Steelers will be arriving in time for a meal and then warmups prior to kickoff this Sunday.

Will Late Arrival Hurt Steelers?

Teams traveling to the away stadium in the NFL are, by rule, supposed to arrive at least the day prior to the game  This Sunday the Steelers will be showing up just mere hours before game time.  The Steelers were meant to stay at a hotel in Jersey the night prior and then head to MetLife Stadium.  In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, many parts of New Jersey and NYC are just devastated.  The team has decided, and subsequently granted by the NFL, to not burden those who are trying to recover from the hurricane and spend the night in the ‘Burgh before heading to Jersey.  The Steelers will arrive in time to have a pre-game meal and then off to warmups at MetLife.

Certainly a good will move by the Steelers and the NFL by allowing them to remain in Pittsburgh only mere hours before kickoff.  However, will this hurt the team in any way – whether it be physical, mental or emotional preparedness?

Will late arrival to Jersey and MetLife Stadium hurt the team?

    I don’t see how it will. They sleep in their own bed, the plane ride is less than 1 HR and its an afternoon game. If they lose Sunday, this will NOT be a reason why!
