Answers to the five questions after the Steelers loss to the Bills
The Steelers lost on a four-interception night by Devlin Hodges. They move to 8-6 but still have the inside track to make the playoffs.
The Pittsburgh Steelers lost last night on Sunday Night Football and it was a tough loss. The Steelers were in it until about seconds left in the fourth quarter when Devlin Hodges threw his fourth interception which iced the game.
This loss was unfortunate because it closed the door on the Steeler’s chances of becoming the fifth-seed in the AFC. It also means the Steelers will have to keep pace with the Tennessee Titans to win the wild-card.
This team has been playing good football and they lost on a night that they usually do well. The Black & Gold usually bring it in prime time in the regular season and in December. That makes this loss more disappointing.
Devlin Hodges had his worse game as a Steeler where he threw four interceptions. Hodges is an aggressive quarterback and Sunday Night that aggressiveness hurt him. He did look confident all night though.
The Steelers and the Bills both played great defense and so the Steelers defense should be commended even though they lost.
One thing that I would have liked to have seen better from the Steelers was the running game. The Bills blitzed Devlin Hodges all night and that made it hard to run the ball. I would have liked to see more screens to Jaylen Samuels in the gameplan.
I think the offensive game plan relied too heavily on the young quarterback. They wanted him to air it out in a game that the Steelers could have played more conservative.
As I do after games, I will answer the five questions from before the game.
