The Buffalo Bills edged the Pittsburgh Steelers 17-10 Sunday, and that win came despite quarterback Josh Allen only throwing for 139 yards. A lot of it was about the Bills’ defense, which held Steelers’ quarterback Devlin Hodges to 23 completions on 38 attempts (60.5 percent) for 202 yards with one touchdown and four interceptions. Here are those picks:

For the Bills, Allen finished with 13 completions on 25 attempts (52 percent) for 139 yards, with one touchdown and one interception. But that wound up being enough thanks to the Buffalo defense. And that means the Bills are heading back to the playoffs for the second time in three years (they also made it in 2017, when they lost to the Jacksonville Jaguars in the wild-card round). So even poor quarterback production can be okay if your defense comes through this way.
