Steelers' stingy pass defense looks to frustrate Bills' Allen

The Pittsburgh Steelers have allowed less than 300 yards passing in 27 straight games, and look to frustrate Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen in the season opener.

Betting Impact:

Per DraftKings, Josh Allen's over/under for passing yards in their Week 1 matchup is 281.5. Allen threw for an average of 284 yards per game last year, and his 4,544 passing yards ranked fifth in the league. The Steelers lost cornerback Steven Nelson in July as he signed a one-year deal with the Eagles. Thus, a secondary that let Stefon Diggs explode for 130 yards in their Week 14 matchup last season will have to find ways to slow him down this year. Allen went 24-for-43 and 238 yards against the Steelers last year, but bettors need to factor in that the game was played in December in frigid temperatures.
