1.) Steelers’ offense averages just 18 points a game

Despite the defense for Pittsburgh being a wrecking crew, the same cannot be said for the offense. The Steelers have had three starting quarterbacks between Kenny Pickett, former Bills’ quarterback Mitch Trubisky, and now Mason Rudolph who has earned the starting job over the last few weeks.

The Steelers have managed to only score 30+ points in 2 of their games, both under Rudolph so there is some sign of life heading into this game. However, Rudolph has never played in a playoff game and will be introduced to the playoff world in front of Bills Mafia.

The Steelers have averaged just 18 points a game this season, which included putting up just 17 points against the Baltimore Ravens (who had backups in). Since their bye week, the Bills’ defense is allowing just 17 points a game and they have done so against offenses like Kansas City and Dallas.

The Bills have played great situational defense and if they are able to contain the run game of Najee Harris and Jaylen Warren, Pittsburgh may have a tough time moving the ball.
