As a sea of black & gold washed over Atlanta and the Georgia Dome Sunday afternoon, Steelers Nation Unite members were rewarded for making the presence of Steelers Nation known before the gates even opened.
For checking-in at the game, members were rewarded with a variety prizes including gold t-shirts, hats, Terrible Towels and flags, as Steelers Nation Unite met up with large groups of members and fans on Sunday morning. Fans were even rewarded for signing up Sunday morning, as they checked-in at the game and received Steelers Nation Unite gear.
Following Sunday's win, Head Coach Mike Tomlin took a moment during his postgame press conference to recognize Steelers Nation for their efforts during the game.
"I would be remiss if I didn't mention Steelers Nation. They were special in the building [Sunday]," Tomlin said. "[We] just love and appreciate the support that we get from our fans on the road. We are used to seeing it but it never gets old. We really appreciate it."

Members not at the game also benefited from joining Steelers Nation Unite. For supporting the Weekly Huddle call to action for a Gold Rush, members will be receiving Steelers Nation Unite prizes for sharing photos on social media of them watching Sunday's game while wearing their gold Steelers gear.
Coming this week will be a new way to connect with the team through the Weekly Huddle, as well calls to action for a showdown with the Kansas City Chiefs at Heinz Field on Sunday afternoon.
