LATROBE, Pa. (AP) - The Buffalo Bills are spending two days practicing with the Pittsburgh Steelers in hopes Pittsburgh's championship tradition rubs off.
There's one department where the Bills already appear to be ahead of the six-time Super Bowl champions: defense.
Buffalo finished second in the NFL with 57 sacks and eighth in takeaways last season, well ahead of the Steelers in both categories. Pittsburgh ranked near the bottom in both categories in 2013, two of the main reasons the Steelers slipped out of the top 10 in total defense for the first time this decade.
The Bills say their talented front seven allows the secondary to be aggressive, a mindset Pittsburgh hopes to adopt in 2014.
The teams meet at Heinz Field on Saturday.
