There are few things which can get the sting of a disappointing 2016 season out of 31 NFL fan bases’ mouths, and the release of the latest NFL schedule is one of those moments.
For fans of the Pittsburgh Steelers, the new schedule equates to a chance to forget about the team’s 2016 AFC Championship loss to the eventual Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots, and also for fans to start making plans to travel to games either on the road, or at Heinz Field.
