The Steelers trailed the Bills by 10 points at halftime in Buffalo before coming alive in the fourth quarter. Ben Roethlisberger hit Diontae Jones for a five-yard touchdown, then Pittsburgh blocked a Bills’ punt attempt and Ulysees Gilbert returned it nine-yards for a touchdown. Steelers would add a field goal as they came back to outscore the Bills by 23-6 in the second half en route to their first win of the season. 

The Raiders are also coming off a thriller after beating the Ravens in overtime 33-27 to open up Monday Night Football. Baltimore lead14-0 by the 8:52 mark of the second quarter, but Derek Carr and the Raiders just wouldn’t go away. After fighting back to tie the score at 17, then at 24, then against at 27, the Raiders forced overtime where Carr hit Zay Jones for a 31-yard touchdown pass and the walk-off win. 

Mike Tomlin and his coaching staff will likely structure their defensive gameplan around stopping Raiders’ tight end Darren Waller, a guy who Raiders’ coach Jon Gruden called “the best player he’s ever coached.” 

The inactives are as follows: 

Steelers: Bush, Haden, Haskins, Coward 

Raiders: Jacobs, Incognito, Kwiatkoski, Teamer, Bowers, Simmons, Square

Waller pulled in 10 catches for 105 yards and a touchdown against the Ravens. Meanwhile, the offensive minded Gruden will try to help his offense locate and avoid T.J. Watt who led the league in sacks last season with 15 and tallied two against the Bills last week. 

The Steelers are a 5.5-point favorite against the Raiders. The over/under is 47.

You can get your local CBS network's NFL games via Paramount Plus, if you want.

The NFL game broadcast rights have stayed similar season over season. CBS gets AFC games on Sunday afternoons, FOX has the NFC games, NBC has Sunday Night Football and some Thursday night football, while ESPN has Monday Night Football. Amazon Prime Video has some Thursday Night Football games, while the NFL Network will continue to offer a bunch of games throughout the year. 

So, that makes it really easy to recommend where cord-cutters should turn to watch the NFL season: Fubo TV. Built for all things sports, Fubo has all three of those local broadcasters, plus ESPN and NFL Network. That's why it's one of the best streaming services.

Sling TV doesn't have CBS (not without AirTV at least), so while that's one of our favorite services, it's not ideal for football fans.
