London or Mexico? Where would you prefer to see the Steelers play abroad?

New, comments

The Pittsburgh Steelers could find themselves playing outside the continental United States in 2020. Where would be the best place to play?

NFL: International Series-Houston Texans at Jacksonville Jaguars Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The 2020 NFL Regular Season schedule won’t be released until spring, but the opponents for all 32 teams, and the locations of those games, are already set in stone. All that needs to be attached are dates and times.

With that said, the Pittsburgh Steelers will be traveling to play the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2020. The AFC North and AFC South are paired this season, so the division is split in terms of home and away games. Since the Steelers will play the Jaguars on the road, the next logical question is where will they be traveling to play?

Will they be going to sunny Florida?

Or will they be going overseas?

Maybe south of the border to Mexico?

The Jaguars have long been the team who forfeits home games to help expand the game across United States borders, and the Steelers have been a team who has said they are willing to play in those neutral site games, especially in Mexico.

Steelers Team President Art Rooney II met with local media Wednesday, and reiterated what fans have known for years, the team is okay traveling to Mexico to play.

This via Joe Rutter of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:

The Steelers have a ridiculous fan contingent in Mexico, second maybe only to the Dallas Cowboys and Oakland, now Las Vegas, Raiders, but the Steelers have also played games over the pond in London.

It was 2013 when the Steelers traveled to London to play the Minnesota Vikings. It was this game where Mike Tomlin was criticized for his travel schedule, and it capped off an 0-4 start to the regular season that year.

Considering the Steelers have openly volunteered to play south of the border, and have also played overseas in the past decade, where would you rather see them play? I think the obvious choice is for them to play in Florida and not have to experience an excessive amount of traveling, but if you had to choose where they played, where would it be?

London or Mexico?
