Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Pittsburgh Steelers, last game of the third week, Mondays are always interesting because some team is looking for something they could not find during the previous weeks, and this time it’s the Steelers who are looking for the first win of the season after starting with a draw and a loss.
Pittsburgh Steelers: We want a victory.
The Steelers this season did not have a good start like last season with two wins, one against the Browns and another against the Vikings. The first game of this season was also against the Browns, but now it is a new team, with a new strategy and eager to win games like never before. The Steelers suffered a 21-21 draw against the Browns under Tyrod Taylor, and in the second week they lost 37-42 at home against the Kansas City Chiefs. Since the defeat against the Chiefs the offensive strategy has had to improve, but they remain the same, it is solid and the average points per quarter has always been between 4.5 and 5.0 per game.
Ben Roethlisberger is still the same, he is not the best quarterback, but he does the necessary work for the team to score the points to tie or win a game. This year has not had the best start to the season with an average of 61.4% in full passes, but the yards are already almost over one thousand with 787. The problem of Roethlisberger this season has been the interceptions with a total of 3 (all against the Browns) and the low effectiveness per game.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Our record is untouchable.
The Buccaneers want to do everything necessary to keep the Steelers from winning at home today. So far the record is perfect, not only for being two victories, but because those victories were against two dangerous teams of the league. The first game was against the Saints 48-40, they won the first half by very little, but the defense matuvo the result and the Saints just scored 16 points in the second half. Against philly it was also a tight game, 27-21 at the end of the game, they won the first half and the defense did the same job of keeping the result in the second half and not allowing many points.
Ryan Fitzpatrick will be available for this game after recovering from a knee injury. Ryan Magic has been playing as a starter after the injury of the team’s top quarterback, but Fitzpatrick has played well, 78.7% effective and 819 yards in two games, just an interception for him. For now it will remain the starter qb until the coach decides.
