I will be in the North East with my family in the early part of next season. Me and one of my sons are Steelers fans, while the other son is an Eagles fan. We plan to go to two games while over there in consecutive weeks. We will definitely be going to Steelers and hopefully Eagles if the schedule works out (got to line up with some baseball games too).

But if it doesn't, which other game day experience would be the best for me and my boys out of the Bills, Jets, Giants, Patriots or Redskins - as we will be in all those areas at some point.

Thanks for your help.

The schedule for 2015 doesn't come out until April. You can get a general census of who the 8 home opponents will be, but you don't know when they will be: i.e. the Eagles will obviously play the Redskins, Giants, and Cowboys at home. In 2015 the Eagles play the NFC South (looks like the Saints and Bucs will be in Philly) along with the AFC East (which looks like the Bills and Dolphins will be making the trip to Philly), and the final 2 opponents for the Eagles will be the second place team out of the NFC North (Detroit) and the 2nd place team out of the NFC West (Arizona). 1 of those 2 will be at home while the other will be on the road.

The Giants and Redskins will have the same OOC opponents as the Eagles except the Giants & Redskins get the 3rd & 4th place teams out of the north and West.

Over in the AFC: The Steelers get the AFC West (looks like Raiders and Broncos will be the home opponents) as well as the NFC West (where the Cardinals & Niners will be coming to Pittsburgh). Their other 2 opponents will be the first place team out of the AFC East (Patriots) and the first place team out of the AFC South (Colts). The Ravens (another area team) will have the same schedule, except they get the 3rd place team out of the East (Dolphins.....again for what seems like the 10th straight season the Ravens will be playing them!) and the AFC South (Jags)
The Jets get the AFC South (Jags & Titans at home) and NFC East (Redskins & Eagles at home, Giants as the "road" team in the meadowlands) along with the last place team in the AFC North (Browns) and the AFC West (Raiders). Bills & Patriots have the same schedule except the Bills get the Chiefs (2nd in AFC West) and Bengals (second in AFC North) while the Pats get the Steelers (first in AFC North) and Broncos (first in AFC West).

So, even though the opponents are set when the dates are and who's playing who isn't set yet so hard to commit to something that isn't set. If your in Pittsburgh when the Ravens are there, they get the Pats at home, or the Broncos, the Redskins at home vs. one of their east rivals (especially the Cowboys or Eagles), the Eagles vs. any of their 3 divisional rivals) or even make it up to the Meadowlands for one of the special Jets/Giants regular season games would be good games but the tickets for those probably sell out quickly.

Thanks 7express, appreciate your thoughts. I know I need to wait until April for the confirmed schedule, I'm really trying to get a view of the best game day/stadium experiences of those other teams we don't support.

Personal preferences I know, but are there any that i should definitely steer clear of for any reason? Boys will be 13 and 11.

I would vote either Bills or Giants. No idea if Gillette Stadium could be fun, but I hate the Patriots. Driving through the NYC area is horrible, especially around gametime I'm sure. Bills could be fun. You could head down to Baltimore in your Steelers gear and enjoy a warm welcome.

Ravens weren't on the list for a reason. Thanks for your ideas.

Well I doubt Philadelphia fans would be real happy to see Pittsburgh fans in their stadium as well, FYI.
