The Pittsburgh Steelers are about to host their first game of the 2017 preseason when the Atlanta Falcons travel to the Big Ketchup Bottle. The Steelers won’t have many starters at their disposal, for both personnel and injury reasons, but it doesn’t mean there won’t be football to watch.
Preseason football is better than no football, in my opinion, and you will get to see players who are killing themselves for a shot to make the team. Desperation has a way of making things exciting, but for all the tiny details of the game, check out all the information below to enhance your viewing experience.
