Seeing on Twitter tonight that according to Sly's fan club we will open on the road followed by weeks 2 and 3 at home and week 4 away.

With Dallas opening at NYG on Weds. Nite there is speculation we could play Denver for the Sunday nite opener.

Going to try and get some confirmation on this.

When will our schedule come out? Sometime in May or so after the late April NFL draft?

I'm so tired of playing in Denver, I mean really. Get them to come to Heinz, atleast Clark can play in that game. If you needed him against Tebow you'll really need him against Manning!

We all know speculation is worth it's weight in, well..you know. It would seem though that since Denver is opening the season in the prime time slot on Sunday that the Steelers would be a good fit, just based on last season alone.

If you're looking for all the media hype in the world, this would be the game for it that's for sure.

There are rumblings that the Pittsburgh Steelers (http://espn.go.com/nfl/team/_/name/pit/pittsburgh-steelers) will open the regular season at the Denver Broncos (http://espn.go.com/nfl/team/_/name/den/denver-broncos) on Sunday Night Football.

The Broncos have received word that they will kick off the season in prime time on Sunday, according to the Denver Post (http://www.denverpost.com/broncos/ci_20262128/tv-wants-peyton-manning-led-denver-broncos-work), which suggests the Steelers are the best bet to be the opponent. There are other candidates, but The Post speculates the NFL wouldn't want a prime-time game involving the scandal-ridden Saints, or put the Broncos on the road at New England.

It would make sense scheduling the Steelers at the Broncos, which is a rematch of last season's divisional playoff game.

The news has already circulated to Steelers safety Ryan Clark (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/4301/ryan-clark), who sat out the playoff game because the high altitude can affect his blood condition. "Hearing Steelers @ Broncos could be 1st Sunday night game of the season," Clark posted on Twitter (https://twitter.com/#%21/RealRClark25/status/184688097269780480). "If that happens, guess I'll wait for week 2."

This probably won't get confirmed for another month. The full NFL schedule is typically released a week before the draft.
