The Buccaneers started the 2010 season with a come from behind victory over the Cleveland Browns, and last week the Bucs beat the Panthers 20-7 in Carolina. Tampa Bay has not allowed any points in the second half of either of their first two games. The Bucs are tied for fourth in the NFL in turnover differential at plus-4.

LAST SEASON: The Pittsburgh Steelers went 9-7 after winning a Super Bowl Championship in the 2008 season. Injuries hurt the Steelers defense and the offensive line had a rough season. In the offseason the Steelers drafted center Maurkice Pouncey in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers produced a 3-13 regular season record in their first season under head coach Raheem Morris and general manager Mark Dominik. The Bucs were quiet in the free agency, but upgraded their roster with a strong draft. The Bucs took two defensive tackles with their top two picks. With the third-overall pick the Bucs took Gerald McCoy and used their second-round pick on Brian Price.

THE LAST TIME THESE TEAMS MET: The Bucs and Steelers last played in Pittsburgh during the 2006 regular season. The Steelers won that game 20-3.

BUCS-STEELERS SERIES: The Steelers lead the all-time series 7-1. The Buccaneers lone victory against Pittsburgh came in the 1998 season when Tampa Bay won by a score of 16-3.

    The Bucs BLOW !!! Their performance today shows they are not ready to compete.There is not a SINGLE player on defense that is effective against the run-I dont even want to get started on our secondary..Tampa is the poorest coached team in the NFL,and the dog of the league...Im *censored* pissed-the whole damn team should be ashamed of their performance..Pure crap !!!

    Steelers scored a touchdown in week one...do you not remember the Mendenhall run in OT? That's some lazy research/journalism (Probably just looked at the final score saw that saw it was divisible by 3 and guessed they didn't score a touchdown), at least look at the box score.
