Though they’re 2-0 and a nice little worst-to-first candidate to begin the season, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have still only beaten Cleveland and Carolina while avoiding the league’s truly heavy hitters. That changes this week and the standings should as well. The Pittsburgh Steelers is a battle-tested grinding team designed specifically to smother the life out of upstart opponents like Tampa Bay. Expect exactly that … effectively, if not prettily.
- Bucs Nation: Pittsburgh 13, Tampa Bay 10
- Sports Network: Steelers 17, Buccaneers 9
- Stephen Holder: Steelers 17, Bucs 16
- Joel Thorman: Steelers by a touchdown or less.
