Bills 31, Steelers 17 | Result, Highlights, and Important Stats

Josh Allen, the quarterback, produced a series of spectacular plays, one of which was a 52-yard rushing score, the longest in Bills postseason history. In addition to adding 74 yards and a touchdown on the run, the quarterback completed 21–30 throws for 203 yards and three touchdowns.

After being outplayed by the Steelers on the first drive of the game, Allen and the Bills ran the offense almost flawlessly, averaging eight yards per play and capping it off with a huge throw to Dawson Knox to grab a lead they would not let up for the rest of the contest.

In the first half, the Bills defense forced three three-and-outs and had two takeaways, which the offense capitalized on. Terrell Bernard recovered the fumble that Pittsburgh WR George Pickens was forced to make by nickel CB Taron Johnson. The following play, tight end Dalton Kincaid was hit by Allen for a 29-yard touchdown after Sean McDermott successfully contested the first call on the field, winning the ball for his team.

In the end, the youngster caught three passes for 59 yards and a score.

After two drives, Pittsburgh tight end Pat Freiermuth and linebacker Bylon Spector seemed to rush after the stray ball, but the referees determined that it had already left the field of play.

After racing past cornerback Kyre Elam, who committed a defensive pass interference two plays later, Freiermuth was awarded a first down.

Shortly after, Elam exacted his revenge by stopping Rudolph in the end zone to set up the greatest drive of the Steelers’ half and return the ball to Buffalo.

After Elam’s spectacular rushing touchdown, Allen capitalized on the play, showing off in the goal zone as the Bills led 21-0.
