Steelers/Bills Recap

It’s a great time to be a Bills fan. For the first time since 1991, the Buffalo Bills are 10-3 after defeating the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night football by a final score of 26-15. It was a great chance for Buffalo to show the world they are a legit team and they took advantage of the opportunity. Even though the first half was a rough one for the Bills offense, they finished the game strong. In this article, I will break down some of the key things that I noticed on Sunday night.

Defense stepping up

Buffalo’s defense has been much better as of late, and they were solid against Pittsburgh. Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger went 21/37, throwing for 187 yards. He threw two touchdowns and two interceptions. The first interception resulted in pick six thanks to Bills cornerback Taron Johnson. If you ask me, this was the turning point of the game. The pick six would be Buffalo’s first defensive touchdown since 2017.

After giving up the first touchdown of the game, Bills cornerback Levi Wallace made up for it as he would pick off Big Ben as the Steelers were trying to make a comeback with less than ten minutes to go in the game. It was great to see the defense get some turnovers, especially against a good team like Pittsburgh.

As I mentioned earlier, it was rough first half for the Bills offense. However, after Johnson’s pick six, they woke up. Quarterback Josh Allen finished the game 24/43, throwing for 238 yards. Just like Roethlisberger, Allen also threw two touchdowns but just one interception. A big reason why the offense was able to get going, two words; Stefon Diggs. The Bills receiver finished the game with over 100 receiving yards and a touchdown.
