    Steelers playing the Vikings in London in 2013

    This per Ed Bouchette and Jamison Hensely via Twitter. They'll be the "road" team, so don't worry about losing a home game.

    It definitely bothers me less that we are the visiting team.


    It still sucks though!

    They will probably not hate it because their significant others will all go and will probably love it. Keep mama happy and everyone is happy!!!!!!

    If you haven't been to London, you should go. It is expensive but it is a great city.

    The league was too short-sighted regarding using the bye week to help soften the impact of a too-quick Sunday-to-Thursday turnaround for an extra night of primetime TV all season long...hopefully they will learn their lesson and at least schedule the bye around mandated international travel.

    Also, wasn't Dan Rooney trying to work something out to have us playing at Croke Park in Dublin in the near future? Why schedule us at Wembley in London now if that may be just around the bend as well?

    Rooneys note they had a particular family member pushing for a game in Ireland. Commish believes build London fanbase better w/2 games there

    I'm pretty sure I saw somewhere that the Steelers will have a bye following the London game.

    I'm not a big fan of these games, but less disappointed with it being a road game.

    Goodell doesn't like the Rooney's or the Steelers.
