PITTSBURGH – It was a funeral-like atmosphere in the Pittsburgh locker room following the Steelers 17-10 loss to Buffalo. A national audience witnessed the Steelers fail to win a game that could’ve basically secured them a spot in the playoffs and they weren’t making any excuses after the game.
Cam Heyward, who takes pride in being one of the most vocal leaders on the team, made it very clear he isn’t supporting any opinion that revolves around blaming only the offense for the loss to the Bills.
“We should’ve got off the field more,” was Heyward’s emphatic response to a question about if he was frustrated with the offensive turnovers. The veteran defensive end was making reference to the defense not getting enough stops in a close game.
It’s expected that a leader like Cam Heyward isn’t going to allow one player, or even one unit, to take all of the blame. But quarterback Devlin Hodges, who threw 4 interceptions on the night, also knows he needs to be better. Hodges put the game on his shoulders, but then mentioned how several of his teammates came up him to express their support moving forward.
Despite the loss, safety Terrell Edmunds can still appreciate how special it was o play against his brother Bills linebacker Tremaine Edmunds on Sunday Night Football.
