The Pittsburgh Steelers traveled to Buffalo for a prime time week 14 Sunday Night Football matchup against the Bills. And although they clinched a playoff spot earlier in the day, the Steelers would take their second loss in a row, 26-15.
Like last week against Washington, the Steelers looked tired and beatdown. After a back and forth three-and-outs for both teams, a 19-yard touchdown pass to James Washington put Pittsburgh on the board first in the second quarter. Pittsburgh’s only other score of the night was a pass to JuJu Smith-Schuster for a 3-yard touchdown from Ben Roethlisberger along with a two-point conversion to Eric Ebron.
The Bills trampled the Steelers in the second half, scoring two touchdowns and a field goal. Another key play for Buffalo was a 51-yard pick six late in the second quarter from Buffalos’ Taron Johnson after intercepting Ben Roethlisberger.
The Steelers now fall to 11-2 and into second place in the AFC behind the Kansas City Chiefs. Pittsburgh plays another primetime game on Monday, December 21 in Cincinnati against the Bengals.
