Week 14 Sunday Night Football: Steelers At Buffalo Bills

This is one of the toughest games on the Steelers schedule and will be a good test to see how Pittsburgh shakes up against one the AFC’s best. The Bills have added a lot of firepower this off-season to what was already an extremely talented roster.

They added one of the most explosive wide receivers in the NFL in Stefon Diggs and managed to steal Iowa defensive end AJ Epenesa in the draft. The Steelers defense can surely handle Buffalo’s talented offense however, this game relies on the shoulders of Big Ben and the offense.

If the offense is able to overcome the stout Buffalo defense, the Steelers can come away with an extremely hard-fought victory. A win like this will surely have an impact on the AFC playoff race and could cement the Steelers as a true contender in the AFC.

As of right now, it’s difficult to predict this game because the Steelers offense is still up in the air. So for now, I’ll chalk this game up as one of those “tough pills to swallow” losses, but that can surely change once we *hopefully* see the team on the field.

Prediction: 24-21 Bills
