the Seattle Seahawks 14-0 at halftime. Here are our four takeaways from the first half.

Matt Canada offense showing up big

With each passing week we see a little more of offensive coordinator Matt Canada’s vision for this offense. The Steelers might only have 110 yards of total offense at halftime but you can see the innovation starting to poke through with more creative and efficient play calls.

Inside linebacker Robert Spillane continues to spell Devin Bush in the dime and we want answers as to why. Pittsburgh is supposed to have an elite playmaker in Bush but he’s being pulled on passing downs for a strictly one-dimensional reserve linebacker. It makes no sense.

I loved the pick of Tre Norwood for the Steelers and it is really paying dividends on Sunday night. Norwood is playing fearless and has a pair of huge defensive stops in the first half.

The Steelers defense has put the clamps on the Seattle offense. 68 total yards allowed, no points and two sacks of Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith with one from linebacker Alex Highsmith and the other from defensive tackle Cam Heyward.
