Steelers at Bills – Sunday, Sept. 12 (1:00 EST)

The Steelers and Bengals play at the same time on Sunday but Pittsburgh’s matchup against the Bills should be a fun one. Both teams made the playoffs last year and the Bills became a favorite team amongst the country, as they won the division for the first time since the turn of the millennium.

Pittsburgh started off the 2020 season strong, going 11-0 but then struggling down the stretch. Their season ended with an embarrassing home playoff loss to the Browns and now they’ll look to prove that the 2020 season wasn’t a fluke and they are the same team that went undefeated through the first part of the season.

It won’t be easy to do so in Week 1, as the Bills are probably the team with the best chance to dethrone the Chiefs in the AFC this year. Pittsburgh is a 6.5-point underdog to Buffalo, per WynnBet, and that makes sense considering they’re on the road against a better team.

If there’s one team we know not to rule out, however, it’s the Steelers. They’ll be in the mix this year to make things interesting.
