Preseason dates, times set

Last week when the Steelers announced their regular season schedule, they also gave an initial look at the preseason schedule.

That preseason schedule is now finalized and includes two nationally televised games.

As was previously announced, the team will open the preseason playing in the Pro Football Hall of Fame game against the Cowboys on Thursday, Aug. 6 at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton, Ohio. Kickoff for the game, which will feature the Steelers as the home team, is at 8:20 p.m. on NBC (WPXI-TV in Pittsburgh) with television coverage beginning at 8 p.m.

The team will then have two home games and close out the preseason with two straight games on the road.

The Steelers host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the second-straight year in what is technically considered Week 1 of the preseason when they meet at Heinz Field on Friday, Aug. 14 at 7:30 p.m. The game will be televised on KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh.

They will continue at home in Week 2, hosting the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, Aug. 23 at 8 p.m. on FOX (WPGH-TV locally), their second national televised game of the preseason.

The team will be on the road the next two weeks, taking on the New York Jets on Friday, Aug. 28 in a Week 3 matchup at MetLife Stadium, with kickoff at 7:30 p.m. The black and gold will close out the preseason on the road against the Carolina Panthers on Thursday, Sept. 3 at 7:30 p.m. at Bank of America Stadium. This will be the 18th consecutive year the two teams will meet in the final week of the preseason. Both the Jets and Panthers game will be broadcast on KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh.

All Steelers preseason and regular season games can be heard on the Steelers Radio Network on WDVE-FM (102.5) and WBGG-AM (970) as well on
