The Pittsburgh Steelers are taking the field again just one week after their preseason debut in the Hall of Fame Game. The Steelers are still expected to rest some of their starters to get a better look at the other players getting their shot at sticking with an NFL team.
Will there be more players taking field against the Eagles? Will the Steelers offensive line look more like the group fans expect to see come September? Will the defense continue to ratchet up the pressure regardless of which players are on the field?
This Thursday will answer these questions as the Steelers look to continue their preseason on a positive note. Make sure you get all the information you need below so you can enjoy the Steelers Week 1 preseason game:
