    Exclamation 2011 Steelers Preseason Schedule Released

    Just released today...



    The Steelers will play one nationally televised preseason game during the 2011 preseason, a Thursday night matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles, and will also host the Atlanta Falcons, the team announced today.

    The Steelers will open the 2011 preseason on the road vs. the Washington Redskins, the fifth straight preseason matchup between the teams at FedEx Field. The Steelers are 5-13-1 all-time in the preseason against the Redskins in the preseason series that started in 1967. The game will be televised locally on KDKA-TV.

    The Steelers host the Eagles in a nationally televised contest on Thursday, Aug. 18 (Week 2), at Heinz Field. The game will kick off at 8 p.m. and will be televised on FOX (locally WPGH-TV). It marks the first preseason matchup between the teams since 2008.

    Pittsburgh plays its second of back-to-back preseason home games with a Week 3 matchup against the Atlanta Falcons, which will be televised on KDKA-TV. The two teams have not played a preseason game in Pittsburgh since 1978. The Steelers hosted the Falcons in the 1998 preseason in a game played in Morgantown, W.Va.

    The Steelers will conclude the preseason on the road vs. the Carolina Panthers, the ninth consecutive year the two teams will play in the preseason finale. The game also will be televised locally by KDKA-TV.

    The times and dates for the three games to be televised on KDKA-TV have yet to be finalized.

    Following is a look at the Steelers’ 2011 preseason schedule:

    Week 2 - 8 p.m. PHILADELPHIA FOX/WPGH-TV Pgh

    It would nice to play some different teams now and then for the preseason, even if it doesn't count but oh well.

    They mostly play teams in the vicinity of where they're located. No point in doing extra travel for games that don't count.
