The 2024 schedule for the Pittsburgh Steelers and the entire NFL will be released in full, starting at 8 p.m. on Wednesday night, but bits and pieces of the schedule usually leak throughout the day.

We will update this post with the latest information on the Steelers’ 2023 schedule.

Week 1:  Steelers at Atlanta Falcons, Sunday, Sept. 8, TBD

With the Pittsburgh Pirates at home, the only way for the Steelers to open at home would have been a North Shore doubleheader for Sunday Night Football. It doesn’t seem likely that anyone badly wanted that circus.

The Russell Wilson revenge game comes early and the Steelers will go on the road for each of their first two games since 2001. Another home Pirates weekend meant the Steelers could only play a night game at home in Week 2.

Week 6: Steelers at Las Vegas Raiders, Sunday, Oct. 13, TBD (via Andrew Fillipponi of 93.7 The Fan)

Week 7: Steelers vs. New York Jets, Sunday, Oct. 20, 8:25 p.m. (via Zachary Smith of Steelers Now)

Week 8: Steelers vs. New York Giants, Monday, Oct. 28, 8:15 p.m. (via Zachary Smith of Steelers Now)

NFL teams can play a maximum of six primetime games in a season, and the Steelers are usually near that mark. After two Thursday Night Football home games last year, the Steelers get back-to-back home primetime games in the middle of the season this year. The Giants haven’t come to Pittsburgh since 2016.

Week 10: Steelers at Washington Commanders, Sunday Nov. 10, TBD (via Andrew Fillipponi of 93.7 The Fan)

Week 11: Steelers vs. Baltimore Ravens, Sunday, Nov. 17, TBD (via Adam Crowley of 93.7 the Fan)

Week 12: Steelers at Cleveland Browns, Thursday, Nov. 21, 8:15 p.m. (via Andrew Fillipponi of 93.7 The Fan)

The Steelers might get a break and only get one Thursday Night Football game this year. The short trip to Cleveland is as easy of a short-week travel game as possible.

Week 13: Steelers at Cincinnati Bengals, Dec. 1, TBD (via Zachary Smith of Steelers Now)

The Steelers will take back-to-back trips to Ohio to gear up for the divisional gauntlet. This is the meat of their schedule, but the Browns and Bengals in succession have happened a few times, including last year.

Week 14: Steelers vs. Cleveland Browns, Sunday, Dec, 8, TBD (via Adam Crowley of 93.7 the Fan)

Week 15: Steelers at Philadelphia Eagles, Sunday, Dec. 15, TBD (via Zachary Smith of Steelers Now)

Well, here it is the, meat of the Steelers’ schedule, as the team faces a three-team gauntlet, starting with a trip to their cross-state foes, the Philadelphia Eagles. The Steelers’ Week 15, 16 and 17 opponents won a combined 35 regular-season games last year, five playoff games and the Super Bowl. The Steelers have lost 10 straight in Philadelphia, dating back to 1965.

Week 16: Steelers at Baltimore Ravens, Saturday, Dec. 21, TBD (via Andrew Fillipponi of 93.7 The Fan)

With a Christmas Day game coming up, the Steelers will play in two straight short-week games, and will also have to travel, as they’ll play the Ravens on a Saturday in Baltimore. The Steelers have won six of their last seven games in Baltimore. Expect returning former Ravens linebacker Patrick Queen to hear it from the M&T Bank faithful.

The biggest game on the Steelers schedule will feature the defending Super Bowl champions coming to Acrisure Stadium on Dec. 25. This game will be streamed on Netflix. The Steelers are 0-3 against the Patrick Mahomes-led Chiefs.

Week 18: Steelers vs. Cincinnati Bengals, Sunday, Jan. 5, TBD (via Zachary Smith of Steelers Now)

In the final divisional clash of the season, the Steelers will host the Cincinnati Bengals and Joe Burrow to round out their season. Like always, this final game is a divisional clash, but after the brutal schedule preceding it, this becomes even more perilous to close on this stretch.
