2013 NFL Schedule Release – Steelers Open Up Season At Home Against Titans

The 2013 NFL schedule has just been released and we now know that the Pittsburgh Steelers will open the season at home against the Tennessee Titans.

In Week 2 of the season, the Steelers will travel to Cincinnati to take on the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday Night Football.

The Steelers have a total of four prime time games as they will also play the Baltimore Ravens on Thanksgiving night in Baltimore and they also will host the Bengals on Sunday Night Football on Dec. 15.

The Steelers Week 4 game has been set in stone for some time now as they will play the Minnesota Vikings in London on Sept. 29th at Wembley Stadium. The Vikings will be considered the home team for that game.

Former Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace returns to Pittsburgh in Week 14 as a member of the Miami Dolphins.

    So I see we play the Jets 1st game back from the bye week. I wonder if we’ll have to contend with ex-Steeler Willie Colon in that game?!!! You know, that guy that said he’ll have a huge chip on his shoulder when he plays us! Or will he already be on IR by that time!!

  • steeltown

    Ok, so I know we play in London week 4, but I don’t like the fact that we have an early bye week AGAIN

  • JC

    It looks like a fairly manageable schedule. I’m optimistic that we could win 10 games. Under one condition, Ben must stay heathy for all 16 games.

  • Ahmad

    I remember him saying a big ass chip.

  • Kevin Gobleck

    Man i could see us winning 12 of these games, hit a solid draft this year and we will be right back in the super bowl mix! Go Steelers!

  • StarSpangledSteeler

    The first 8 weeks are fairly easy. That benefits us hugely because we will have a lot of young players getting adjusted. Their growing pain mistakes won’t hurt us so badly.

    3 of our last 4 at home (in the cold weather that we love). Last game against the Browns (who will likely be trying to lose again). That could be a game we rest our starters (like a late season bye).

    I see 10-6 as long as we stay healthy.

  • LucasY59

    Looks like another 8-8 season would be a pretty big disappointment, shouldn’t have too much trouble winning 10 games (although nothing is easy in the NFL) would be surprised if they win more than 12, if they do could make a good run in the playoffs

  • RMSteeler

    All the other AFC North teams FINALLY play a stronger SOS than the Steelers! Will see how much winning more puts them in that situation. Can any of them rip off 12 win seasons three years in a row? NOT! But it has become competitive in the division, not just Steelers/Ravens. Will be interesting to see what the Ravens do this year. Seems they had a rough off season, maybe more so. It’ll be interesting to see if their coaching holds up to all the changes.

  • David Edward

    First glance through and I saw 11-5.

  • NW86

    Agreed, I can only remember 1 of the past several years when we’ve had a break at or past the midpoint of the season. Last year it worked out OK because you had Mendy, Harrison, Hampton, Starks, etc. all working back from offseason surgeries/issues, but generally you’d expect to be more banged up later in the season. I guess the only good news is, there’s a good chance Heath can be back in the lineup by 10/13.

  • Davey J

    Lets go Steelers, doesn’t matter who we play as long as we never give up

  • JohnB

    not to be a jackass or anything but can we update this?
