"We felt it was better for us to save that bye week for the middle of the year than it was to give it up," Bisciotti said June 13 on a conference call with permanent seat license holders at M&T Bank Stadium. "We asked them – and we're not guaranteed – to give us a home game [after London] and we got that. It's Pittsburgh. If I had my druthers, I would have rather it been maybe some other team. But the good news about playing Pittsburgh is we know them well. We know their personnel. We play them all the time. Even though it's going to be one of our toughest games, we certainly won't have to get back on a plane. We'll be playing a team, though a very good team, [that] we are very familiar with."
