The good for the special teams was Isaiah McKenzie, who had a 75-yard return on the opening kickoff and finished with an average of 35.8 yards per kickoff. He looked more than capable of replacing Andre Roberts.
The other bright spot was Tyler Bass, who once again was automatic, making all three of his field goal attempts and one extra point attempt.
Unfortunately, it is hard to look past the block punt that resulted in a touchdown for the Steelers and essentially decided the game. The Steelers were able to come right up the middle to block Matt Haack. This drops the grade significantly for this week.
Buffalo Bills Overall Grade
The Buffalo Bills this week against the Pittsburgh Steelers looked like the Bills of 2019 where they relied on their defense to keep them in games and the offense did just enough to keep the game close. The offense couldn’t get much of anything going due in large part to the team’s inability to give Josh Allen time to make plays.
In the end, this game will hopefully serve as nothing more than a gut check, and the Buffalo Bills will get back to playing at a level they did last year starting next week against the Miami Dolphins.
