Steelers 2017 Schedule Leaks: Bears Week 3 (Updating)


The 2017 NFL schedule will be released later this evening and a few leaks are already beginning to surface.

As for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, is now reporting on Twitter that they will play the Chicago Bears on the road in Week 3.


This report is far from official, but Biggs has been covering the Bears for quite a while.

The Steelers last played the Bears in 2013 at Heinz Field and they lost that game 40-23. The Bears have had a lot of changes during the offseason that included them signing former Steelers wide receiver Markus Wheaton.

I will update this post with more Steelers schedule leaks should any surface between now and the official release.

Pete Dougherty of the Green Bay Press-Gazette is now reporting that the Steelers will play the Packers at Heinz Field, Sunday night Nov. 26. I think that’s Week 12.

The Steelers will apparently host the New England Patriots in Week 15.

The Steelers will reportedly play the Houston Texans on Christmas day on the road and that’s a Monday game.

Update: It looks like the Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings and New England Patriots already have Week 1 leaks and none of them will open their seasons against the Steelers. If I had to guess, the Steelers will open at home against either the Baltimore Ravens or the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Going to this game!

  • JT

    So Bears 0-4 start, huh?

  • dany

    Time to end that losing streak against the bears

  • StrengthOfVictory

    I like getting the Bears early. Play Glennon before he has too much time to figure out the team’s offense.

  • cencalsteeler

    Or our Defense, lol.

    Chicago is a hop, skip, and a jump from me. I’ll DEFINITELY be attending that game. And look forward to the D giving Mr. Glennon a work over. I just hope that city has cleaned itself up some by then. Soldier Field is a bit precariously placed on the edge of one of their “bad spots” in town. Last thing I’d ever want to hear is anything happening to any fans. I’m looking forward to the day when the Bears are a force to be reckoned with again.

    For whatever reason, that team is a bit snakebit. Perhaps moving on from Cutler will be a breath of fresh air. They are one of the teams that pick at the top of this draft (3) that could absolutely go any direction. I thought Kevin White was a questionable choice. But I really liked Leonard Floyd last year. I think Chicago needs to address that woeful Secondary. I’d go Safety if I were them, I think. Adams makes a ton of sense.

    Me too!

  • Jon Hartman

    going to this game! i think i will be going to four away games this season – chicago, indianapolis, kansas city and cleveland.

  • T3xassteelers

    Wonder when the Texans game will be!!! I’m hoping it’s in December so I can go (as school will be on break)!!

  • Steel Realist PAul

    Darth, how do you get your tickets for games out of town?

  • T3xassteelers

    YES!!!!! Steelers @ Texans on Christmas night!! I’ll be home for that 😀 YAY!!! Thank you schedule gods! #HYPED

  • Michael James

    Happy for you, go there and enjoy the game! 😉

  • Darth Blount 47

    I use either Stub-Hub or Vivid-Seats. Both sites have their pluses and minuses, but both are reputable and I’ve never had any issues at all. Stub has great customer service when needed and though their prices are sometimes a tick higher, they give you the 1st seat in a mentioned section when you order.

    So for instance, if it says Row 538, Seats 1-4… and you are only buying 1 or 2 of those tickets, Stub will always give you that 1st and 2nd seat first, so like in that case (if you’re an Aisle hunter like me) you will be sure to get that aisle seat 1 and then 2.

    Vivid usually has a tad lower prices, but they will often give you the “worse seat” in a listing first. So in that above example, you’d get seats 3-4, or seat 4, if you were going stag. Kind of annoying sometimes, but often beggars can’t be choosers, lol.

    Went to Heinz last year for the first time, but man, that was an expensive trip! Nice to have one so close to home! But thanks 🙂

  • Steelnation26

    Hey I am thinking of going to the Texans game as well. I went the last time Pitt came here to Texas and had a good time, hoping to have a better time this go around hoping the Steelers can pull off a win.

  • WreckIess

    Vikings week 2

  • Paddy

    The writers will be ecstatic about another Xmas game again this season. The travel problems that causes are monumental

  • Alan Tman

    I heard 11/26/17 GB.

  • T3xassteelers

    Yeah I hope so too!! Love the Texans stadium. Went there for a few USA soccer games haha. Never seen an NFL game there though so I’m excited. I’m also guessing since it’s on Christmas, the tickets may be a little cheaper.

  • KiJana Haney

    We play on christmas again haha I get to freak out again. The patriots on week 15 is great because it sets up a massive showdown at the end of the year when both teams are their best.

  • Superdriller316

    The schedule is on the Steelers site. Open and close with the Browns.

    Week 9 bye.

    Thanks for sharing that. I live in MN and go to Chicago from time to time too. I might try to hit that game with my boys.

  • Jim Foles

    We barely cross the Mississippi this year.

  • John Pennington

    Get paid alot of money to whine when you play there’s alot of players who didn’t make teams who would love to play on Christmas.I had to work most holidays didn’t like it but that was my job just like it’s your job.
