The 2021 regular season is chugging on. The Pittsburgh Steelers find themselves coming off of a win for only the second time this season, and perhaps a new kind of streak can begin. As they head into their bye week, the Steelers are once again to Heinz Field for their first prime time game this season.
Will the Steelers defense be able to confuse Geno Smith in his first start since 2017? Can the offense put together two solid weeks in a row? Will the Steelers get some much needed momentum going into their bye?
This Sunday will hopefully answer all these questions as the Steelers look to get their 2021 season back on track. Make sure you get all the information you need below so you can enjoy the Week 6 showdown:
