BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Wednesday morning, we got a look at some of the first games of the NFL’s 2021-22 season.

And that includes a revealing of the Bills’ first opponent of the year — the Pittsburgh Steelers.

NFL on CBS released the September 12 schedule, which shows the Bills taking on the Steelers at 1 p.m. that day.

Last season, the Steelers lost to the Bills 26-15 in a season where Buffalo only lost three regular season games. The following week, Buffalo went on to secure the AFC East Championship with a win over the Denver Broncos.

The Steelers, who were also champions of their division (AFC North), finished the regular season at 12-4.

The full NFL schedule will be released Wednesday night at 8 p.m.
