Heinz Field will host its first game of the 2011 season Thursday night as the Pittsburgh Steelers are just about ready to host the Philadelphia Eagles in what will be both teams' second preseason game. Kickoff is at 8 p.m. local time. The game will be televised on FOX.
Could this be a sneak peak at next February's Super Bowl? There's a laundry list of things that must go each team's way for that to happen, but both Pittsburgh and Philadelphia are on the short list of favorites. If you haven't already done so, you can prep yourself for tonight's game and who to keep an eye on here and here. Be sure to read Part 1 of BTSC's final training camp notes as well.
I'll be around the site commenting on the action as it unfolds, so join me and other Steelers fans from across the country and globe as we watch the Steelers try to improve upon their first exhibition outing last Friday night.
