LeVeon Bell set the scene for Sundays matchup between rust belt rivals Pittsburgh and Buffalo.Its December football, the Steelers running back said. We understand everybody is fighting for position. We just want to get the job done. Thats all there is to it.The Steelers (7-5) have steered their season in the right direction, winning three straight after a four-game losing streak to move into a tie with Baltimore atop the AFC North standings and within one game of Denver for the final wild-card spot.We are in a good situation right now, but we obviously have to win this game and better, Bell said.Pittsburgh controls its fate over the final four weeks of this season, but could cede that control with a single loss.We always want to worry about whats going on in the stadium were in, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said. We dont want to have to look around. Weve done that in years past. For us to just have to go out and take care of our own business is good for us.The Bills (6-6) are further out on the fringe of the playoff picture, unable to catch New England in the AFC East and seventh in the wild-card race when tiebreakers are factored in.Buffalo likely needs to win its last four games to end the longest active playoff drought (16 seasons) in North American sports.But the Bills won four straight earlier this season, and enter a three-game home stretch hopeful they can repeat the feat.This experience right here could be the start of something new, Bills linebacker Lorenzo Alexander said. Thats what were trying to do and trying to establish. Take seize of it right now, this opportunity that we have. If we can do that, things start to turn around.Coming off two consecutive wins, the Bills led by two touchdowns on the road at Oakland last week before quarterback Tyrod Taylor and the Buffalo defense imploded, as head coach Rex Ryan put it, allowing 29 unanswered points.Buffalos passing offense ranks last in the NFL and the Bills are 14-12 with Taylor under center over the past two seasons. Taylors shortcomings have raised questions about whether the Bills should opt out of the lucrative contract extension they gave Taylor prior to the season.My future in Buffalo is this week against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Taylor said. Thats what matters the most. Other than that, I dont feel like talking about my contract. We still have games to play.Frustrated with further questioning about his future in Buffalo, Taylor abruptly ended his news conference Wednesday. Im done talking, he said while throwing down his practice jersey.Ryan defended Taylors play, noting injuries to receivers Sammy Watkins, Robert Woods, Percy Harvin and tight end Charles Clay, among others.I just think it is easy to sit back and be critical, but if you are playing without five receivers in the game, Ryan said, it is going to affect you.The Bills are optimistic Woods can return this week after missing two games with a knee sprain. It would be the first time since Week 2 the Bills have had Woods and top wideout Sammy Watkins in the lineup together.After averaging 34 points in their first four wins, the Steelers have not scored more than 28 points in each of their last three wins. A more balanced, ball-control offense has featured Bell more and more as winter approaches.Bell, a Central Ohio native, knows what it takes to thrive along the rust belt this time of year.I played high school football in this weather, he said. I was born into this. Buy Nike Sb . - The Washington Redskins have cut defensive lineman Adam Carriker and punter Sav Rocca.

This club is now ready, he told AAP.We have the team to achieve that. In saying that, its about hard work.City are two wins away from the 2016 FFA Cup, having drawn cross-town rivals Melbourne Victory in the semi-final of the competition, and van t Schip is eyeing it off.The first one we can do that is the FFA Cup and we more than understand - its important to the players, its important to the fans, its important to win silverware this year, he said.Of course, with expectation comes pressure.Van t Schip, in the final year of a contract with the club, suggested he knew the ramifications of falling short of the clubs lofty aims.I understand how things work, he said.Weve reached some goals in the way of how were playing. Last year, we had very good games, very entertaining.We also knew we were vulnerable in the way we defended as a team.The players that weve brought in, Im confident we will be there until the end.
