The Bills used Devin Singletary and James Cook most on the ground. This season, Buffalo will use Cook as the lead back, with Damien Harris and Latavius Murray as backups.

In the preseason opener, Buffalo used Matt Barkley, and he played well. The backup threw 172 yards on 14 out of 15 passes and two touchdowns.

Buffalo saw KeeSean Johnson put together a solid game with three receptions and 42 yards. Tyrell Shavers and Dezon Patmon were the recipients of touchdown passes in the game.

Steelers looking to Get Back to Postseason

For the Pittsburgh Steelers, Mike Tomlin wants to put to rest the questions of how well they will perform at the quarterback spot. He has trust in his leader Kenny Pickett.

Pickett played a little in the preseason opener, completing six of seven passes for 70 yards and a score. Mason Rudolph came in after and did well with 132 yards and a touchdown.

The two touchdowns for the Steelers via the air came from Calvin Austin III and George Pickens. Pickens is projected to be the Steelers’ top receiver, along with Diontae Johnson, in 2023. On the ground, Pittsburgh saw Anthony McFarland rush for a score.

Pittsburgh starts the 2023 regular season at home against the San Francisco 49ers. The next week, they will host the Cleveland Browns.
