Steelers Release 2006 Regular Season Schedule

PITTSBURGH — The Steelers will play at least four national primetime games, including the NFL's Kickoff Weekend opener on Thursday, Sept. 7, it was announced today when the National Football League released its 2006 regular season schedule.

The Steelers will kick off their season at home against the Miami Dolphins on Sept. 7, at 8:30 p.m. on NBC. Pittsburgh's second game of the season will also be a nationally televised primetime game on the road against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Monday, Sept. 18 at 8:30 p.m. The team's other primetime games are at San Diego on Sunday, Oct. 8 (8:15 p.m.) and a Thursday, Dec. 7 home game at 8 p.m. against division rival Cleveland Browns.

"We are excited to be able to kick-off the 2006 NFL season with a nationally televised primetime game at Heinz Field," said Steelers president Art Rooney. "It will be the ideal setting for our fans in Pittsburgh and around the world to watch as we begin our defense of the Super Bowl championship."

Pittsburgh's remaining home schedule includes a Week 3 match-up against defending AFC North champion Cincinnati Bengals (Sept. 24). The Kansas City Chiefs will visit Pittsburgh for the first time since 1989 when they play at Heinz Field on Oct. 15. The Steelers will host the Denver Broncos in a rematch of the 2005 AFC Championship Game on Sunday, Nov. 5, at 4:15 p.m. The New Orleans Saints will make their first trip to Pittsburgh since 1993 on Sunday, Nov. 12. On Dec. 3, Pittsburgh will host the NFC South champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Steelers will close out their home schedule on Christmas Eve (Dec. 24) against the Baltimore Ravens.

The Steelers' remaining road schedule includes trips to play the Atlanta Falcons (Oct. 22) and Oakland Raiders (Oct. 29) in consecutive weeks, and consecutive road games against division rivals Cleveland (Nov. 19) and Baltimore (Nov. 26). Pittsburgh's final two road games will take place Dec. 17 at Carolina and Dec. 31 at Cincinnati.

All Sunday afternoon games during Weeks 10-15 and Week 17 are subject to flexible scheduling and could be moved into the Sunday night time slot (8:15 p.m.). The majority of games will be listed at 1 p.m. ET during "flex" weeks except for games played in the Pacific or Mountain Time zones which will be listed at 4:05 or 4:15 p.m.

The NFL will provide at least 12 days notice of time changes due to the "flex" scheduling. Week 17 start time changes could be decided on six days notice to ensure a game with playoff implications. Flexible scheduling will not impact Thursday, Saturday or Monday night games, and will not take place during Week 16 due to the holiday weekend.

The Steelers' four-game preseason schedule will include one nationally televised (ESPN) game on Friday, Aug. 25 at 8 p.m. at Philadelphia. Pittsburgh's home preseason schedule includes games against the Minnesota Vikings on Saturday, Aug. 19, at 8 p.m. and the team's preseason finale on Thursday, Aug. 31, at 7:30 p.m. versus the Carolina Panthers. The Steelers kick off their preseason on the road Saturday, Aug. 12, at Arizona at 4:05 p.m. (ET).

the sunday night games are the new targeted marquis match up and the game of the week. much how monday night games used to be. espn's monday nighters will be just how it used to be on sunday nights. lower key, not as good of matchups. no flex sched and espn will get no playoff games. the whole nation doesnt have cable so the monday nighter will no longer be the gem of the nfl like it used to be.

each year it goes by divison and since we added more divisions ... will be a few years before we get pushed to the latter. It could be good in a way... we have time to fix whatever problems we have early on, but of course injury wise ... doesnt help much.

I wish i was as optomistic as you lol .. I see another 11 - 5 season. I am leary about our running situation at the moment. For some reason i just felt better with Bettis in there. Staley has alot to prove yet and so i am taking the 11- 5 again.
