Steelers vs Bills: 5 crucial matchups to watch in Week 1
Josh Allen vs. Steelers pass rush
Josh Allen is one of the best quarterbacks Pittsburgh is going to have to face this season. The only way the Steelers can have a chance to contain Allen is by getting lots of pressure on him throughout all four quarters of the game.
Getting pressure on Allen is the key of the game for the Steeler’s defense if they want to keep the game interesting.
Keeping him inside the pocket will take away Allen’s ability to become mobile and make big throws downfield out of the pocket.
Steelers offensive line vs. Bills pass rush.
Pittsburgh’s offensive line is the biggest unknown factor coming into the 2021 campaign.
With the loss of Maurkice Pouncey to retirement, Al Villanueva signing elsewhere, and David Decastro getting cut at the beginning of training camp leaves no returning starters from the 2010 decade.
The Steelers will rely on two rookie linemen, Kendrick Green and Dan Moore, to improve on running the football this year.
What a great opportunity to see these guys compete against the fourth-best run defense last season.
