NFL: Buffalo Bills at Pittsburgh Steelers Philip G. Pavely-USA TODAY Sports

The Buffalo Bills had control of their playoff destiny, a spot in the Sunday Night Football limelight, and a match-up against a former practice-squad QB. They took advantage of all three of those scenarios to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in prime time and punch their ticket to the 2019 NFL Playoffs. It wasn’t the prettiest of victories, which is mostly according to the Bills’ playbook. The game was won by the defense, with their star cornerback, Tre’Davious White leading the way.

White picked off Steelers quarterback Devlin Hodges, a.k.a “Duck”, twice—once in the first quarter and then again in the fourth quarter. Those two interceptions gave White six on the season, which is tied for the league lead with former Bill Stephon Gilmore. Tre wasn’t the only Bills defensive back feeling a bit greedy on Sunday. Jordan Poyer and Levi Wallace both picked off Hodges, giving the Bills four interceptions on the night. It was the team’s first four-interception game since 2016.
