It’s long been established that the Pittsburgh Steelers would be wearing their 1934 throwback uniforms once again during the 2016 regular season and as of Wednesday we now know which game it is that they will be donning them.
This season the Steelers will wear their 1934 bumble-bee uniforms for the team’s October 9 game against the New York Jets at Heinz Field. It will mark the fifth straight season Pittsburgh will wear these particular throwback uniforms.
The Steelers enter 2016 with a 3-2 record in games that they have worn their 1934 throwbacks. They first wore them in 2012 during the team’s 80th season in professional football in their home games against the Washington Redskins and the Baltimore Ravens. In 2013, the Steelers wore them again against the Detroit Lions, and in 2014, they were worn against the Indianapolis Colts at home. Last season, the Steelers wore their 1934 throwbacks for their Week 8 home game against the Cincinnati Bengals. They lost that game 16-10.
Both of the loses the Steelers have suffered while wearing their 1934 throwbacks have come against AFC North teams as they also lost that game to the Ravens in 2012.
