The full 2018 Pittsburgh Steelers’ schedule will be released later tonight. But we seem to know one matchup already. The Steelers will travel to Tampa to play the Buccaneers on Monday Night Football September 24th, Week Three of the regular season.
It appears someone on the Bucs’ web staff screwed up and posted the schedule early. Greg Auman grabbed this screenshot.
Sure enough, this is (mistakenly) posted on Bucs’ official site right now. Would have home opener in Week 2 vs. defending champion Eagles. pic.twitter.com/ykcZKKikQS

Pittsburgh last played Tampa in 2014, losing to the Mike Glennon-led Bucs 27-24. The Steelers won the previous four meetings, once under Mike Tomlin, that one coming in 2010. Pittsburgh blew out Tampa that day, prevailing 38-13, a game started by Charlie Batch.
This will be the 11th meeting between these two teams since the merger. Pittsburgh is 8-2 in those previous ten, falling only in the aforementioned 2014 disaster and way back in 1998, a 16-3 defeat where Mike Alstott scored the only touchdown of the day.
We’ll know the official schedule later tonight and have the full slate for you guys on Steelers Depot.
UPDATE: 3:30 PM
The Patriot will travel to Pittsburgh in Week 15 for a 4:25 kickoff.
UPDATE: SNF, not MNF
UPDATE (4:49 PM)
One report has the Steelers opening the season by traveling to the Cleveland Browns.
Another primetime game only this one against the Panthers on TNF
Looks like these might be the games against the Bengals: week 6 and Week 17
