Pittsburgh Steelers look to finish preseason with win against Carolina Panthers


One day after their biggest offseason signing of 2017, the Pittsburgh Steelers look to finish their preseason off with a win over the Carolina Panthers.

So far, the preseason has left questions surrounding the Pittsburgh Steelers. With a 2-1 record heading into their final game, this team has been hit or miss throughout almost every matchup. But as they take on the Panthers before heading into the regular season, they’ll look to put the final pieces of the puzzle together.

No, Joe Haden isn’t going to make his Pittsburgh debut just yet. After signing a three-year, $27 million contract yesterday, the Steelers have answered their secondary problem. Now, they’re hoping players fighting for the 53-man roster will step up to provide quality backups before Week 1.

Although this is the last shot some of the starters have to gain chemistry, don’t expect to see many stars play for long. Like last week, Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown and most of the other stars won’t see more than a drive or two.


With one game left, players like Josh Dobbs and Landry Jones will be competing for the backup quarterback spot, and the handful of wide receivers fighting for the 53-man roster will all look to shine in their final tryout.

Watch as plenty of players on both sides of the ball will try to make their final mark on this team before cuts are made. Ross Cockrell, Justin Hunter, Mike Hilton and plenty more will be looking to secure their spot not only on the team but as high on the depth chart as possible.

Not all questions are going to be answered in this final preseason game, but without all the starters playing a whole game, no one really knows what to expect from the Steelers. For now, though, we can interpret that there will be miscues, but nothing this team can’t overcome during the regular season.
