The men of Black and Gold first lost to the Houston Texans 30-6 on Sunday. When they wanted to get out of town, they were delayed for another plane issue.

A team spokesperson said that there were mechanical issues with the aircraft, WPXI reported. The Steelers flight finally got cleared to take off around 8:40 p.m. Sunday.

Last week, the Steelers had to make an emergency landing in Kansas City, sitting on the plane for more than 6 hours as they waited for a new plane to be flown from Atlanta to Kansas City before returning to Pittsburgh, The Athletic reported.

The Steelers won’t have to contend with flight issues this coming weekend.

They’re home at Heinz Field to take on the Ravens on Sunday at 1 p.m., NBC Sports reported.
