The Pittsburgh Steelers are looking to bounce back by returning to the postseason. Their schedule is interesting, but it gives them ample opportunity.
Last year was an unforgettable year for the Pittsburgh Steelers. They lost Ben Roethlisberger for the season in the second game. Their backup quarterback was exposed as terrible and then almost decapitated. They were past the saga that was Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell, but the drama was still aplenty.
This season, things seem set to be set to go a little smoother. Big Ben is back and healthy. The drama is further in the rearview mirror, so they can move on with the team they have. They get a full season of Minkah Fitzpatrick, who really turned into a great player after he was traded from the Miami Dolphins.
This season, the Steelers are looking to dethrone the reigning MVP Lamar Jackson, who plays for the hated Baltimore Ravens. After watching them get to the No. 1 seed in the AFC, the only solace the Steelers had was watching them go one-and-done. Now, they want to show that the Ravens dominating the AFC North was a one-time thing, and the Steelers wanted to regain their status in the division.
With that in mind, we take a long, hard look at their 2020 schedule. It’s an interesting one, where the Steelers play the AFC South and the NFC East. These aren’t exactly the powerhouses of the NFL, so it could set up the Steelers for another really good season. Can they become a playoff team?
