Buccaneers vs. Steelers Gameday Matchup


On September 28, 2014 the Tampa Bay Buccaneers(0-3) will travel into Heinz Field to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers(2-1) in a week 4 matchup. Game start time 10:00 am PST on FOX.

The Steelers are the 8 point favorite versus a slowly but surely depleting Buccaneers team ranked 30th in the league overall on offense, surpassed by a 27th overall defense. Facing a 5th overall on offense, and 18th overall on defense in Pittsburgh should be quite a challenge for Tampa Bay.

In the last meeting between the two teams, the Steelers cruised away with a 38-13 win in Tampa Bay back in September of 2010. Pittsburgh leads the overall series record 8-1. The fact that the Buccaneers have never won a game in Pittsburgh does not bode well for them this time around.

With an average 11.5 victory margin through nine meetings, the Pittsburgh Steelers will definitely add to that this Sunday afternoon. My prediction:

Tampa Bay 17
Pittsburgh 35
