Steelers vs. Buccaneers: Five Bold Predictions

 Are you ready
for some football?Now that the world’s most annoying opening theme is stuck in
your head ,
there is only one way to get it out:Check out this week’s bold predictions.1.
Cameron Brate and O.J. Howard each score a touchdown. (Evan)The Chiefs’ offense
presented all kinds of issues for the Steelers, and the result was Kansas City
finishing the game with 42 points on the board. Travis Kelce was responsible for
14 of those and there is no reason to think the Bucs can’t get the same type of
production out of both Brate and Howard. Kelce was targeted eight times and
hauled in seven of those targets. The interesting fact on that was the Steelers
were mixing up their coverages on him, but it wasn’t enough. He was covered by
seven different players on the eight targets and no one could stop him.The Bucs
wil make some big plays with Howard, then will finish off the longer, more
time-consuming drives with a play to Brate in the redzone. Tampa Bay may have to
utilize more 12 personnel sets as well to offset the Steelers’ pass rush. Brate
has zero receptions on the season, so it’s time the Bucs got him involved. This
will be the week to do so.2. JuJu Smith-Schuster goes for at least 150 yards.
(Evan)Yea, this one sucks, but some things in life are inevitable and this is
certainly one of them.Smith-Schuster is the best slot receiver in the league.
M.J. Stewart looks to have a bright future ahead of him, but is still learning
the game. Speed was never Stewart’s game and that was exposed against the Eagles
after Nelson Agholor took a short crossing pass and outran Stewart for a 50-yard
gain.Stewart has a chance to throw Smith-Schuster off his game at the line of

off. The rest of the defense will be dealing with Antonio Brown, so expect the
young anime fan to have a big night.3. Ryan Fitzpatrick throws for 400 yards and
four touchdowns yet again. (Alex)The Buccaneers offense is humming and the
Steelers defense is, well, just not that good. They just gave up six passing
touchdowns to Patrick Mahomes last weekend and now they have the task of
stopping an offense with even more weapons then Kansas City. The 75 yard passes
may not be their all night long, but Fitzpatrick should be able to carve this
defense up if the offensive line continues its stellar play.Oh, and by the way,
if Fitzpatrick makes it three games with 400+ and 4 touchdowns, he should be the
starter come week six, no matter what happens in week four. 4. Both teams
combine for over 900 yards of total offense. (Alex)This game has the makings of
a good old-fashioned shootout. The Buccaneers are first in YPG with
482.5 Authentic

fully expect the Steelers to come out slinging. Big Ben has thrown a league high
101 passes through two games. I mean that’s just absurd for a quarterback who is
in his 15th season. I still don’t fully trust Ryan Smith and who knows how Brent
Grimes will play coming off of a groin injury. Both should see plenty of Antonio
Brown and that’s very worrisome. The Bucs were very pleased to see Grimes
practicing in full this weekJohn A. Babiak, @Photog_JohnBThe weapons of the
Buccaneers are well documented, but these are the best two offenses in football
and I think we could be looking at an all-time classic game come Monday night.
5. Chandler Catanzaro finally doesn’t miss a kick.Crazy, right? I mean the
Buccaneers are cursed at this point, but I am going to put my faith in the
football kicking odds. The missed PAT could’ve cost Tampa Bay dearly last week,
but luckily for Catanzaro it never got to that point. With everyone predicting a
shootout, this game could very well come down to which kicker misses first. The
Buccaneers are currently in a must-win situation this Sunday. Tampa Bay
currently sits at 2-3 and are currently on a three game losing streak. With
Baker Mayfield and the 2-3-1 Browns coming to town this weekend, this is a game
the Buccaneers should win, have to win and need to win Womens Vita

, otherwise, the season is officially over in
mid-october yet again.Will Mark Duffner be able to create some packages that
confuse Mayfield? If there is ever an opportunity for the Buccaneers to gain
some confidence in themselves on the defensive side of the ball, this is the
week to do it. The Browns have the second lowest completion percentage in the
league on offense at 53.3%. The Buccaneers are currently allowing an NFL record
76.8% completion percentage against. These two teams aren’t all that familiar
with each other being from different conferences, but they have played a total
of nine times throughout the years. Make no mistake about it, this Cleveland
Browns team is much better than the ones in the past and this will not be a
pushover game for Tampa Bay. Here is a look at some of the all-time stats
between the two teams when they square off. All-time record: Cleveland leads
Tampa Bay 6-3.Last Matchup: Cleveland beat Tampa 22-17 in Cleveland.Last five
games: Tampa Bay is leading 3-2. All-time scoring comparison: Cleveland has
scored 188 points, while Tampa bay has scored 144.
