Buffalo has seen its share of problems this season as they have lost their starting QB as well as a few offensive weapons, but defensively they are sound, moving well and stopping the run. They have shown issues against the passing game but luckily that is not really an attribute that the Steelers have this season. With a 2-6 record and limited on both sides of the ball this Steelers teams looks to get through this year as quickly as possible in order to forget it and move on.
Buffalo Bills vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
1:00 PM ET, November 10, 2013
Heinz Field, Pittsburgh, PA
The Bills defense was great last week against the undefeated Chiefs, losing basically because their offense coughed up the ball with 2 interceptions, returned for touchdowns and a lost fumble. The problem they are having is that they cannot seem to move the ball in order to score and if the defense comes away with a turnover, unless it comes with a touchdown it really does not mean all that much. This team must find a way to score the football on offense if they want to win games.
The Pittsburgh Steelers benched their only go to receiver in last week’s game for the fourth quarter because he ran the wrong route; this has been the story for this team´s offense all year, wrong plays, no QB protection and un-necessary penalties. Defensively this team as allowed their opponents the second most rushing yards in the League while the fourth more in the passing game, opening up the middle with their safety blitz.
What to Expect:
The Steelers are playing at home and will have what´s left of their fan base their to cheer them on, this will be one of the sloppiest game of the season as both teams will go three and out on several occasions. I still like the Bills to get the win in this game because of their defense; it might turn out to be the spark that gets this offense over that Steelers hump, that very small hump. My opinion in this one is the Bills +3, winning by a late field goal, with the total at 43.5; I really don’t have an opinion there.
