Noon kick-off: Packers to square off with Steelers at Heinz Field
PITTSBURGH — The Green Bay Packers will visit Heinz Field on Sunday, August 23rd to tackle the Pittsburgh Steelers. It will be the 25th preseason meeting between Green Bay and Pittsburgh but just the sixth since 1970.
According to Packers.com, Green Bay leads the preseason series 14-9-1, and have won each of the last three matchups. The 14 wins are the most Green Bay has against any AFC team during the preseason.
Due to Major League Baseball moving the San Francisco Giants at Pittsburgh Pirates from a day game to a night game, the kickoff time for the Packers and Steelers was changed from 6 p.m. CDT to noon CDT. It will be the first time since 1995 that the Packers have played a preseason game that kicked off at noon CDT.
