Steelers vs. Bills live score, updates, highlights from ‘Sunday Night Football’ game
A lot is riding on the Week 14 “Sunday Night Football” matchup between the Steelers and the Bills.
The Steelers (11-1) are coming off their first loss of the season, a 23-17 defeat to the Washington Football Team. They’ve already clinched a postseason berth but don’t want that loss to lead to a downward spiral ahead of the playoffs. It will be tough to avoid that on Sunday, though, because the defense has taken some big hits; starting linebackers Bud Dupree and Devin Bush are out for the season and Bush’s replacement, Robert Spillane, is also unavailable this week. Pittsburgh is also still in contention for the top seed in the AFC and a first-round bye in the playoffs; if the Steelers win out, they’d hold the tiebreaker over the Chiefs with an undefeated record against conference opponents.
Having to go up against Josh Allen and the AFC East-leading Bills (9-3) doesn’t make things any easier. Allen is coming off another great performance in Week 13 against the 49ers in which he threw for 375 yards and four touchdowns. With a win, Buffalo would move to just one game behind Pittsburgh for the No. 2 seed in the AFC.
