Steelers announce 2015 regular-season schedule


The Steelers will appear in five nationally televised primetime games, including the first game of the NFL's 2015 regular season, it was announced today when the NFL unveiled its 2015 regular season schedule.

Pittsburgh will kick off the NFL's 2015 regular season slate at the New England Patriots in Week 1 (Sept. 10) on Thursday night (NBC, 8:30 p.m.).

Two of the Steelers' four other nationally televised primetime contests occur in back-to-back weeks. Pittsburgh will host its AFC North Divisional rival Baltimore Ravens at Heinz Field in Week 4 (Oct. 1) on Thursday Night Football (CBS/NFL Network, 8:25 p.m.) before traveling to San Diego for a Monday Night Football (ESPN, 8:30) match-up at the Chargers in Week 5 (Oct. 12).

Pittsburgh's remaining two nationally televised primetime games take place in Weeks 13 and 16, both on Sunday Night Football (NBC, 8:30 p.m.). The Steelers and Indianapolis Colts will square off in Week 13 (Dec. 6) at Heinz Field, and Pittsburgh will travel to Baltimore in Week 16 (Dec. 27).

The Steelers' bye week will be on Nov. 22 (Week 11).

"Flexible scheduling" will be used in Weeks 11-17. Additionally, in Weeks 5-10, flexible scheduling may be used in no more than two weeks. In Weeks 5-16, the schedule lists the games tentatively set for Sunday Night Football on NBC. Only Sunday afternoon games are eligible to be moved to Sunday night, in which case the tentatively scheduled Sunday night game would be moved to an afternoon start time.

Flexible scheduling will not be applied to games airing on Thursday, Saturday or Monday nights. A flexible scheduling move would be announced at least 12 days before the game. For Week 17, the Sunday night game will be announced no later than six days prior to January 3. The schedule does not list a Sunday night game in Week 17, but an afternoon game with playoff implications will be moved to that time slot. Flexible scheduling ensures quality matchups in all Sunday time slots in those weeks and gives "surprise" teams a chance to play their way into primetime.

A select number of games will be "cross-flexed," moving between CBS and FOX to bring potentially under-distributed games to wider audiences. Some of those contests were announced today while the remainder of "cross-flexed" games will be decided during the season.

Fans can listen to every Steelers game throughout the preseason and the regular season on the Steelers Radio Network on WDVE-FM (102.5) and WBGG-AM (970).

The Steelers also announced its Week 3 preseason game at the Buffalo Bills will kick off on Saturday, Aug. 29 at 4 p.m.
