The Pittsburgh Steelers are taking the field again as they are entering the second half of the 2021 preseason. The Steelers are still expected to play most of their starters while still trying to get a look at the other players getting their shot at sticking with an NFL team.

Will the Steelers have a better first half than their previous two games? Will the Steelers offensive line get an extended look as the first unit is finally expected to start the game? Will the defense continue to bring the pressure regardless of which players are on the field?
