“The Bills' young pass rush answered some questions in August with the emergence of rookie Gregory Rousseau and A.J. Epenesa. Josh Allen looks ready to mount an MVP campaign. Yet I still think Pittsburgh can keep this game close because NFL games between good teams usually stay close, and the Steelers' talent drain has been overstated; their depth of weaponry and strong defensive front seven should not be underestimated. An underestimated Mike Tomlin traditionally does his best work.”...

“Steelers running back Najee Harris will have more than 100 all-purpose yards. It's no small task to ask a rookie to carry a team's ground game, but taken in the first round in April, Harris is expected to do exactly that. His first test comes against a Bills team that struggled with missed tackles a season ago and had an average run defense. In 2020, the Steelers combined for 47 rushing yards on 2.8 yards per carry in their loss to the Bills, but as a dual-threat runner and pass-catcher, Harris should drastically elevate the Steelers' offense -- even with a work-in-progress offensive line”...

“Highmark Stadium will be rocking on Sunday when the Bills open the 2021 season in a matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Both teams are considered playoff contenders in a loaded AFC and each team will be looking to get off to a fast start in Week 1. While there may be a feeling out period of sorts, I see the matchup being a high scoring affair. Both Josh Allen and Ben Roethlisberger have no shortage of weapons on offense. Look for the game to go back and forth early, but the Bills to pull ahead late. Buffalo’s defensive line has a favorable matchup on paper against the Steelers’ offensive line. That matchup leads to a few sacks and possibly turnovers via forced fumble or deflected pass. In the end, Buffalo’s offense is too much for the Steelers’ cornerbacks and Buffalo does enough to disrupt the Steelers on offense to put away the game”...
