The 2007 Pittsburgh Steelers schedule has just been announced. Here is a sneak peak at the 2007 Pittsburgh Steelers schedule, with a preview of the most interesting games.
September 9 at Cleveland: Should be an easy game for the 2007 Steelers to get the season started – the Steelers have won six straight games in Cleveland, although last year’s 24-20 last minute win by the Steelers was the closest contest yet.
September 16 vs Buffalo
September 23 vs San Francisco
September 30 at Arizona: This game should be interesting as it matches former Steelers’ assistant coaches Ken Whisenhunt and Russ Grimm against their former team. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger should be particularly geared up for this game after he took offense to comments made by Whisenhunt regarding Roethlisberger’s play in the 2006 season.
October 7 vs Seattle: Rematch of Super Bowl XL.
October 14 – BYE: The Steelers always have a relatively early bye week and the 2007 Steelers schedule is no exception.
October 21 at Denver: Both Denver and Pittsburgh are coming off of relatively disappointing seasons in this rematch of the 2006 AFC Championship game. The 2007 Steelers will hope to make a better showing than last year’s game in Pittsburgh, in which Denver dominated throughout much of the game.
October 28 at Cincinnati: The Bengals will be seeking revenge in this game as the Steelers beat them in overtime in the 2006 season finale in Cincinnati, effectively knocking the Bengals out of playoff contention.
November 5 vs Baltimore: This Monday night game marks the 75th Anniversary celebration for the Steelers. The Ravens swept the Steelers last year, so the 2007 Steelers will be looking for retribution in this first of two games versus Baltimore.
November 11 vs Cleveland
November 18 at NY Jets
November 26 vs Miami: The Steelers will face one of their own – Linebacker Joey Porter, who was let go by the Steelers during the offseason and who has faced criminal battery charges since being let go by the Steelers.
December 2 vs Cincinnati
December 9 at New England: There is no love lost between Pittsburgh and New England, especially after the Patriots beat the Steelers in the 2005 AFC Championship game in Pittsburgh.
December 16 vs Jacksonville: Jacksonville beat the Steelers last year in a close game in Florida. Both teams are hoping that this game is important to the AFC playoff race.
December 20 at St Louis: Pittsburgh native Marc Bulger will face his hometown team in this Thursday night match-up.
December 30 at Baltimore: The Steelers will have 10 days off before they face the Ravens in this regular season finale. This game could be for the AFC North Championship.
