The Detroit Lions take to the road for their only preseason game of 2021 away from home. Saturday night’s matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers will see the Lions attempt to hang the first preseason loss on the Steelers, who have won two exhibitions from playing in the Hall of Fame game.

Detroit lost, 16-15, at home to Buffalo last week. The Steelers rallied from a 16-7 halftime deficit against the Philadelphia Eagles to beat their in-state rival, 24-16.
