by December 14, 2020 0 comments

The Pittsburgh Steelers faced off against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday Night Football in week 14. The Steelers defense kept them in the game early on, but once Josh Allen and the Bills got going, the game got out of hand. Buffalo would go on to win 26-15 and deliver Pittsburgh’s second loss of the season.

Allen threw for 238 yards and two touchdowns, also adding 28 yards on the ground. Bills’ wide receiver Stefon Diggs was seemingly open every play, racking up 130 yards and a touchdown on 10 catches. Cornerback Taron Johnson had himself a night, taking an interception for a touchdown and adding seven tackles.

First Half

The first quarter was as defensive-minded as it gets. Over the first ten possessions of the game, both teams combined for eight punts and two turnovers. Pittsburgh was able to strike first off of a Bills fumble as Ben Roethlisberger found James Washington for a 19-yard touchdown. 

With under two minutes remaining in the first half, Buffalo drilled a field goal to cut the Steelers lead to four. In an attempt to score before the half, Roethlisberger threw an interception to cornerback Taron Johnson who returned it 51 yards for a touchdown. The Bills led 9-7 entering halftime.

Second Half

Buffalo started the second half on fire. Josh Allen connected with Gabriel Davis for a 13-yard touchdown and on their next possession, Allen found Stefon Diggs for another score. They led the Steelers 23-7.

Following two punts, the Steelers found hope after driving 81 yards down the field and scoring a Juju Smith-Schuster touchdown plus the two-point conversion. However, the Bills would intercept Roethlisberger for the second time, effectively ending the game 26-15.

Both teams will make the playoffs, however, the final three weeks of the season will determine which seed they’ll get.
