PITTSBURGH — Bozeman High School graduate Will Dissly caught two touchdowns from Russell Wilson Sunday, helping the Seattle Seahawks to a 28-26 road win in Pittsburgh.

Dissly scored Seattle's first touchdown with 8:40 to play in the second quarter on a 14-yard touchdown pass from Wilson that tied the game at 7-7. Dissly then gave the Seahawks a 14-10 lead with a 12-yard TD catch with 9:49 left in the third quarter. He finished with five catches for 50 yards.

The University of Washington product started strong in his rookie year in 2018, catching eight passes for 156 yards and two touchdowns before suffering a season-ending knee injury in Seattle's fourth game on Sept. 30.

Dissly re-injured the knee last week but suited up Sunday and finished Seattle's win without additional incident.
