PITTSBURGH (AP) The Pittsburgh Steelers will play division champions New England, New Orleans and Cincinnati in 2010, based on the NFL's scheduling formula.

The Steelers play home and away against AFC North rivals Cincinnati (10-5 and playing Sunday night), Baltimore (9-7) and Cleveland (5-11). They will also play the four AFC East teams: New England (10-6), the New York Jets (8-7 and playing Sunday night), Miami (7-9) and Buffalo (6-10).

Under the NFL's interconference rotation, they will meet New Orleans (13-3), Atlanta (9-7), Carolina (8-8) and Tampa Bay (3-13) of the NFC South.

The Steelers will meet third-place teams from the other two AFC divisions, Oakland (5-11) and Tennessee (8-8). Six opponents will be holdovers, including Miami, Oakland and Tennessee.

The NFL will announce sites and dates in April.

(I'm sure that Belicheat will arrange it with his pit lapdog Goodell so we have to play an away game in Cheatland at the most disadvantageous time for us. - mesa)

I hope they come to New England! I live here and would looooove a 2008 repeat.

Nah, the Jets and Pats are coming to Pittsburgh next year.. Miami and Buff came to Pitt 3 years and its on a rotation basis.


We are in NO and Tampa next year..


If NO wins the Super Bowl, I can see us being picked to play in that 1st game next year..

I hope it's an away game against the Titans. We hosted this year, so only fair. And frankly, I'd go to that game. Gonna try and make one road and one home game of the Steelers this year. Living in NM makes that very difficult.

Rotational basis?

2008 Pittsburgh at Cheats in Cheatland
2007 Pittsburgh at Cheats in Cheatland
2004 Cheats in Pittsburgh
2002 Pittsburgh at Cheats in Cheatland

Doesn't look rotational to me.

2007 is the last year we played AFC East teams.

every 3 years we will play the AFC East on a rotational basis home/away(2004 the game was in Pitt), thus the 2010 game will be in Pitt.

We played at NE last year because in 2007 both teams finished in 1st place.

2004 - the AFC North played the AFC East - got NE, NYJ at home, played at BUF, MIA
2007 - same thing, only got BUF, MIA at home and NE, NYJ on the road
2008 - Steelers played AFC South champion (IND) at home, AFC East champion (NE) on the road
2010 - next year of rotation, so NE, NYJ at home, BUF, MIA on the road.

Not sure about 2002, but I think it was the same scenario as 08.

So next year's schedule:

Home: CLE, BAL, CIN, NE, NYJ, OAK, CAR, ATL
Road: CLE, BAL, CIN, BUF, MIA, TEN, NO, TB

Wasn't 2002 was the 1st year of the 4 division 4 teams lineup?.

We were at NE because both of us were 1st place teams the year before.

I think it was, but I'm not sure. If so, then yes, it would be the same scenario as 2008 and the Steelers played at NE because they won the AFC East in 2001.

There's no conspiracy. Since 2002 we play every team in the AFC once every 3 years, and home and away alternates. Any additional times we play a team, it's because we finished at the same rank. Even those potential matchups are evenly split home and away by division - they just don't alternate yearly because it is impossible to do so.

The pattern can clearly be seen here. It's about as fair a system possible.:

Yes the 2002 Matchup was due to rotation. The Steelers played the AFC South that year.

Titans game will be at Tennessee.

Wooo, I hear the Titans host a good tailgate!

So which Steelers game? Gotta be the Ravens home game, those are my favorite to watch.

Rotational basis?

2008 Pittsburgh at Cheats in Cheatland
2007 Pittsburgh at Cheats in Cheatland
2004 Cheats in Pittsburgh
2002 Pittsburgh at Cheats in Cheatland

Doesn't look rotational to me.

If we finish the same rank as NE every year, we will play them every year and it will look like this:

2010: Home (Scheduled)
2011: Home (Same Rank)
2012: Home (Same Rank)
2013: Away (Scheduled)
2014: Away (Same Rank)
2015: Away (Same Rank)

etc.

We get a true year by year alternating schedule with the AFC South - so do the East and West (with each other). Our schedule with the West is similar to above.

It all works out evenly. Only thing up to scheduling is what week and what time.

Obviously, some people do starting with the person that started the thread and with the posters following that have replied.

Why does it so often seem that someone wants to jump into a thread and say something snide about what the topic of said thread is?

If you aren't interested then stay out.

I care who they play. As a Steeler fan living in California, it's hard to get to see them play in person. I got to go to Soldier Field this past season to see them play the Bears. Costs for that trip were offset because I have a sister-in-law in Chicago. My wife got to see her sister, and I got to see the Steelers!

I'm already looking ahead to 2010. Hope to take my 78-year old Dad to either the New Orleans or Tampa game (he lives in Alabama). Also hoping the Steelers game against the Raiders is in Oakland so I can catch them there.

We all want them to win every game, but some of us plan vacations around when and where the Steelers play!

Ok, thanks.

That's why this site is better than the news. I couldn't even find this info posted yet on steelers.com

Sure! You also have the option of taking your dad to Nashville to see them play the Titans.
