Week 15: Bills at Steelers on SNF

Recommended Posts

I'm going to trust the Bills to win  They havent lost a game yet where I feel they were supposed to win this year.  Steelers defense is good and their special teams have been great

Honestly not too worried about this game. My final score prediction is something like 24-10. I think we totally shut down the Steelers offense and their backup QB, and the offense does just enough to slowly pull away. Similar to the Broncos game in a lot of ways. If our offense does exactly what it did today, as bad as it looked it will probably still be enough. The reason we are favored is Vegas is smart enough to see through Duck Hodges.

"Probably still be enough" won't get you very far in today's NFL.  I want my team to have a killer instinct, which we see very little sign of despite the record, i.e. barely enough is not good enough if you want to truly go places.

Not sure about this.... but I've been wrong about this team this year several times.

 

Really depends how Allen plays. Anything like today and they aren't winning that game.

The Pitt D is up there via DVOA with NE, SF, and BAL. I expect the offense to struggle again. Bills have struggled bad against the top 5 Defenses on the road. But Allen has been better in the road.

 

We need a win before heading into Gillette.

I think this game will be an ugly defensive slugfest that isn't going to be good for NBCs ratings

I think both defences will be tough and the score will be in the teens for both teams.

Its 50-50 to me who wins this game. I'm more confident they win in NE then I am them winning in Pittsburgh right now

Click on Bills to Win on ANY of their three remaining games and they are in the playoffs. Don't Worry - Be Happy!

 

 

Doesnt that mean titans or pitt also have to lose a game for that happen?

 

they are both have only 5 losses so far.

 

thats why winning next week is big

No. Titans play HOU twice in final 3 weeks, so if TEN is 11-5 that means HOU 10-6 at best. They would lose Tb to Bills . PIT can be 5 seed at 11-5

Kind of shocked Bills are favored.  The home Steelers have won 8 of 10 with second and third string QBs.  

Tomlin is doing a helluva job this year. Maybe his finest yet. But if we can’t beat a team led by devlin Hodges with this defense, I’ll have serious questions about our playoff legitimacy. Yes, they are at home with a great defense, but you have to figure out a way to get this done. Play like it means something.

Without looking, I imagine it's because the Texans and Titans play each other, thus making sure one of those 2 will have 6 losses

 

Edit: already answered should have kept reading the thread,

Go Bill's

Win and in, right? That makes this the biggest Bill's game of the century. 

Well since we played the Steelers and their third string QB, a third string rb.......feels like deja vu

If they lose out they still get in 56% of the time. Not that anybody wants to get in that way...

I keep seeing people call a Hodges 3rd string. If Rudolph is benched and Hodges promoted doesn’t that make Hodges 2nd string?

 

If Rudolph was hurt and that was the reason Hodges was promoted then he’d be the 3rd string QB.

At the start of the season Pitt quarterbacks were:

rothlesberger

rudolph

josh dobbs 

 

hodges was cut during preseason and eventually signed to the steelers practice squad.  After the start of the season dobbs was traded and Hodges signed to the team.  Then rothelesberger was injured.  So Hodges was fourth string at the start of the season.

That defense is playing lights out. TJ Watt is pretty scary. Even more scary if he’s taking on Ford one on one. They better learn from the film of this Baltimore game cause the blitz is coming next week too but it will be much better disguised. Baltimore didn’t even try to hide it lol just lined up and rushed right at us. Pittsburgh is coming from everywhere and Fitzpatrick is just playing centerfield knocking down passes. 
 

Luckily I like our chances vs the duck. 
If this defense can force Brady into his worst game ever, then contain Lamar mostly, I’d be pretty disappointed if they let up and got beaten by 3rd string duck

When’s the last time Buffalo beat Pittsburgh. Not since he 90s I believe. I’m very nervous about this game. Seems like they always have our number. 

 

Maybe it’s the BBFS in me, but I see us not making the playoffs and losing out 

The Bills are 2-10 all time in Pittsburgh. 1 playoff win 1992, 1 regular season win 1975. So 44 years since the Bills have won in Pitt in reg season.

I believe we win but im concerned about our Oline holding up against the blitz .

 

We also need to get back to Josh running the ball more, that didnt happen against the ravens, but was prominent in the three weeks before.

can he step up against a good defense and win the game on primetime? I'm tired of struggling to score 20 points per game with this offense meanwhile the Titans with Tannehill are putting up 30+ points every week for fun. 

 

 

 

Did you miss the previous 3 games ?? And how did Josh do josh do in the biggest primetime game of the season on thanksgiving??

Allen has yet to beat a playoff team in his career

 

Drew Lock today went on the road and beat a playoff team putting up 300+ yards. 

 

Oooh 300 yds :doh:

 

You related to Mike Schopp??

seriously!? What the hell is wrong with you people. How we did against the steelers in the past has nothing to do with this team and this regime. WE ARE GOING TO THE PLAYOFFS :wallbash:

Dabboll hasn't learnt anything all year lol

 

you saw first hand today how clueless he is. ravens send blitz from the first drive to the last and he didn't make a single adjustment to it. no screens, max protect, TE seam routes, quick slants. 

 

Dabboll is so out of his depth at OC its embarrassing. 

 

Maybe you should learnt proper grammar.
