Here’s the Steelers full schedule for the 2021 NFL Season

The NFL released the Pittsburgh Steelers schedule on Wednesday, May 12. We break it down, including a full list of games, prime time matchups, and strength of schedule.

The NFL announced the complete 2021 schedule on Wednesday, May 12, and the Pittsburgh Steelers are officially set to kick off their 2021 season on the road against the Buffalo Bill at 1:00 p.m. ET. Their first divisional game will be in Week 3 at home against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Nobody expected the Steelers to kick off 2020 by winning 11 games in a row, but things went downhill fast down the stretch. Pittsburgh lost four of its final five regular-season games to finish 11-4 before falling to the Cleveland Browns in the Wild Card Round. The Steelers’ stout defensive line kept them in a lot of games last year, but Ben Roethlisberger’s swift decline became more and more of a problem as the season went on. The Steelers addressed their running back situation by selecting Alabama’s Najee Harris in the first round of the 2021 NFL draft, but the offensive line and secondary remain concerns? The Steelers are in danger of drooling a few spots competitive NFC North.

All times listed are Eastern.
