The Buccaneers have really struggled offensively thus far. They got some players back for the game against the Falcons and still only managed 21 points. Tampa Bay also struggled to get the running game going again, so they became very one-dimensional on offense. Tom Brady threw for over 350 yards, but the Bucs only managed 5.6 yards per play. They came into the game with just 5.2 yards per play. The offensive line has had some issues protecting Brady, who, as we know, does not move particularly well.
The Kenny Pickett era started with a whimper for the Black & Gold as the Steelers mustered just three points in a blowout loss against the Bills. The Steelers were able to throw for over 300 yards, but they were also trailing badly throughout the game and played against a lot of soft zone coverage from Buffalo. It was a lot of empty, garbage-time offense. While the Steelers have had very little efficiency on offense, the defense has played well for the most part, even without T.J. Watt. They can keep Tampa Bay in check and the Bucs should do the same with the Steelers.
Pick: Under 43½
