Top 5 reasons why the Bills will put on a show in the Steel City Week 15


5. The proudest parents in primetime

The storylines are endless for Buffalo's Week 15 primetime matchup against Pittsburgh. Not only is it the team's first appearance on Sunday Night Football in 12 years, it's also the first time three brothers will play in the same NFL game since 1927! An AFC showdown featuring Bills linebacker Tremaine Edmunds, Steelers safety Terrell Edmunds and Steelers running back Trey Edmunds, this is one game fans everywhere are going to want to stay up for. While undoubtedly special for all onlookers, no one will be prouder than the trio's parents who will be in attendance. It's safe to say that Ferrell Edmunds, a former NFL tight end, and Felicia Edmunds won't be picking sides in this one.

4. Let's hear it for the rookie

Bills defensive tackle Ed Oliver has been wreaking havoc lately on Buffalo's competition and proving what it means to be a first-round draft pick in the process. The University of Houston product has tallied 5.0 sacks so far this season and is showing no signs of slowing down. With .5 sacks, Oliver will have the most QB take downs for a rookie since DT Marcell Dareus in 2011. The NFL newcomer has the potential to upstage even that stat, however. If he gets 1.5 sacks or more, he'll have the most sacks by a rookie since 1987 when Cornelius Bennett compiled 8.5 and set the team record.

3. Josh 3000

Second-year quarterback Josh Allen has given fans a lot to be excited about since signing on with Buffalo. Playing his heart out, the signal caller has hit numerous milestones when it comes to his on-field performances. When he suits up on Sunday, the 23-year-old will have the opportunity to check off a few more. In what will be his 25th career start, Allen needs 263 yards passing to surpass 3,000 on the campaign. If he does so, he'll be just the third quarterback in Bills history (Tyrod Taylor, Doug Flutie) to record 3,000+ yards passing and 400+ yards rushing in the same season.

2. 'D' dominating behind enemy lines

The Bills have been nothing short of impressive on the road this season – especially when it comes to defense. Defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier's unit has found success in many areas, but one that stands out is points per game. Buffalo's 'D' is allowing just 15.2, making them the NFL's second-best road scoring defense.

1. Eyes on the prize

Back on the national stage for the second time in just three weeks, the Bills will take on a tough competitor in Mike Tomlin's Steelers. However, head coach Sean McDermott's team won't let the Sunday Night Football lights distract them from their mission. With a victory, Buffalo will advance to 10-4 on the season for the first time since 1999 and will solidify a place in the playoffs for the second time in three years.
