2018 Steelers 30 at Buccaneers 27 MNF

TE Vance McDonald sets the tone early when he gathers in a Roethlisberger pass, turns upfield and delivers a BRUTAL "sit down, son!" stiff arm to DB Chris Conte, rumbling 75-yds down the sideline for a score. After an early pick, Big Ben has a nearly flawless game, hitting 30 of 38 for 353 yds and 3 TDs.

The Bucs score first on a short Fitzpatrick TD pass, but Fitz soon implodes, throwing INTs on 3 consecutive drives in the 2nd quarter, lncluding a back-breaking pick-6 to Bud DuPree as the Steelers open up a 30-10 halftime lead.

The Steelers sleepwalk a bit in the 2nd half and Tampa fights back, closing to within a FG late in the game. But it's too little, too late as the Steelers muscle down the clock to preserve the win.
