Steelers Announce 2021 schedule

One of the most anticipated days on the NFL calendar has finally arrived, a day Steelers fans anxiously await from the moment the previous season ends.

The Steelers 2021 NFL schedule has been released and it's filled with plenty of primetime excitement as the Steelers play five games under the bright lights this year, after playing four primetime games in 2020.

The five primetime matchups include three at Heinz Field, including two on Monday Night Football. The Steelers will host the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday Night Football and the Chicago Bears and Cleveland Browns on Monday Night Football. On the road the team will have two primetime games, playing the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday Night Football in SoFi Stadium for the first time and the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday Night Football.

For the first time in NFL history teams will have a 17-game schedule after NFL owners voted to expand the season by one game starting with the 2021 season. It's the first time the NFL has expanded the number of games since they went to a 16-game schedule in 1978.

With 17 games now on the schedule, the Steelers will play nine regular season games at Heinz Field, with eight games on the road. And they won't be easy games. The Steelers have the NFL's most difficult schedule, with a strength of schedule of .574 based on opponents 2020 records.
