Severe weather in Buffalo, New York has already changed things when it comes to when the playoff matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Buffalo Bills will be played.
The league was urged to change the date of the playoff game between these AFC heavyweights, which NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and company listened to, resulting in this game being set to be played at Highmark Stadium on Monday afternoon.
With the weather being a major concern for the traveling Steelers heading toward this playoff showdown in Buffalo, everyone is paying close attention to the team’s movements and whether everything is working out as planned without Mike Tomlin and his squad getting delayed for one reason or another.

Despite all the changes that have happened to the playoff matchup, nothing has changed on the outlook of the game, with the Bills expected to make easy work of the Steelers once things get underway on Monday in Buffalo.
Josh Allen and company are favored by a touchdown and a field goal (-10) to get the win over the Steelers on Monday, as Pittsburgh will be shorthanded without superstar linebacker T.J. Watt, who is dealing with a knee injury.
However, anything can happen in conditions like this during a game played outside in a playoff game with the season on the line.
