The Bills were one of the best stories of the 2020 NFL season. Ending a double-digit winning campaign for the second year in a row, Buffalo worked his way into the AFC Championship game with eight consecutive victories, tying his longest winning streak in franchise history.
The Bills fell to the Chiefs in the AFC championship game, although it looks like Buffalo has its best football on the horizon. Four of his five Pro Bowlers return from last season, including second-team All-Pro quarterback Josh Allen, who set franchise records for passing yards (4,544) and touchdowns (37) in 2020.
That positive outlook doesn’t appear to be the same for the Steelers, who failed after an 11-0 start in 2020 with four losses in their last five games.
Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is now 39 years old and running out of time to push into the playoffs. The Steelers haven’t won a postseason game since 2016 and have the toughest schedule in the league. according to CBS Sports, with 10 games against playoff teams from last season.
Pittsburgh’s tough roster will begin against Buffalo, who defeated it 26-15 at Bills Stadium on December 13 last season. Pittsburgh leads the all-time series between the two teams, 16-11, and won 11 of 12 meetings before its latest losses in 2019 and 2020.
