Pittsburgh Steelers Reveal Four-Game Preseason Schedule


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.

    I have an issue with the way Tomlin uses the pre-season games… ie.. does not play them to win or even seem to care abput winning any of them… I think it sends a bad message.. winning breeds winning and the failure to try to win any game in the preseason seems like it carries over to the regular season… I’m not saying that you have to win all of the preseason games, but, going 0-4 send a bad message.

      I’m not sure going 0-4 is a statement on a lack of desire to win. It probably means the Steelers’ depth isn’t very good, more than anything else.

        My point is that these athletes need to win once in a while, even a meaningless pre-season game… I think it carries over into the regular season when you go 0-4 in the preseason… it is in the back of everyones mind… Like a lot of things, I think it is lost on Tomlin… he thinks you can just turn a switch, but, it doesn’t work.
