The “Sunday Night Football” matchup for Week 6 will be giving us a break from the intense action we have seen in Week 4 and 5 with the Buccaneers taking on the Patriots, and the Bills defeating the Chiefs.

The Seattle Seahawks and Pittsburgh Steelers face off at the Heinz Field tonight in what will be an interesting game for both teams’ quarterbacks.

Seattle Seahawks at Pittsburgh Steelers, 5:20 p.m. PT

The home team is coming off a well-played Week 5 game against the Broncos, 27-19. They’re getting tighter on defense and they have a few strong receivers, Diontae Johnson (25), and Chase Claypool (23).
Their main quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger, has not been performing at a high-level yet this year.

The Seahawks are in a bit of trouble as their own quarterback, Russel Wilson, is still recovering from a finger injury. Geno Smith, the talented quarterback who is replacing Wilson, will start his first game with the Seahawks tonight. It will not be easy for Smith to go against the Steelers’ defense that just held the Broncos to 19 points, but it certainly will be interesting to see him try.

What time is the NFL game tonight?

Date: Sunday, Oct. 17
Time: 8:20 p.m. ET

The Seahawks-Steelers game will kick off at 8:20 p.m. ET. The game will be at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.
