The Buffalo Bills have a 7-3 lead at halftime over the Pittsburgh Steelers as Sunday Night Football has been a defensive battle between these two teams
It’s been a long time since the Buffalo Bills have been on Sunday Night Football and they have had some issues so far on offense. As for their defense, they look ready for the bright lights.
They have held their own against the Steelers offense and even forced a turnover right after the two-minute warning — which helped bail the offense out after a turnover of their own.
Quarterback Josh Allen scored on a short touchdown and that has Buffalo up by a score of 7-3 heading into the intermission. His score came on the ground, and the run has been the one thing working for them on offense so far.
As expected coming into the game, this one has been a defensive battle. Both the Bills and Steelers have tough defenses and that has been on display in this one.
Buffalo punted on their first two possessions while gaining just 28 yards on their first drive and 16 on the second. Pittsburgh didn’t have any more luck to start the game off.
Their first possession ended with an interception after gaining just 23 yards. Their second series was a three-and-out that gained nothing.
Neither team has been able to move the ball much since then, which is not surprising at all considering how dominant each defense has been all year. Pittsburgh has just 64 total yards on five drives whereas the Bills have 131 on six possessions.
Buffalo started this one out by receiving the opening kick off. That means they will be kicking off to Pittsburgh once the break is over.
