The Steelers have some intriguing games on their schedule this year. Here are Pittsburgh’s five most anticipated games in 2020.

The Pittsburgh Steelers had an interesting 2019 season, to say the least. After Ben Rothlisberger got injured during Week 2 against the Seahawks, many counted the Steelers out. However, what we saw from Pittsburgh was extraordinary and credit goes to Mike Tomlin for helping to keep his team afloat.

Yes, the Steelers, unfortunately, missed the playoffs with an 8-8 record due to their QB play, but what many fans have to appreciate is how the team still managed to be in playoff contention up until Week 15. The Steelers are in the perfect position to make a playoff run in the 2020 season despite a fairly tough schedule.

In addition to the return of a healthy Roethlisberger, JuJu Smith-Schuster and James Conner appear to be at full strength heading into June. With the exception of Javon Hargrave, the Steelers were able to keep their defense intact that finished top six in yards allowed, points allowed, yards per play, and takeaways last season.

Today I want to highlight five of the most anticipated games the Steelers will play this season and what players and fans can expect.
