Steelers to play on Christmas again

The NFL turned into a grinch for the Steelers again.

They were the only team to play on all three holidays during the 2016 season, but they did not earn much sympathy from the league, which scheduled them to play at Houston late Christmas afternoon this year.

Instead of playing on Dec. 23 or even Christmas Eve, the league scheduled the Steelers for a 4:30 p.m. game on a Monday, one of only two games to be played on the holiday.

Defensive end Cam Heyward made his displeasure known about the second-consecutive game on Christmas with this Tweet last night:

“Wow surprise surprise let's play Christmas again.
