The Pittsburgh Steelers are preparing to kick off the 2016 regular season by a trip to the 2015 NFC East Champion Washington Redskins on Monday Night Football. The prime time game will embark a journey for the Steelers which fans are hoping will end in a 7th Lombardi trophy, but a lot can change along the way.
The Steelers have had a rough start to 2016 with players injured, controversy and suspensions, but the team still has the cornerstone of the team in Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown to help keep them afloat until some of the other injured and suspended players re-join the team.
It will be an intriguing game, at least from the standpoint of no one really knows what to expect from the home team in this matchup.
