The NFL schedule is cyclical, and can be predicted for many years down the road except for a few opponents. Sure, the dates and times of these games have not been decided yet, but the location and opponent have long been settled.
When the Pittsburgh Steelers were slated to visit the Jacksonville Jaguars as one of eight away games, many wondered if the team would be playing in the continental United States, or possibly going to London for the second time, their last trip was in 2013 vs. the Minnesota Vikings.
The 2020 regular season schedule won’t be released until this spring, but Steelers fans know now the team will be playing the Jaguars in the sunshine state.
In the above release from the Jaguars organization, it reads:
“While the opponents for the games to be played in Wembley Stadium have not been determined, the Jaguars can confirm that their home games vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers and Chicago Bears in 2020 will remain in Jacksonville at TIAA Bank Field.”
This is good news for the fans who were weary of the Steelers potentially traveling overseas to play a game. However, this could also be bad news for fans who were looking at potentially traveling to a game in London to see the black-and-gold abroad.
Be sure to stay tuned to BTSC for the latest news and notes surrounding the black-and-gold as they press on through the 2020 offseason and prepare for the season ahead.
