NFL Week 3 Preview, Prediction: Pittsburgh Steelers Vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Pittsburgh Steelers (2-0) vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-0)

When: 1:00 p.m. Sunday, CBS

SB Nation Steelers: Behind The Steel Curtain

SB Nation Bucs: Bucs Nation

Breakdown: This game may be more interesting than people think. The Steelers' Dennis Dixon won't play which means it's the next quarterback in the rotation: Charlie Batch. A backup quarterback gives any opponent a chance, especially one playing well like the Bucs.

Player to Watch: Josh Freeman. Who knew coming into this game the Bucs may have the quarterback advantage? Freeman has been playing well and will need another big day to beat the Steelers defense.

Line: Steelers are three point favorites.

Prediction: The Steelers are on the road and the Bucs are still undefeated but I can't pick against Pittsburgh. I'm taking the Steelers by a touchdown or less.
