“The confidence is there, but you can’t kick your own ass, and that’s what we’re doing right now,” Heyward advised the media postgame.
There was once without a doubt some reality to Heyward’s commentary on Sunday and it began early on Sunday.
After suffering to haul within the opening kickoff, Buffalo began their opening pressure at the two backyard line. Back-to-back performs for no yards had the Steelers in a scenario the place they can have compelled a punt and set themselves up with terrific box place with yet another forestall. That didn’t occur, alternatively.
Instead, Allen discovered Gabe Davis downfield and hooked up with the receiver on a 98-yard ranking over Levi Wallace and Tre Norwood.
Davis’ 2d ranking was once any other case of the Steelers kicking their own ass in some way.
The receiver were given open deep downfield and grabbed an Allen lengthy ball with one hand. As he seemed to safe the ball, Minkah Fitzpatrick were given his fingers at the ball in what can have been an interception. Davis, alternatively, ripped the ball away after all zone for a 62-yard ranking. Two alternatives to lend a hand their offense as an alternative ended in 14 issues for the Bills.

When Allen wasn’t throwing, Buffalo ran the ball smartly.
The run sport confirmed indicators of lifestyles after a sluggish get started this season as smartly. All 3 of the Bills’ backs averaged seven yards in keeping with lift or extra and rookie James Cook scored a 24-yard landing within the fourth quarter to report Buffalo’s first offensive landing that didn’t contain Allen.
Part of Buffalo’s good fortune transferring the ball at the floor and throughout the air is going to the workforce’s offensive line which turns out to be jelling. Josh Allen didn’t take a sack within the matchup and ended up taking only one hit within the win.
At 1-4, there are without a doubt some cracks in Pittsburgh’s basis. The just right information for the workforce is that they received’t see many groups like Buffalo’s once more this season.
