Steelers try to stop throwing Fitz, Buccaneers

The Pittsburgh Steelers are off to a rough start -- on and off the field -- and it doesn't figure to get any easier when they visit the suddenly potent Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday night.

Pittsburgh first-team All-Pro running back Le'Veon Bell is holding out and first-team All-Pro wide receiver Antonio Brown didn't report for work Monday, and implied on Twitter that he wanted to be traded. But the Steelers' biggest problem could be Tampa Bay quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Fitzpatrick became the first player to record back-to-back 400-yard, four-touchdown games to start a season, and could be licking his chops after Kansas City's Patrick Mahomes tossed six touchdown passes in the visiting Chiefs' 42-37 victory over the Steelers last week.
