2011 NFL Schedule Released: Pittsburgh Steelers With Five Primetime Television Games

After a long day of waiting, the NFL has released the 2011 schedule. We already knew who the six-time Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers were scheduled to play, we just didn't know the specifics of how the schedule would look. And really, the sequencing of games matters quite a bit. For instance, last year the Steelers played three consecutive road games before hosting the New England Patriots. You can't convince me that the Steelers were a bit flat that night after playing away from Heinz Field for three consecutive weeks.

But that was last year. Let's see what's on tap for the 2011 season....provided there is a 2011 NFL season.
