The first half of Bucs-Steelers on Monday night football has been pretty much all Pittsburgh after an early score by Tampa Bay. The Steelers lead 30-10 at halftime.

Ben Roethlisberger has been superb, throwing for 273 yards and three touchdowns on 21-of-25 passing. His three-yard scoring toss to Ryan Switzer in the final seconds of the half put Pittsburgh up three scores.

As for Ben's quarterback counterpart Ryan Fitzpatrick, well, let's just say the clock might be striking midnight on Cinderella. After two huge weeks. Fitz is 11-for-21 for 184 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions so far tonight.

ESPN has just put out its prediction for the second half. The computer is banking on a Pittsburgh victory.

According to the FPI, the Steelers have almost a 97 percent chance of winning.

Win probability for Bucs-Steelers.

The second half of Bucs-Steelers is set to start momentarily. We'll see if Pittsburgh can hang on for win No. 1 on the season.

You can catch the game on ESPN.
