The Steelers will host the Buccaneers on Friday, the second night of the Week 1 NFL preseason schedule.
The Steelers are coming off a dramatic season in which Le’Veon Bell didn’t play a single down and Antonio Brown grew disgruntled, leading to Pittsburgh’s first playoff miss since 2013. Now that Bell and Brown are playing for different teams, the pressure is on a new supporting cast for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and coach Mike Tomlin, who is going into his 13th season with the team.
On the other hand, the Bucs began last season strong, starting Ryan Fitzpatrick at QB after having to sideline Jameis Winson for the first three games. The high quickly came to an end, resulting in a five-win campaign and the firing of head coach Dirk Koetter after three seasons.
The Bucs went on to hire Bruce Arians as Koetter’s replacement, convincing him to come out of his two-year retirement. Friday’s contest will be the first glimpse into Tampa’s new offense under Arians.
