This is the month that creates separation or doom for teams. The NFL playoffs are within sight for the Steelers, but the Bills have to the same line of vision.
DUCK TALES! WOO-HOO!EVERY WEEK THEY’RE OUT THERE MAKING DUCK TALES! WOO-HOO! If I had told you the Steelers would be 8-5 with the playoffs in reach after falling to the Ravens in week 5… how many drug tests would you have administered?

This week, they have another roadblock to their 2019 playoff hopes: the Buffalo Bills. This team isn’t one to be taken lightly either.
They play a similar style of football that the Steelers do: tough, dominant defense with a complementary offense. The difference is the Bills do one thing offensively better than 27 other teams: running the football (ranked at 5th total.)
The Steelers have just now found some consistent traction in the run game. In their first 8 games, they only eclipsed 100 yards rushing twice. In the past three weeks, they have achieved this in all three games; combining for a 5-0 record when accomplishing this milestone.
This game will be on primetime and will be a much-anticipated matchup as both teams have a lot to play for. Here are my three key matchups to watch this week that big have an impact on the Steelers postseason dreams…
