The Pittsburgh Steelers will face the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field in their second preseason game of the year on Thursday night, and we have all the information you need to know to follow the action.
As an inter-conference opponent, the two teams traditionally only play once every four years and the two have faced each other just 35 times dating back to 1933. The Packers currently hold a 19-16 advantage over Pittsburgh and the Steelers are 3-1 against Green Bay since Mike Tomlin took control of the team in 2007. Sadly that one loss under Tomlin was Super Bowl XLV and a game few fans are likely to have been able to forget quite yet.

The Steelers had already made the decision to sit Ben Roethlisberger before he appeared to suffer a concussion at practice on Tuesday. Cameron Heyward, Landry Jones and Antonio Brown will also be rested against the Packers, while Vance McDonald and Ramon Foster will miss the matchup due to injury. Although Pittsburgh saw several names miss practice in the run up to the game, no other players have officially been ruled out as of yet.
