In just a few days, two of the most storied NFL franchises will take the field for a pivotal AFC showdown.
The Pittsburgh Steelers host the Las Vegas Raiders in what promises to be one of the best games of the weekend. Both teams are coming off of huge upset wins that give them momentum headed into Week 2.
The Steelers and Raiders have two of the best fanbases in the NFL. With that in mind, some Raiders fans thought they would have a chance at taking over Heinz Field on Sunday.
Well, Steelers star Cam Heyward made it clear that’s not going to happen. He knows the Steelers fans will be out in full force.
“I saw on thing about Raider Nation about to have our Black and Silver on them,” he said. “That’s not going to happen. This isn’t like the Chargers where everybody goes and has a home game. When you come here, it is Black and Gold all day.”

Fans couldn’t help but notice his shot at the Chargers.
During the 2019 season, the Steelers traveled to Los Angeles to face off against the Chargers. This was before the team’s new stadium was built, so they played at Dignity Health Sports Park.
Pittsburgh fans took over the stadium with their black and gold jerseys and their Terrible Towels.
That won’t be happening for Raiders fans in Pittsburgh this weekend.
