The NFL is headlined by the quarterbacks. However, Week 6 Sunday Night Football may provide headlines for negative reasons, as it will be Geno Smith taking on the aged Ben Roethlisberger, with the Seattle Seahawks facing the Pittsburgh Steelers. As you can imagine, the Steelers are the NFL betting favorites.

The Seahawks have had extra time off since they played on Thursday during Week 5. They needed every single day since they will be entering a week without Russell Wilson for the very first time since he was drafted. The fact that Smith is the starter makes matters worse. On top of that, the run-heavy approach they may have taken could be impossible, after placing Chris Carson on IR this week. Defensively, Seattle has been inconsistent and has struggled to put together a full game.
The Steelers have injuries of their own, after losing JuJu Smith-Schuster for the season. While they lost him, the rest of the team has gotten healthier. There have been a number of injuries on the defensive side of the ball, but they will nearly be at full strength. Clearly, this is one of the most talented units, when healthy. Offensively, the offensive line stinks, and they have made Roethlisberger look even older than he actually is. However, given the matchup, they are more than capable of having success in this game, given the talent they have.
