  • The Bills now have a 10-3 record for the first time in franchise history. The Bills are 10-3 or better for the sixth time (four times with 11-2 record – 1964, 1988, 1990, and 1991 - and one year at 10-2-1 - 1965).
  • The Bills post their first winning streak vs. Pittsburgh since a four-game streak between 1986-1992
  • This is Buffalo's second straight win on Sunday Night Football (also beat Pitt. 17-10 on road, 12/15/19) and improved to 12-10 all-time in Sunday primetime games.
  • Tyler Bass kicked a 34-yard field goal at the end of the first half to give the Bills their first points of the game. Bass kicked two field goals in the game and now has now kicked 11 consecutive field goals which is the longest streak by a Bill since Stephen Hauschka made 17 in a row in games 1-12, 2018.
  • With less than a minute left in the first half, Taron Johnson picked off Ben Roethlisberger and returned it 51 yards for a touchdown. It is the Bills first defensive touchdown since Jordan Poyer in Week 16 of the 2017 season. It was Johnson's second career interception and his first touchdown.
  • Josh Allen opened the second half 8 for 8 for 104 yards and two touchdowns. With those two touchdowns, Allen now holds the Bills franchise record for most total touchdowns in a season with 35. He surpasses Jim Kelly's 34 touchdowns in the 1991 season.
  • Stefon Diggs ended the day with 10 receptions for 130 yards. With 1,167 receiving yards, he established a new personal high in receiving yards in a single season. He also tied Eric Moulds' team record with 100 receptions in a season (2002).
  • Gabriel Davis now has a touchdown catch in three straight games, and he is the first Bills rookie to do so since David Nelson in 2010. Davis, Nelson, and Lee Evans (2004) are the only Bills rookies to ever tally such streaks. Davis now has six touchdowns receptions which leads the team.
  • Matt Milano sacked Ben Roethlisberger for a 10-yard loss in the third quarter. That brings Milano's sack total to 2.5 on the season, and now he has 5.0 in his career.
  • Cole Beasley finished this game with five catches for 41 yards. With 838 receiving yards on the season, he established a personal best for receiving yards in a season, surpassing the 833 yards he had in 2016 with Dallas.
  • Levi Wallace intercepted Ben Roethlisberger in the fourth quarter. This was Wallace's second interception of the season and the fourth of his career. The Bills now have takeaways in eight straight games and have multiple takeaways in four of the last five games.
