The 49ers host the Pittsburgh Steelers in their first home game of the season. It's also the first time in 30 years San Francisco enter their regular-season home opener with a 2-0 record. 

In what should be a loud homecoming for the squad, the 49ers will face a Ben Roethlisberger-less Steelers team after the quarterback underwent season-ending elbow surgery last week.

Defensive end Dee Ford will be a game-time decision as he's dealing with knee discomfort.
