Pittsburgh Steelers Preseason Details
The Pittsburgh Steelers are one of the NFL’s iconic franchises, and the road to another year of Steelers football always begins with preseason action. These games go a long way toward determining who will be on the team and help players develop chemistry with one another for cohesive units on both offense and defense. In addition, the preseason is a chance for players to prove themselves, and many Steelers players got their start in preseason plan and went on to have productive careers in the league.
One such player is James Conner, who went from taking snaps in the preseason to becoming one of the focal points of the Steelers offense during a period for the team. Conner, a graduate from the University of Pittsburgh, was given the chance to get some reps in among a crowded backfield at the time, but showed flashes of excellence that led to him winning the starting job. Conner eventually took full advantage of that opportunity, which originally came about thanks to his ability to shine in the preseason.
As far as teams that the Steelers frequently face in the preseason are concerned, it is the Carolina Panthers that the Steelers have something of a rivalry with in their preseason history.
