Steelers Versus Bills Winners And Losers


The Pittsburgh Steelers beat to the Buffalo Bills 23-10 Sunday and below is my list of winners and losers from the game. Feel free to add your own in the comments below.

Winners:

Antonio Brown – Brown continues to be the Steelers most productive player on offense and he caught another six passes for 104 yards Sunday against the Bills. In addition, Brown also added two nice punt returns totaling 74 yards with a long of 50.

William Gay – Gay led the team in tackles with 11 total and four of them were excellent run stops that went for 3, 3, -1 and -1 yards respectively. While he did have the early pass interference penalty early in the game, he more than made up for it.

Jonathan Dwyer – Dwyer continues to make the most of his limited playing time and against the Bills he had six carries for 38 yards. Four of those runs produced first downs.

Mike Adams – We will see what the all-22 tape shows us, but more than anything I want to give credit to Adams for two solid run blocks in the game. One of them was a pancake on the Le’Veon Bell touchdown and it was a thing of beauty.

Losers:

Heath Miller – Miller only caught one pass on five targets and once again his run blocking was severely lacking. He is most definitely not back to 100% just yet and this team really needs Matt Spaeth back soon in order to give him a few more snaps off during games.

Ben Roethlisberger – Maybe the wind had a little bit to do with it, but Roethlisberger wasn’t sharp at all with several of his throws. A few were low and the early interception was a result of him not looking off the safety. In addition, Roethlisberger was a bit careless with the football in the pocket a few times, but luckily it didn’t result in a turnover.

Fernando Velasco – Not a great game up the middle by Velasco up the middle as he gave up a few easy pressures and slipped off of several run blocks.

Jarvis Jones – Outside of his fourth quarter sack that he beat a running back on and another pressure, Jones was pretty much non existent in this game. He gave up the outside edge at least twice and his unnecessary roughness to start the second half got him an earful from head coach Mike Tomlin.

About Dave Bryan

I am, I'm me. 40 something, retired and a life long Steelers fan.
  • Paul

    Bills didn’t show up ready to play, the Steelers are are bad football team and the Bills thought they would win by walking out on the field

  • Shannon Stephenson

    I am glad you put Dwyer because except for 1 run he really made the most of every carry

  • chris ward

    Dwyer has been great on 3rd and short this year. It seems like every time Dwyer has been on the field this year it has resulted in a positive for the offense.

  • TheBlitz

    Winners: Defense

    Losers: Entire offense including offensive coordinator. This team’s ineptitude to convert TD is alarming week after week. In the 4th quarter they left points on the board although they were in the red zone on two occasions.

  • CrazyTerry

    Losers:
    Punter X: doesnt seem to matter who the Steelers have gotten since Sepulveda was cut. Might as well have kept sepulveda regardless of injuries and then use a substitute punter whenever he is injured. It’s not like they are stable at punter now.
    Heinz Field crowd: yes, people are disgusted. But on veterans day, the Steelers and their fans couldnt find a way to donate the unused SOLD season tickets for this one game for free oto the needy or maybe veterans or half price to other fans? Are our season ticket holders so lazy week after week that they have troubvle unloading their tickets online via stubhub, ticket exchange, craigslist to someone who doesnt want to pay full price but would still want to watch the game at a reduced price? So many empty seats. What a disgrace for a team still technically not out of hte playoff hunt. This is one of the worst stadiums and crowds when it comes to forcing the other offense to go to a silent count even prior to this game.

  • Ahmad

    Glad Dwyer makes the winners lists. I also like the way he finishes runs by lowering his shoulder into his opponents.

  • steeltown

    Winners: A.Brown, Cotchery, Bell, Dwyer, Heyward, Timmons, WillieG and for the most part the OLine, yes they gave up some sacks but overall they looked much improved regarding run blocking

    Losers: Buffalo Bills (haha couldn’t resist)

  • Jeff

    Bad team or not, the Steelers DID show up, and it was pleasant to see.

  • Superdriller316

    Me too… But if there is green grass behind the one guy, I’d like to see some shake and extra yards. If not, then snot bubbles are always great to see.

    Winners
    AB-Continues to dominate
    Timmons-Huge hit, 8 total tackles.
    Heyward-Bright spot, and bright future.
    Mike Tomlin-Could have let the Steelers pack it in, but they showed a lot of fight.
    Dick Lebeau-getting the defense back to basics, sound tackling.
    Losers
    Officiating crew-horrible touchdown call, the entire Bills offense it seemed committed a false start penalty.

  • 70’s Fan

    The blown ref call was disgusting. You wouldn’t see a missed call like that at a Pop Warner game!! The linesman should forfeit at least a portion of his pay. It was sickening how, after failing to flag the motion penalty, he so gleefully threw his hands in the air to signal the touchdown.

  • Showboogie

    I think Jason Worilds should be added to the winner list. He quietly had a good game 2 tackles .Set the edge on a few plays running plays as well. Got sum good pressure on the OB. I hope we can resign him next year.

  • AzheDraven

    When i see that 27 I just say to myself “Please dont fumble it, please dont fumble it” But still he had a great game

  • Shannon Stephenson

    The average HB loses a fumble about 0.65% of the time while Dwyer loses a fumble about 0.95% percent of the time. He isn’t great but he is far from awful. Redman had a 2.12%. Felix Jones has a 1.32% fumble rate. Adrian Peterson 1.4%, Ray Rice 0.60% and MJD 0.8% as a reference of some others, couldn’t find how many fumbles Bell had in college but from what i have heard he is pretty good at holding onto the ball but the point I was trying to make is that Dwyer isn’t poor at holding onto the ball.

  • Steeler Wheeler

    Big Ben = LOSER! What is your IQ, 12? Don’t you know the circumstance? Punt is OK, sack is OK, sack/flip/fumble/TD is bad. Hold the effing ball you moron.
