ABSTRACT
The article compares the performance of football teams Pittsburgh Steelers and Seattle Seahawks. The Steelers' special teams are strong across the board. P Chris Gardocki is one of the top directional and hang-time punters, and K Jeff Reed has been solid throughout his career. The coverage units are bolstered by James Harrison and Clint Kriewaldt, two of the NFL's best, and Sean Morey also is a standout on special teams. Pittsburgh effectively uses linemen on the back wall on kickoff returns to lead the way for KRs Ricardo Colclough and Ike Taylor.
