Its a story Bills fans are all too familiar with.
In a must win game to keep their slim playoff hopes alive… Buffalo lays an egg as the infamous drought goes to 17 seasons.
Ben Roethlisberger and Le’Veon Bell did whatever they wanted to in the snowy conditions at New Era Field.
Lorenzo Alexander would give the Bills a quick glimpse of life when he intercepted Roethlisbergerr in the red zone on the Steelers opening drive of the game.
But Buffalo would give it right back after three plays and Bell would score his first touchdown of the game on the Steelers second drive.
Trailing 14-0 in the second quarter Stephon Gilmore would pick off the Steelers quarterback which would spark the Bills offense. Tyrod Taylor would find Sammy Watkins in the endzone to cut the lead to seven, but that’s as close as Buffalo would get.
Buffalo would get second half touchdown from Charles Clay and LeSean McCoy would score with 1:25 remaining in the game to make it a one score game but, Dan Carpenter’s onside kick went out of bounds.
Bell would rush for 238 yards on the ground and had 298 total yards of offense. The Bills as a team had 275 yards.
Rex Ryan becomes the first coach in franchise history to allow two 200 yard rushers in one season.
