2 units on Game Total UNDER PICK (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: LOSS
Many feel that this Buffalo team can turn the corner this season after a 6-10 campaign from a year ago. They haven't shown a heck of a lot in their first two here at 0-2. Chan Gailey's teams have won just three NFL preseason games in three years, but two of them are in Week 3. And with Pittsburgh in, this is a stern test for a dress rehearsal, as the Steelers are all about defense. At 17-8 in the NFL preseason since his tenure began in Pittsburgh, Mike Tomlin has shown a penchant to win. Remember back in Week 3 of the 2009 season, the Steelers came to Buffalo and held the Bills to just eight first downs, and 0 points on just 135 yards gained from scrimmage. A repeat is certainly not out of the question. The Steelers have shown their true colors in Week 3, allowing an average of just 15.4 points per game the last eight preseasons in Week 3. Play this one UNDER the total.
