๐Ÿˆ The NFL announced that the 2024 schedule will be released in May, but an exact date hasn’t been revealed. Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk thinks it won’t be this week.

“Will it be this week? As best we can tell, no, it wonโ€™t be,” Florio wrote.

“How about next week? Thatโ€™s currently looking more likely. Especially since next week is a big week for the TV industry, with the โ€œupfrontโ€ presentations in New York. Given that the league now authorizes each of the networks to announce a game or two in the days preceding the full release, it makes sense for the networks to generate maximum buzz by sharing a taste of the schedule on the day they unveil their full fall lineups.”

๐Ÿˆ The Steelers average the second-earliest bye week (6.82) since 2002 realignment, according to NFL Schedule Update.

๐Ÿˆ Russell Wilson wished Cam Heyward a Happy Birthday on X.

๐Ÿˆ Since 2020, the toughest division to play quarterback in is the AFC North, based on pass defense success rate allowed, according to Warren Sharp of Sharp Football. The AFC North also is the toughest division since 2020 based on pass defense completion % allowed.

๐Ÿˆ Joe Burrow is back throwing passes after undergoing surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right wrist on Nov. 27.

๐ŸŽฅ Old Time Football posted a clip of Steelers legend Franco Harris running for a touchdown against the Dallas Cowboys at Three Rivers Stadium in 1979.
