Speculation on the 2015 regular season schedule

ESPN's Adam Schefter published some random thoughts about the NFL -- two weeks is just two long to wait for the Super Bowl, even for Mr. Schefter -- and one of those items involves the Steelers:

Who will play in the 2015 regular-season opener? The team that might have the best chance of playing in next season's regular-season opener is not New England or Seattle; it's Pittsburgh. Next season, the Steelers play road games at New England and at Seattle. Not only that, but they might be the most compelling away opponent on those teams' schedules.
New England's home opponents include the AFC East teams, Jacksonville, Tennessee, Washington, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. Seattle's home opponents include the NFC West teams, Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland, Carolina and Pittsburgh. So I believe the Steelers have the best chance to play in the Thursday night opener.
Others have made this same bit of conjecture, but I tend to put more credence into it when Adam Schefter says it may be so.
