Steelers vs. Bills: 5 burning questions for Pittsburgh’s Sunday night showdown
Can the Steelers really be the fifth-seed?
This game could determine who is the fifth-seed in the AFC Playoffs. The Bills and the Steelers are the fifth and sixth seed respectively and are playing for the advantage. If the Steelers win, they will have the same record as the Bills and will own the tiebreaker with two games left.
If the Bills win, then they will move to two games ahead of the Steelers and will own the tiebreaker which means they will clinch the fifth seed. Therefore, this game counts as two games in terms of wild card seeding. These two teams have a lot to play for.
There is also another player in this AFC Wild Card, the Tennesee Titans. They are also 8-5 and if the Steelers lose and the Titans win, then they will be the sixth seed and a game ahead with two games to go. Therefore, there is a lot riding on this game.
