It may not be football that counts, but Week 3 of the NFL Preseason is the closest thing to the real deal fans can get. The Pittsburgh Steelers are set to continue their 2019 preseason on Sunday night when Mike Vrabel, Marcus Mariota, and the rest of the Tennessee Titans host the Steelers in Week 3.
This will be the first and only chance for Steelers fans to see all of the healthy first-team players before the regular season kicks off in two weeks. With the Steelers working through a simulated work week in preparation for Sunday night’s game, for about a quarter fans will get to see a preview of what to expect in 2019.
Ben Roethlisberger has started he expects to start the game but is unsure how many series he will see. Players such as Maurkice Pouncey, David DeCastro, Joe Haden, and Vince Williams who have not participated in preseason games in 2019 will get a chance to see their first action if they are deemed healthy enough come game time. Can rookies Devin Bush and Zach Gentry get back on the field after missing Week 2? Will Steelers’ former first-round picks Bud Dupree and Artie Burns continue their strong showings form last week? Will Steelers fans finally get to see Sutton Smith in stadium?
All of these questions will be answered throughout the rest of the team’s preseason. Get all the information you need so you can enjoy the Week 3 showdown below:
