PITTSBURGH — The Steelers will go to Buffalo with the potential to play in the snow up in Orchard Park. With extreme wind gusts likely to come on top of that, the entire team will have to be prepared for another week of wet conditions that do favor a lot of offense. That could especially affect quarterbacks Mason Rudolph and Josh Allen.
The team worked on Wednesday at Acrisure Stadium to play in the elements. The grass fields at the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex are in bad shape, which Acrisure Stadium had to do for now. It seems that Pittsburgh wants to practice as much in the elements as they can to prepare for a big game against the Bills.
Mason Rudolph will have another test coming his way as he will have to whip through snow and wind of what appears to be one of the worst weather games in recent memory.
The Steelers and Bills faced each other this preseason in Pittsburgh, with the Steelers winning, 27-15 at Acrisure Stadium. They have played one another in four consecutive regular seasons. The Bills rolled to a huge 38-3 victory in Buffalo last season. The Steelers upset the Bills 23-16 to open the 2021 season. In 2020, the Bills beat the Steelers, 26-15 in Buffalo. Buffalo also won 27-20 in Pittsburgh in 2019.
Pittsburgh will now look to head to Buffalo and pull off the upset over a surging team that has won five straight, while Pittsburgh matches that with three straight wins since Mason Rudolph took over as starting quarterback.
