After a delay due to the winter storm in Buffalo, the Steelers will get set to face the Buffalo Bills in a tough matchup on Monday. While they are heavy underdogs, if Pittsburgh does win, they will have to turn their attention to the divisional round quickly as they get back to Pittsburgh.
The Steelers or Bills will be on a short week no matter who wins the game on Monday, but no matter who wins, they will play on Sunday, CBS Sports reports. If the Steelers were to win, they would head to Baltimore to play the Ravens. Pittsburgh has defeated Baltimore twice, though the second time was against their backups. They knocked off Lamar Jackson and the Ravens in October 17-10 after the Ravens receivers dropped numerous passes, allowing Kenny Pickett to hit George Pickens late for the touchdown.
But Pittsburgh will have to win in wintry conditions in Buffalo first, especially after a delay. They had already arrived in Buffalo more than 24 hours before getting to the city.
The Steelers have had a playoff game moved recently due to weather. Their road playoff game against the Kansas City Chiefs in 2016 was moved to a later time on the same day.
The last time the Steelers had a game move day was when their game against the Baltimore Ravens in 2020 was postponed multiple times due to COVID-19 issues on the Ravens. That game ended up being played on Wednesday afternoon. Now, if they win, they will have their third date of the season with their biggest rivals.
