As the Pittsburgh Steelers move out of the Heinz Field era into whatever it will be called with Acrisure Stadium, there are a number of things that happened at “Heinz Field” that are now complete. In the most recent episode on Steelers Stat Geek podcast, I outlined several records From Heinz Field to give it a proper statistical sendoff.

Even though it will be the same seats, scoreboard, locker rooms, and sidelines all in the same building for the 2022 season, it just won’t be Heinz Field anymore. For this reason, the following records will be the ones that stand at Heinz Field moving forward. As a reminder, the following numbers are for NFL teams and individuals at the Steelers home stadium from 2001 through 2021 in both the regular and postseason as recorded by Pro Football Reference.
