The same Pittsburgh Steelers defense that allowed all-time franchise highs of 55 points and 610 total yards of offense in a loss at New England the previous weekend limited Buffalo to 10 points and 227 yards on Sunday in a 23-10 victory over the Bills at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.

The Steelers sacked rookie quarterback E.J. Manuel three times and held the Bills (3-7) to just three conversions on 14 third-down attempts.

Offensively, the Steelers found the end zone on a five-yard pass from Ben Roethlisberger to Jerricho Cotchery, a four-yard run by Le’Veon Bell and three field goals by Shaun Suisham.  Buffalo was held to just a field goal until Manuel found Chris Gragg with a touchdown pass on the final play of the game.

For Pittsburgh (3-6), Roethlisberger  completed 18-of-30 passes for 204 yards with one interception.  Antonio Brown caught six passes for 104 yards, and returned a pair of punts for a total of 74 yards.  Bell carried the ball 22 times for 57 yards, and caught three passes for an additional 39 yards.

Manuel was 22-for-39 for only 155 yards with one interception.

Next Sunday, the Steelers will host Detroit (6-3) in another 1:00 PM game at Heinz Field.
