If you thought things were already bad in Pittsburgh, it’s about to get much worse.
After losing to the Jets at home and falling to 1-3 on the season, the Steelers will take on Josh Allen and the Bills in Week 5. But will Buffalo overlook their opponent ahead of their rematch with the Kansas City Chiefs?

Steelers vs Bills Odds
The Bills are listed as 14-point favorites over the Steelers, which is hardly a surprise. Yes, it’s a massive spread, but Pittsburgh hasn’t shown that it can contend with a team of Buffalo’s caliber.

Steelers vs Bills Prediction
Bills 34, Steelers 17
By no means should this be a close game. Buffalo will be playing its second home game of the season against a vastly inferior team. In case you need a refresher, the Bills beat the wheels off of the Titans in a 41-7 victory back in Week 2. Their other three games have all been played on the road.
Meanwhile, the Steelers have recorded just six offensive touchdowns through the first four weeks of the season. Rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett provided a nice spark in Week 4 with two rushing touchdowns after Mike Tomlin removed veteran Mitchell Trubisky from the game at halftime.
Pittsburgh’s offense has more life with Pickett under center, and I don’t doubt that he’ll register a couple of scores in Week 5. But this Steelers defense is highly vulnerable without T.J. Watt, and Pickett’s rookie mistakes will likely lead to some easy scores for Buffalo.
There is some trap game potential here for the Bills — they play at Kansas City in Week 6, where they’ll look to avenge their loss from last year’s Divisional Round — but even an unfocused Bills team is better than this version of the Steelers.

Pittsburgh’s offense looked snappier with Pickett on the field this past Sunday. He looked more decisive than Trubisky, demonstrated immediate rapport with his receivers, and extended plays with his legs.
Assuming he draws the start, the Steelers will score more than they’re expected to with Pickett in for an entire game, even if the rookie does only offer a slight boost compared to Trubisky.
