Calling this Pittsburgh Steelers offense anything but a work in progress is being disingenuous. It clearly is. They have multiple starting offensive linemen who are very much figuring out the difference between college and the pros, for one thing. And running back Najee Harris is finding out in a hurry just how much “more fair” the competition level is in the NFL compared to Alabama.
But they did enough, in coordination with their offense and special teams, to pull out a strong team victory today against a very tough Buffalo Bills team that returns 21 of 22 starters from a 13-3 year in 2020, with the only new starter being none other than Emmanuel Sanders, who had some clutch catches in the game.
