The Pittsburgh Steelers travel to Washington to take on the Redskins in the first Monday Night Football game of the new season.
The Steelers will be without running back Le'Veon Bell, who is suspended the first three games of the season for violating the league's substance abuse policy. Pittsburgh returns one of the league's highest scoring offenses, led by veteran quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
The Redskins will attempt to become back-to-back NFC East champions, a feat that has not been accomplished since the Philadelphia Eagles won four straight division crowns from 2001–04. Washington is led by Kirk Cousins, who had a spectacular 2015 campaign in his first full season as a starter, throwing for 4,166 yards with 29 touchdowns.
