If you would have told Tampa Bay fans that their team would be 2-0 heading into this Monday night matchup, they probably would have looked at you like you are crazy. Ryan Fitzpatrick has been everything the team hoped for and more. He’s the MVP of the league right now.
Monday night is a big game for the Pittsburgh Steelers. The constant drama surrounding this team is a bit ridiculous and they need a win to quiet down the emotions in that building.
The Buccaneers and Steelers aren’t too familiar with each other. With the Steelers playing in the AFC and the Bucs in the NFC,they only face one another every four years. Monday night will only be the 11th time that they will go head to head. This will be the seventh time in 11 matchups that Pittsburgh is traveling to Tampa Bay.
All-time series record: Pittsburgh is 8-2 against Tampa Bay.
Last matchup: The “future” Mike Glennon led a last minute drive en route to a 27-24 win for the Buccaneers.
Buccaneers home record vs Steelers: 1-5
Statistic of the week:
Ben Roethlisberger on Monday Night Football? He’s 14-4 for his career. Only active QB with a higher win % and 5+ games is Cam Newton (5-1). Rest of the top five: Russell Wilson 6-2, Alex Smith 7-3, Tom Brady 15-7.— Greg Auman (@gregauman) September 21, 2018
Can the Buccaneers stay hot? Or will the Steelers capture their first win of the season? Should be a fun one at Raymond James Stadium on Monday night football.
