After the Buffalo Bills sealed the win against the Pittsburgh Steelers, fans immediately began purchasing tickets for the next week's massive showdown against the Kanas City Chiefs. But how did we to this point? How did the Bills get the win against the Steelers? What players made it possible and who impressed us the most in the wildcard battle?
There were several players that you could put on this list, but there were a handful that made some huge plays in the game. What made this performance all the more impressive for the Bills was Buffalo's offense moved the ball using several members of the offense. Stefon Diggs was still targeted a team-high nine times, which led to seven receptions and 52 yards. But Allen targeted nine different players with his 30 pass attempts.
They also used James Cook and the running game very well, handing him the ball 18 times and he turned that into 79 yards, for a 4.4 yards per carry average. The defense was solid once again, however, several players on the defensive side went down with injuries, so we'll have to keep an eye on these guys throughout the week, plus the players that didn't play in this game to start, due to injuries.
I've got five guys here that I think were pivotal in the Bills' win against the Steelers and it will be vital some of these guys step up next week against the Kansas City Chiefs as well but until we there, let's get into the five players that impressed me in Buffalo's Wildcard win.
