Default Next Year.......... the Pats* and the Saints

Although it's a little early to start talking about next year, I thought this was interesting.

A glimpse at what we have to face next year. We get our shot at Tommy Boy* at home for a change (no pun intended )

How is the home team decided for non-divisional games?

Steelers Q&A with Ed Bouchette

Q: How is the home team decided for non-divisional games? The PG reported on Monday that Sunday's game against the Chiefs will be eighth time in the past nine games between the two teams that the game will be in Kansas City. Is this ever considered when the schedules are made?

Joe Deffner, Forest, Va.

BOUCHETTE: When the NFL expanded to 32 teams in 2002, it also went to a scheduling formula that guarantees teams will play on a rotating basis. Besides playing each team in your own division twice, each NFL team will play teams from one other division in the AFC and one in the NFC. That leaves to games left and they play those based on where they finish the previous season.

This season, for example, the Steelers play the first-place teams from the AFC North (Miami) and South (Tennessee). Home-and-away is also predetermined, so no inequity such as the Steelers always going to Kansas City will take place. The schedule already is set for 2010. In addition to their own division, the Steelers will play at home: New England, New York Jets, Atlanta, Carolina and one team from AFC West based on their finish in the division. On the road they will play at Buffalo, at Miami, at New Orleans, at Tampa Bay and at AFC South team based on their finish.

It's about time we get to play the Patriots* at HOME. I was wondering how that worked.

Last time we played the Pats at Heinz, I think, was 2004, Ben's rookie year. Didn't we break their 20 win streak then followed that up by beating the Eagles the next week?

It sure had been a long time since we played the Pats at Heinz Field... I hope we beat the snot out of them next year!



43 Hitman, we did indeed beat the Eagles the following week. Here is the Steelers 2004 schedule. http://espn.go.com/nfl/teams/schedul...=pit&year=2004

The Saints and Steelers should be a good matchup. I hope we just demolish Brady on the turf at Hines field.

This is all great, but there are still 7 games plus playoffs left this season.

We played the Pats last at home in 05 and lost by a FG. Randel El had that bone head lateral that the Pats recovered early in the game.

Yeah, but now we'll have more time to lick our chops in anticipation of playing the Cheats* in OUR HOUSE for a change.

The Steelers and Saints should match up very well - I'll really look forward to that game too.
