The Bills started their journey into the 2021 regular season on a dud. The Steelers were in town and handled the home team en route to a 23-16 win.
The Bills added a late field goal to keep the game closer than it really was and the outing wasn’t particularly good for the Bills beside a few flashes. Such a showing by both certainly caught some national recognition on Sunday afternoon.
With that, here are national media reactions to the Bills’ loss to the Steelers in Week 1:

Steelers defense has a bunch of DUDES

Biggest win of the day so far: @steelers going into Buffalo and winning a thumper, an excellent playoff tiebreaker to have in their back pocket the next 17 weeks.

I've said all offseason on Undisputed that Roethlisberger's Steelers will push Cleveland for the division title. They just upset Buffalo at Buffalo. Ben was Bradyesque. Look out.

TJ Watt is UNREAL 😳
Chases down Josh Allen for the strip-sack.

Josh Allen should be able to get some solid garbage time stats here to make his overall line look better than it currently does, which is just miserable. 26-47 for 229 yards, 1 TD, 0 INTs, 2 fumbles and a 75 rating.

What a catch by Johnson. This Steelers defense has been absolutely amazing today. Kept them in the game and now allowing Ben to make clutch situational plays
