The Steelers fall to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday Night Football as their downward spiral continues.

It was another relatively boring game to watch for the fans cheering on the Steelers. The offense continues to be inept and shows its warts. The defense was able to hold the Bills offense to 19 points despite having key injuries. They caused turnovers and held the high powered offense to little production under the circumstances. The offense for Pittsburgh continued to not take advantage of the defense’s amazing play and dismantled what could’ve been a big win for the team.

Ben Roethlisberger struggled in this one. He was not the only concern as the rest of his comrades also carried the shameful mantel. The quarterback played his worst game of the season when the team needed a big win. He threw a pick-six right before halftime that changed the momentum for the entire game. That alone might have caused the Steelers to lose.

Mike Tomlin got blown up on the sideline by a Bills player, that was the omen for this matchup. His team would not show complementary football and would get curbed stopped in the end. The second half was dominated by the home team and it was not close. They controlled every aspect of the game and it was tough to watch. The offense is so immune to making routine and good plays that it will continue to struggle. Yes, the team is 11-2 but it is having major issues arise at the worst time possible. They have had a tough last couple of games and it could result in them limping into the playoffs.

Avery Williamson was the player of the game versus the Bills.

Williamson played well in his first game with the green dot. He called the plays for the defense and did his job well. There were no breakdowns or communication woes and that was a promising sight. The former Jet came over via trade before the deadline and the fact he could get the defense set with only weeks to prepare is very impressive. The unit played well but only saw the offense fail them in the end.

The linebacker finished the game with a stat sheet of 11 total tackles, nine of those tackles solo, and one quarterback hit. His performance was varsity as Tomlin likes to say. Unfortunately, the offense has returned to last year’s form and is beginning to fail this team again. They will need to be fixed quickly as the season is starting to wrap up. This cannot be another one and done year in the playoffs again.
