Get after Big Ben
Roethlisberger is a lock for a back-breaking interception or two every week. ‘Big Ben’ has thrown less than 10 interceptions in just four seasons during his long career.
A pair of crucial Pittsburgh offensive linemen will be out Monday night. Both right tackle Marcus Gilbert and right guard David DeCastro, are doubtful to play Monday night. DeCastro and Gilbert anchor the right side of the Pittsburgh offensive line, their absence could be a big advantage for Tampa Bay.
Roethlisberger has only hit the turf on five occasions. So far, the Steelers offensive line, which has been a strength over the past few seasons. Since 2014, the offensive line has given up no more than 21 sacks in a season.
As the injuries pile up, Tampa Bay can bring the pressure from the right side and get to Roethlisberger.
The Buccaneers pass rush hasn’t been that impressive to start the season. Jason Pierre-Paul has lived up to the billing, but Vinny Curry‘s ineffectiveness is beginning to become an issue. Without interior help, the defensive ends will have to shoulder the pass-rushing load.
