As the NFL schedule begins to be fully released, the Steelers announced they will open the 2021 regular season on the road in Buffalo.
The game against the Bills will kickoff at 1 p.m. and be broadcast locally on KDKA and nationally on CBS.
Headed to Buffalo for Week 1️⃣
— Pittsburgh Steelers (@steelers) May 12, 2021
Buffalo beat the Steelers pretty handily last season by the score of 26-15. That game was the Sunday Night Football game for Week 15 of the 2020 campaign. Ben Roethlisberger, who is returning for his 18th season this year, threw two key interceptions in the loss to the Bills.
With their opponents already known, the Steelers are slated to play the toughest schedule in the NFL.
The entire Steelers schedule for 2021, including dates and times for all games, will be revealed later tonight at 8 p.m. on the NFL Network.
