JuJu Smith-Schuster recently did a virtual media tour with Charmin's BRB Bot after their 2021 schedule was released. He told Steelers Wire that he has three games circled heading into their new season. Although he did say he enjoys playing every single football game in the NFL he still has his eyes on three games heading out west. This makes sense because a lot of JuJu Smith-Schuster's family lives out west in California so you can imagine which games he really is looking forward to playing...
He is most eager to play the LA Chargers on November 21. That is going to be a Sunday Night Football Game on Primetime, but it also will allow his family to be present during the game. He told Steelers Wire his 'whole family is out there so it is going to be very exciting to go out there and play football.'
Another game he is very interested in playing in is against the Las Vegas Raiders. This is interesting because the Raiders are not a big rivalry with the Steelers, but again his family is close by to watch him play.
The last game he is very interested in playing in is with the Vikings because he has never played in Minnesota's stadium. Normally when he talks to other players about their schedule they typically like to circle games away games they have never played in. That would make sense because the last time the Steelers played the Vikings in Minnesota was in 2005.
The Steelers and Vikings have both won 9 games against each other so in 2021 it will make things very interesting for both organizations in regards to wins. Those three games we have circled now because it seems JuJu will pick it up a notch while playing. Hopefully, he ends up going off.
