The Steelers will not be part of the NFL’s opening game in New Orleans, according to Steelers president Art Rooney. The Steelers will open at home.
“We won’t be playing in New Orleans,” Rooney declared Thursday to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
“We have to be home that weekend because of the baseball schedule.
Unless they wanted to play us away three weeks in a row, and I don’t
think they’ll do that.”
