The exact schedules have yet to be set in stone for 2013, but the Steelers know who they are playing and where for the 2013 season. Take a look at the list. To be somewhat realistic, the Steelers have a pretty easy home schedule and a rather brutal away schedule.
Green Bay Packers
Minnesota Vikings – London Game
New England Patriots
New York Jets
As you can see, the home games are with the majority of teams struggling in 2012. Certainly 2013 could be a different story, but teams like the Browns, Bills, Dolphins, and Titans don’t show any promise any time soon. The away game schedule is brutal. Of course Baltimore will always be tough away, then there is New England, Green Bay, and the Vikings in London. The Vikings will be a tough game due to the time zone change as well as the Vikings playing tough lately with the resurgence of Adrain Peterson.
Unless the Steelers have another Grade A draft and at least some decent move in free agency, you can expect the 2013 season could be another potential 8-8 or 9-7 season. Order of schedule won’t be announced until much later. Stay tuned to see how tough this thing really gets.
