Bills Vs. Steelers: NFL Week 12 Previews

Ten games down, six to go in the 2010 NFL season. The Pittsburgh Steelers (7-3) are in great shape to return to the playoffs after failing to qualify for the postseason for the first time since Mike Tomlin was named head coach in 2007. Their Week 12 road test against the Buffalo Bills won't be as easy as it might seem on paper. The Bills (2-8) have won their past two games, and sport a dangerous passing attack that will challenge the Steelers' secondary. 

More previews to come, but for now, here's a few facts, trends and figures about the Steelers and Bills series history, as well as up-to-date season stats for both squads.
