The Pittsburgh Steelers managed to sneak into the postseason thanks to some timely losses from their AFC counterparts.
The Steelers somehow won 10 games during the 2023 NFL season despite several injuries and quarterback changes, but now they have a chance to continue to shock the world.
Unfortunately for them, they hit the road to take on a Buffalo Bills team that ended the regular season playing some of their best football.
Pittsburgh might not be able to score as efficiently as Buffalo, but they’ve got the personnel to make it a tough, drag-it-out sort of game that they’re experts in winning.
However, the weather in New York has only gotten worse with snow storms so the NFL decided to postpone the game until Monday afternoon.
Former Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell believes the two teams should’ve still played the game at it’s normal time via his personal Twitter account.
“the game gettin moved is kinda wack not gonna lie .. snow games are the best games,” Bell tweeted.

Bell’s comments shouldn’t be very surprising given that running backs typically get more carries in snow games.
The cold weather makes it much more difficult to get air under the football, so teams generally lean on their running backs to move the football.
It remains to be seen how much delaying the game one day will ease the field conditions, though the league and the city had to think about the fans and their safety.
For now, fans of both teams will just have to wait to see who advances to the next round.
