The Pittsburgh Steelers won’t play their Week 13 game until later this evening but they did manage to get a little help Sunday afternoon in the Wild Card race thanks to the Buffalo Bills beating the Houston Texans 30-21.
Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor connected with tight end Charles Clay from 40 yards out with 1:53 left in regulation to break a 21-21 tie and Buffalo added a late field goal to seal the deal. Taylor also added two other touchdown passes in the game while running back LeSean McCoy chipped in 112 rushing yards in the win.
The Texans entered Week 13 as the No. 6 seed in the AFC and their loss Sunday now drops them to 6-6 on the season. Their loss Sunday to the Bills also ensures that they will end Sunday behind Buffalo in the AFC Wild Card race.
At best, the Steelers will end Sunday as the No. 6 seed in the AFC if they’re able to beat the Indianapolis Colts tonight and the Kansas City Chiefs lose or tie the Oakland Raiders.
The (6-6) Bills will play the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 14 on the road while the Texans will host the New England Patriots.
