4 best moments from the Steelers Week 14 loss vs. Bills
After winning most of the first half and going into halftime with it being close the Bills made some plays.
The Bills would score over 20 unanswered points between the last 5 minutes of the first half and the 3rd quarter. It looked as though the Steelers were on the verge of getting decimated.
The Steelers would march down the field and score a touchdown to JuJu Smith-Schuster. They would then score a 2 point conversion to bring themselves within 1 possession. It was a great drive, one that the Steelers looked as good offensively as they had all game.
It was a good play call and the 2 point conversion was good as well. This play is what gives the Steelers a chance again to win the game. If the Steelers could force another turnover or punt and get the offense back on the field with more momentum, they could stage a comeback. Unfortunately, this wouldn’t be enough to win the game. The offense has to go through a fundamental change in philosophy at this point in the season. They have to take shots and create some kind of real threat against teams that can explode and put 14-21 points up in a hurry.
I don’t think this is the end of what has been a magical season for the Steelers in 2020. They have a ton of injuries right now. I understand that the standard is still the standard but something that drives me crazy about Mike Tomlin is that a lot of this shouldn’t just be blamed on them. When you are down to starting practice squad depth in the most crucial position group of the best defense in the league you aren’t going to be able to stop most of the offenses in this league. This team revolves around its defense and its defense revolves around its linebackers. I expect them to get healthier and perform very well again come playoff time.
