The Pittsburgh Steelers are taking the field for the first time of the 2022 preseason. In fact, there will be a number of firsts on Saturday with players such as Mitch Trubisky, Kenny Pickett, George Pickens, and many more putting on a Steelers uniform to face another NFL opponent for the first time. It will also be the first game in the newly named Acrisure Stadium.
Will the Steelers offense look significantly different in the post-Ben Roethlisberger era? Will the Steelers offensive line show improvement from an underwhelming 2021 season? Will the defense continue to bring the pressure regardless of which players are on the field?
