What a difference a week makes. Week 2 of the NFL season is now behind us and new challenges for Week 3 are on the horizon as the Pittsburgh Steelers head west to take on George Kittle, Kyle Shanahan, and the rest of the San Francisco 49ers. While the Steelers are staring down a 0-2 record, they face a 2-0 49ers team who have won their first two games by 14 and 24 points.
After suffering severe injuries to their franchise quarterback and starting safety, the Steelers placed Ben Roethlisberger and Sean Davis on the Reserved/Injured List. Can Mason Rudolph get the job done? Will newly acquired safety Minkah Fitzpatrick make an impact his first week? Will the entire team step up in Roethlisberger’s absence? Can the Steelers dig out of their 0-2 hole and remain relevant for the 2019 season?
This Sunday should answer many of these questions as the new-look Steelers give fans a glimpse into the remainder of 2019. Make sure you get all the information you need below so you can enjoy the Week 3 showdown:
