Football is returning to Heinz Field tonight as the Pittsburgh Steelers will take on the Buffalo Bills in their second preseason game. The teams have already spent two days with joint practices together as training camp closed out at Saint Vincent College. Now they’ll compete for real, or about as real as preseason is.
The Steelers are looking to take significant steps forward from their first preseason loss to the New York Giants which included the defense allowing a 73-yard touchdown run, one of the types of plays the team fell victim too way too many times last season. The offensive unit, including Ben Roethlisberger, is expected to spend some more time on the field tonight as they only played one series primarily in Game 1. The team will also look to try to contain Bills rookie WR Sammy Watkins, who burned them in practice this past week.
If you’re headed out to Heinz Field to check out the action, don’t forget to review the bag guidelines that were implemented for the first time last season. If you’re watching from home, we’ve got you covered.
