The Pittsburgh Steelers will take their first steps toward what they hope is a return to winning football this summer when training camp begins in Latrobe.
Following that, the NFL preseason will start in August, and the Steelers announced Wednesday the four opponents they will face in exhibition play.
According to the team’s Twitter account, Pittsburgh will face the Giants, Bills, Eagles and Panthers in the preseason, with dates and times yet to be established. The Steelers will host Buffalo and Carolina at Heinz Field in the second and fourth weeks of the preseason, respectively.
This assortment of opponents is typical for the Steelers, who (like most teams) prefer to limit travel in August. Trips to New York (Week 1) and Philadelphia (Week 3) will continue that trend.
