Khalil Shakir

Entering this game, Khalil Shakir was expected to play a bigger role in the offense with Gabe Davis already ruled out. The second-year wide receiver has been very reliable over the last month of the season and caught his last 13 targets to end the regular season.

He continued that trend as he caught all three of his targets on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers but one of those targets were bigger than the rest. As the game went along, the Steelers kept chipping away at the lead and had just cut it to one score in the fourth quarter after Diontae Johnson's touchdown made it 24-17.

The Bills would answer back and got down to the red zone before Josh Allen threw a quick pass to Khalil Shakir. He would make the catch, break a tackle by Minkah Fitzpatrick and run into the end zone to essentially seal the victory.

Khalil Shakir may not see big target share in this offense but continues to make plays with every opportunity he gets.
