Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh Steelers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
After a puzzling Week 1, there are good signs from Roethlisberger. He’s throwing a lot, and I mean A LOT. He has over 100 pass attempts after the first two weeks and is spreading the ball around. He’s finally utilizing tight end Jesse James and has not had a problem manufacturing points without Le’Veon Bell, and he hasn’t connected with Antonio Brown…. yet. Why is he a good play for the second week in a row? Mostly it’s because the Bucs’ secondary has been diced up. While in Week 1, it was expected that Drew Brees would put in a strong game, perhaps not 439 yards and three touchdowns strong, but nonetheless, he brees-ed by. Last week Nick Foles, who really only had one wide receiver to throw to with Nelson Agholor, managed to throw for over 300 yards. Pittsburgh can score with the best of them, as seen last week, even if they’re a little slow to wake up and Big Ben is lined up to have a big day. – Ernie Estrella
