1. Josh Allen vs. Steelers secondary
Pittsburgh may have had their share of issues on offense but their defense has not let them down.
They’re top-10 this season and according to NFL.com, they’re No. 5 in pass defense, giving up just under 210 yards per game. Their in-season acquisition of Minkah Fitzpatrick has looked absolutely brilliant as the entire secondary has played better with him there as a quarterback of the defense.
Buffalo understands all too well the talent he possesses as Fitzpatrick comes from the AFC East, formerly a member of the Miami Dolphins.
There’s another well-known face in the secondary as Tremaine Edmunds brother Terrell Edmunds is one of the top tacklers on the Steelers. All the talent back there poses quite a threat for quarterback Josh Allen.
He needs to play better against the Steelers than he did Baltimore in order for his Bills to win. That means he has to find a way to get the ball out quickly and allow his receivers to get into a good rhythm. He also needs to find a healthy balance between taking shots when they’re there and playing it safe.
Allen can’t allow guys like Fitzpatrick to take over the game but he also can’t play it too conservative and take his playmakers out of the game.
There will be plenty other matchups to watch but if the Bills can find a way to win these three, they should be able to pull off a road win.
