Week 14: at Buffalo Bills
All QB vs BUF
Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Ben Roethlisberger threw some amazing passes against the Steelers, ending up with a solid 24/36 for 289 yards, two TDs and one interception thrown, with two sacks taken for -17 yards. He found favorite Antonio Brown for one of the TDs (seven targets for 6/54/1 receiving), while ascendant tight end Ladarius Green (11 targets for 6/110/1 receiving) led the team in receiving and LeVeon Bell did some heavy lifting (seven for 6/64/0). Jesse James was fourth on the team with four targets for 3/32/0 receiving - despite the attritions among the wide receivers this year, Pittsburgh still has plentiful targets for Roethlisberger entering Week 14.
The Bills' pass defense did little to slow down Derek Carr and company last week, coughing up 19/35 for 260 net yards passing, two TDs and zero interceptions thrown, with zero sacks generated. Even though the Bills are third in the NFL with 33 sacks generated, they couldn't bust through the tough Oakland line. Pittsburgh has a similarly-tough front line (tied for second in the NFL with just 16 sacks given out this year). From Week 10 to Week 13 of the 2016 season (over the last four weeks, but includes 10 teams on bye during that time span - each team has at least three games played in the last four weeks), Buffalo has averaged 21.1 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (11th-most in the NFL); and 21.9 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (15th-least); with 4.5 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (seventh-least).
This looks like a neutral matchup for the Steelers' passing attack.
