The Steelers lace 'em up against the Buffalo Bills, a team they've beaten nine of the last 10 times they've played, including four of the last five.

Buffalo couldn't have come closer the last time they played; having to painfully watch wide receiver Steve Johnson drop a touchdown pass all alone in the end zone in overtime couldn't have been a fun experience.

Buffalo's much better than they were last time, and the Steelers have a very underrated opponent on their hands. Their saving grace could be what they're able to do to rookie quarterback E.J. Manuel, who squares off facing a 2-16 record among other rookies against Dick LeBeau's defense since 2004.

Something's gotta give here.

Inactives for this game:

QB Landry Jones, WR Derek Moye, CB DeMarcus Van Dyke, TE Rich Gordon, LB Kion Wilson, NT Hebron Fangupo and LB Chris Carter.

We'll have the second half thread up, so plan to move there during the halftime show. Also, we'll have the gamer and Winners and Losers posted shortly after the game, so stick around BTSC, we'll be here all day.
