…and the Black & Gold will be playing on Thanksgiving, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day!
From Teresa Varley, Steelers.com:
The Steelers 2016 schedule was released and includes four nationally televised primetime games, giving Steelers Nation plenty of opportunity to see them in action.
The Steelers kick off the season on the road against the Washington Redskins in a nationally televised game on Monday Night Football on Sept. 12 on ESPN at 7:10 p.m. as a part of a Monday Night opening weekend double-header.
An AFC North rivalry will be renewed early in the year when the Steelers host the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, Sept. 18 at Heinz Field. The two teams meet for a second time on Dec. 18 in Cincinnati on NBC’s Sunday Night Football.
Week 3 the Steelers will head to Philadelphia for an intrastate battle against the Eagles on Sunday, Sept. 25 at 4:25 p.m.
It’s then back to primetime for the Steelers the following week when they host the Kansas City Chiefs on Oct. 2 on NBC’s Sunday Night Football (8:30 p.m.).
After games against the New York Jets, Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots the Steelers will have a Bye Week (Oct. 30).
There is no place like home for the holidays, and that will be the case when the Steelers host the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, Dec. 25, Christmas Day, at 4:30 p.m. (NFLN), marking the first time the team will play on Christmas Day.
The Steelers will close out the regular season on New Year’s Day against the Cleveland Browns at Heinz Field at 1 p.m. (CBS).
All Steelers preseason and regular season games can be heard on the Steelers Radio Network on WDVE-FM (102.5) and WBGG-AM (970) as well on Steelers.com. All preseason games will be televised on KDKA-TV
