Offense needs to get off to a fast start

One of the reasons the Buffalo Bills have not been able to win convincingly over the last three games has been due to the offense struggling early in the game. In the game against the Chargers, the offense didn't really show much until midway through the second quarter when Josh Allen found Gabe Davis on a big touchdown pass.

Then in Week 17 against the Patriots, the Bills defense shut down the Patriots offense and forced a number of turnovers early in the game. However, the offense only mustered 13 points on three turnovers before Rasul Douglas returned the fourth turnover for a touchdown.

Last week, against the Dolphins was a different story as the offense looked good and were moving the ball well. However, turnovers close to the red zone didn't let the Buffalo Bills build a lead and kept the game close.

On Sunday, if the Buffalo Bills can get out to a big lead it will force the Steelers to abandon the run, something they don't want to do, and put more pressure on Mason Rudolph to win the game. That seems like a winning strategy for the Bills.
