The Buffalo Bills return to Highmark Stadium Sunday after an exciting comeback win over the Baltimore Ravens. The Bills are now 3-1 but are still second in the AFC East behind the Miami Dolphins after their loss to Miami in Week 3.

The Bills are now preparing to play the Pittsburgh Steelers who are currently in the midst of a three-game losing streak after beating the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 1. The Steelers hoping to change their fortunes have made a change at quarterback and will now turn to Kenny Pickett.

The first career start for the rookie is just one of a number of storylines for the Buffalo Bills Week 5 matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Can the Buffalo Bills continue their success against rookie quarterbacks?

The Buffalo Bills under Sean McDermott have had good success against rookie quarterbacks and they will look to continue that trend on Sunday against the Steelers. Since McDermott became head coach, the Bills are 7-3 against rookie quarterbacks and one of those losses was last year against the New England Patriots when the weather had a major impact.

Last week against the Jets, Pickett did some good things but also threw three interceptions. When considering it is a road game and the Bills have a full week to prepare this is a big challenge for the rookie and the defense should have success, even with the injuries they are dealing with.
