The article focuses on a recent football tournament between the teams Seattle Seahawks and Pittsburgh Steelers. Facing third-and-8 at the Pittsburgh 47 and trailing, 21-10, with 6:36 left, the Seahawks lined up in a four-wide receiver formation. Cornerback Deshea Townsend and linebacker James Farrior swooped in from the left side while Joey Porter dropped into coverage on the other side. Although the Seahawks gained 396 yards, Matt Hasselbeck was sacked three times and intercepted once, by cornerback Ike Taylor at the Pittsburgh 5.
