The Pittsburgh Steelers enter Week 2 with an 0-1 record, and they make their regular season debut at Heinz Field to host the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers are 1-0 coming off their Monday Night Football win over the Minnesota Vikings, but on a short week and having to travel across country nothing is guaranteed.
It is the classic battle of potent offense vs. stout defense, and the winner of this matchup will certainly take a big step towards getting their 2015 regular season off on the right foot. Will the Steelers rebound from their Week 1 loss against the New England Patriots and advance to 1-1, or will they stumble to 0-2? Only time will tell. Get all the details you need for the game below.
