Bruce Arians’ team were being eulogised as a playoff-bound juggernaut led by a Tom Brady sticking it to Father Time, and with a suffocating Todd Bowles defence taking names at the line scrimmage.Two weeks later, and the Bucs are licking the wounds of a 38-3 demolition at the hands of the New Orleans Saints, having just about escaped East Rutherford with a 25-23 win over the New York Giants earlier in the week.The performance against the Saints was as ugly as it was ever going to get, and one Arians will be hoping proves a mere anomaly.Read the full feature here… – Advertisement – The Tampa Bay Buccaneers arrived in Charlotte more than seven hours late after mechanical issues with their plane delayed their arrival ahead of Sunday’s match against the Carolina Panthers, according to reports.The flight was scheduled to depart Tampa International Airport at 2.25pm ET and land in Charlotte at 3.55pm ET, according to ESPN.The delay forced the team to hold team meetings and eat a meal inside the airport.

Game Day Preview…Pittsburgh Steelers at Jacksonville Jaguars

first_imgCELEBRATION—Antonio Brown celebrates after one of his 7 catches. He was flagged for one of 13 penalties against the Steelers for 125 yards. (AP photo)After an embarrassing collapse last week against the previously winless Buccaneers, the Steelers travel to Jacksonville to take on another winless team. Will they fail to put away another weaker opponent or will they actually step up and take control of this game?You never know who’s going to show up so anything can certainly happen. So far, through the first quarter of the season, the black and gold have been anything but impressive. They are in the midst of the weakest part of their schedule so it’s time to start winning ball games.Here are the Keys to A Steelers Victory:They need to eliminate the penalties. The 15 yard penalties have been out of control and it’s a sure fire way to lose a game against an inferior opponent, as the team proved last week.The offensive line better protect Ben. Pretty straight and simple. Without giving him protection, the team won’t be able to move the ball.The defense needs to stop crucial drives. Whenever they need to get the job done, the defense seems to fail. They need to step up on key 3rd downs and key drives, period.Blake Bortles is an x factor. The rookie QB has played pretty well since joining the starting lineup. Traditionally the Steelers D handles rookie QB’s. Can they continue to do so? They need to get to him early and often.Here are a Few Things to Watch:Cortez Allen-He’s the teams’ number one cornerback right now and he needs to start playing like one. Can he show us what the Steelers seem to see in him? So far that contract extension doesn’t look justified.Mike Tomlin-What will he do if and when the team starts getting penalized? Will he sit there with no e emotion or will he finally step up and do something about it?Antonio Brown-He’s run his streak of games with at least 5 catches and 50 yards to 20 straight, expect that to get to 21.The Defense in General-Can they get to the qb and apply pressure? Can they cause the necessary turnovers? Can they get off the field when necessary?last_img read more
