Pittsburgh Steelers

The Buffalo Bills and Pittsburgh Steelers have faced each other in primetime each of the past two seasons. In fact, their matchup in 2019, was not originally a primetime game but was flexed into that spot with both teams in playoff contention.

This is a matchup that makes sense as both teams look set to remain in playoff contention again this season. The Steelers haven’t lost much on their roster and are bringing back Ben Roethlisberger, who potentially could be playing his final season with the Steelers or even in the league.

The formula is there to create excitement by positioning it in the second half of the season as there will likely be plenty riding on this matchup. Last year, the game between these two teams had major implications in terms of seeding and they could potentially have a similar situation this coming season.
