The Pittsburgh Steelers 2020 schedule was released May 7, 2020.
The Steelers get four prime time games in 2020, one less than last year. They kick off Monday Night Football with a match up against the New York Giants. This will be the second year in a row that the Steelers will open up in prime time.
They get another MNF match up against Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals week 15, in December.
The Steelers only get one Sunday Night Football game in 2020, which will be a rematch from last year against the Buffalo Bills.
In what is probably the most exciting announcement, Pittsburgh gets a Thanksgiving night game at home against their division rivals, the Baltimore Ravens – who beat them twice last year. Steelers vs. Ravens are always must watch TV and some of the hardest hitting games. Thanksgiving is usually not a day when the Steelers play as they have played on Thanksgiving three times—in 1983 against the Detroit Lions, in 1991 against the Dallas Cowboys and again against the Lions in 1998.
Their first AFC North match up is week six against the Cleveland Browns. They face the defending AFC North champions, the Ravens, the following week. Their bye is the week after.
In a week five, they face off against the Philadelphia Eagles for the battle of Pennsylvania.
One last interesting schedule announcement is besides their prime time games, all the rest of their games kick off at 1 p.m.
All in all, the Pittsburgh Steelers will have eight home games and eight away games.
