The Pittsburgh Steelers 2021 schedule has officially been released. Even though the opponents have been known for some time, knowing exact dates, times, and locations for matchups make a difference when it comes to the expectations throughout the season. For example, the Steelers traveling to Minnesota for a Thursday night game after hosting the Ravens the previous Sunday makes for a much more difficult contest than if they were making the trip the week following their bye.

Although we are still 12 weeks away from the Hall of Fame Game, and 17 weeks away from the Thursday night kickoff of the NFL season, predicting the outcome of each game gives a baseline starting point for expectations for 2021. Things such as injuries and unexpected quality of play will greatly affect these matchups as they approach. Regardless, the hosts of The Steelers Preview podcast had a special Wednesday night edition of their show and predicted the outcome of each game from week-to-week.

Below are the predictions of Bryan Anthony Davis, Jeff Hartman, and Dave Schofield for the Steelers 2021 season.
