The 2021 schedule will reportedly be released after the NFL Draft for the second-straight season, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
For the second straight year, the 2021 NFL schedule will be released after the draft, per source. Not that there was much of a question about it, but it’s now official. Draft, then schedule.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 15, 2021
While this was expected, Schefter’s report does provide a clearer timeline.
Pittsburgh’s 2021 opponents have been common knowledge for quite some time, but the exact dates of those matchups will announced in a matter of weeks.
In addition to their six divisional games against the Bengals, Browns and Ravens, the Steelers will also face the Bills, Bears, Broncos, Lions, Packers, Chiefs, Raiders, Chargers, Vikings, Titans and Seahawks.
They will host Seattle in their 17th game, which will be played for the first time this season.
