Football is pretty much right around the corner once again. It's hard to believe, it feels like the Offseason is flying by. Still, it's only preseason, however, it's still football and you won't catch me complaining about it.
The Steelers are playing the Cowboys on August 5th at 8 pm for the Hall of Fame game in Canton Ohio. Which is pretty cool. However, don't expect to see the Steelers playing many of their starters during this first game. It will still be cool to see some of our Draft Picks showcasing themselves in our uniform.
For their second game, the Steelers will travel to Philly to play the Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. They play on August 12th at 7:30 pm. This game should be interesting, I would expect to see more and more starters playing. We might see Mason Rudolph/Dwayne Haskins in this game. Still, I wouldn't expect Ben Roethlisberger to be out there.
Their third preseason game is at Heinz Field on August 21st at 7:30 pm. This game is against the Lions. I really don't know what Pittsburgh's plan of action will be for this game. However, I would expect to see more starters getting some playing time. However, our rookies should still be the focal point for this game.
Their final preseason game is a trip down south to visit the Carolina Panthers on August 27th at 7:30 pm. I would expect to see the Steelers put a bow on their preseason plan for this game. I would expect to perhaps see Big Ben for a drive here, however, that would be all for him.
