The 2020 season is finally here! After what seemed to be the longest offseason ever, the Pittsburgh Steelers are finally ready to face the New York Giants on Monday Night Football. The Steelers are looking to find their way back to the postseason after two straight seasons falling one spot short. With the new playoff format having the team who had been the first one out now playing in the posteason, the Steelers are looking to do more than just make it there. This team has championship aspirations.
How will the lack of preseason games affect both teams? Is Ben Roethlisberger truly back from his elbow surgery almost a year ago? Will the Steeleres defense continue with their 2019 dominance?
