The Pittsburgh Steelers and their fans now know when their beloved team will play in the first four exhibition games of the season.
The Steelers already knew they were taking on the Giants, Panthers, Colts and Falcons, but were uncertain of the dates and times they’d be squaring off. Well, now, they can begin preparing for their first action of the 2017 season.
With the NFL Draft right around the corner, the Steelers still have players to add before this team can start moving forward. With eight picks in the draft, they’ll look to add big names and key playmakers to their already Super Bowl caliber team.
They’ll get to test the water with their new guys in these preseason matchups. Facing two potential NFC Champions, Pittsburgh will hope to learn a little about their opponents while putting the finishing touches on themselves.
As they take the final steps before offseason workouts and eventually the preseason, they’ll look to put the pieces of the puzzle together for another playoff run. This year, they’ll get a lot of competition in the preseason and should use that to their advantage. Who knows, they could end up facing all of these teams in the playoffs/Super Bowl.
