1. Establish the run : This season Pittsburgh is terrible against the run. The Bucs should use this to their advantage and pound the rock. With the receivers that the Bucs have, Pittsburgh should leave their safeties deep, giving them plenty of room for Peyton Barber to finally get going.
2. Pressure Ben Roethlisberger : The Bucs D-line has a huge task ahead of them and I do mean huge, as Big Ben is a gigantic QB, known for his ability to escape the pocket and improvise. Let’s hope JPP has a nice night.
3. Limit the big play : The Steelers have 2 very good WRs in Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster, with Brown easily a top 5 receiver in the NFL. This year JuJu is having a breakout year so far. Luckily the Bucs should have CB Brent Grimes back tonight. This could be great as the Bucs have had trouble against the pass without Grimes in the lineup.
