Report: Weather has forced NFL to reschedule Steelers vs. Bills Wild Card matchup

For the last week, the possibility of blizzard-like conditions hitting Orchard Park at the time of the Pittsburgh Steelers Wild Card showdown with the Buffalo Bills has been looming.

There’s been constant communication between government officials and the NFL as to whether to change the location or the date of the game.

And now it has. Per Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Joe Rutter, the New York governor’s office has announced the Steelers and Bills game will now kick off Monday at 4:30 p.m.

Steelers and Bills will now play Monday at 4:30 pm, according to the New York governors office.

Deebo predicts Packers-Cowboys wild-card round winner originally appeared on NBC Sports Bay Area

Deebo Samuel and the NFC’s No. 1 playoff-seeded 49ers will enjoy watching the NFL’s Super Wild Card Weekend from the comfort of their own homes as they await their first playoff opponent.

Two of the three NFC matchups kick off on Sunday, starting with the Green Bay Packers vs. Dallas Cowboys at 1:30 p.m. PST at AT&T Stadium followed by the Los Angeles Rams vs. Detroit Lions at 5:15 p.m. PST at Ford Field.

The 49ers wide receiver joined Kay Adams on the “Up & Adams” show on Tuesday, where he was asked to give his prediction for the first matchup between the Packers and Cowboys.

“You got Dak [Prescott] and CeeDee [Lamb], CeeDee is playing at the top of his game right now, which is good for him and Dak is playing well as well,” Samuel said.Steelers vs. Bills: 5 Questions with the Enemy ahead of Super Wild Card  Weekend

“It’s the playoffs, everybody knows it’s one-and-done, you never know what you’re going to get … I think Cowboys on this one.”

Dallas, the NFC’s No. 2 playoff seed, will host the No. 7 and final-seeded Packers at home where they have not lost a game this season.

Prescott, Lamb and the Cowboys started the 2023 NFL season with a 3-2 record after losing to Samuel and the 49ers in Week 5, but eventually leapfrogged the Philadelphia Eagles to claim the NFC East division title and the conference’s second-best playoff seed.

If Green Bay can pull out the victory, it will face off against the 49ers next weekend in the divisional playoff round. If the Cowboys win, as Samuel predicts, their only shot at revenge against San Francisco would come in a possible NFC Championship Game clash.

Dak Prescott: If Mike McCarthy’s on the hot seat, I should be, too

The Cowboys gained 510 yards Sunday, with Dak Prescott completing 41 of 60 passes for 403 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions. Numbers are deceiving.

The Cowboys trailed 41-16 heading into the fourth quarter and gained 216 yards, including 210 of Prescott’s passing yards and two passing touchdowns, in garbage time.

“I sucked tonight. That was it,” Prescott said. “We got it going a little bit late, but none of that mattered at that point. Fought. That’s all I really know how to do. But it’s about winning, and it’s about winning in the playoffs and getting to the last game and winning that as well. Yeah, tough.”

The Cowboys gave up the most points in the franchise’s postseason history, losing 48-32 to the Packers. It was a “stunning” result, which is the word owner Jerry Jones used multiple times in his 10-minute postgame media availability.

It also has coach Mike McCarthy’s future in doubt.

McCarthy has one year remaining on his contract, but Sunday’s embarrassing loss might outweigh the three consecutive 12-win regular seasons he has had. Jones said he has nothing scheduled with McCarthy yet.

“There’s nothing set on that,” Jones said. “What I had planned to do was be with him tomorrow going over how we played today and getting ready for the coming week. That’s what was on the agenda. Tomorrow, my agenda will be to dismiss the team.”

For what it’s worth, Prescott gave McCarthy a vote of confidence.

“He’s been amazing,” Prescott said. “I don’t know [McCarthy’s future] can be [in doubt], but I understand the business. In that case, it should be about me as well, honestly. That guy, I’ve had the season I’ve had because of him. This team has had the success they’ve had because of him. I understand it’s about winning the Super Bowl, and that’s the standard of the league and damn sure should be the standard of this place. I get it, but add me to the list in that case.”

Prescott’s future after next season is in doubt.

He has a $59.455 million cap hit next season, so he will be the Cowboys’ quarterback in 2024. But what about his future beyond that? Are the Cowboys willing to commit more than $50 million a season on a long-term deal for him?

Prescott put together an MVP-type season, with a league-leading 36 touchdowns and nine interceptions. But he is 2-5 in the postseason in his eight seasons, with nothing better than a trip to the divisional round.

Jones was asked whether Prescott’s performance Sunday would change his mind about a long-term commitment to his quarterback.

“I really haven’t thought about this at all. So, I won’t comment on it since I haven’t thought about it,” Jones said. “My complete thought for the last several weeks have totally been around anticipating and planning on advancing from this game to another game here at the stadium since we found out we were going to have this home field. So I’m going to back to the complete bottom of my thought process to think about anything other than next week’s game here.”
