Buccaneers vs. Steelers Score Update: Tie game after one quarter

After one quarter, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are tied 10-10 in Pittsburgh.

Gregory Shamus

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are off to a great start against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Gerald McCoy and Michael Johnson both sacked Ben Roethlisberger on consecutive plays, the latter forcing a fumble which the Bucs recovered. Two plays later, Mike Glennon found Mike Evans in the corner of the endzone for the receiver's first career touchdown.

The Bucs look nothing like the dumpster fire we saw last game, when the Atlanta Falcons torched them. They're stuffing the Steelers offense at every opportunity -- a Steelers offense that scored 30+ points in two of its three games. And their offense did exactly what it needed to do: capitalize on the opportunities it was given. Or at least the first opportunity.

Of course, such dominance wouldn't be sustainable. The Bucs managed to hold the Steelers to a field goal on their third drive, but their own offensive drives led to a field goal and a short punt. The Bucs secondary then lost Mark Barron and Dashon Goldson to injuries, while their pass rush faltered, which led to an Antonio Brown touchdown to tie the game.

At the end of the first quarter it's 10-10 in Pittsburgh. Here's your second quarter open thread.
