With that in mind, let's go over one of the most popular MUT 21 theme teams, the Pittsburgh Steelers, and some important players to pick up.

Steelers Theme Team


Theme teams in MUT 21 keep things interesting, and a very popular franchise with great potential for it is the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Steelers have had a range of exciting talents throughout the years. These players gel together for a fantastic Ultimate Team theme lineup in Madden 21.

For players that put together a Steelers Theme Team in Madden 21, there are some pieces you can't miss.

The key players

Let's start with the core pillars for a Steelers theme team right now.

At the time of writing the Most Feared promo is here, and it brings a massive 92 OVR Troy Polamalu card.

ENFORCER: Polamalu can dominate from the secondary

It's a pricy card, but you can get it from a set, which is a nice way to slowly build to it rather than make a heavy investment at the Auction House.


Of course, defense is pretty dominant in the Steelers theme team, as there is a 92 OVR Mean Joe Greene Legends card you can get, and a 91 OVR Ryan Shazier from The 50.

To get some pass rush you can pick up a 90 OVR TJ Watt TOTW card, that is also now available as a Series Redux.

But what about the offense?

Scoring some points

There is a mega 91 OVR Chase Claypool TOTW card. This comes with 92 speed to get behind any defense.

FLASH: Claypool got this for scoring four TDs in Week 5

There are a couple of running backs, with a 89 OVR James Conner Rising Stars card and a 89 OVR Jerome Bettis Legends so you can absolutely pound the rock.


Filling in the rest

Be sure to hit up the Team Affinity sets to earn some nice players across several positions.

There's an 89 OVR Mike Hilton in Team Standouts and an 88 OVR Heath Miller in Team Diamonds.

You can also earn a free 85 OVR Ben Roethlisberger in Rivalz.

Knowing Pittsburgh's amazing history there will be Jack Lambert and Mel Blount cards in the future too.

There are also ex-Steelers that you can use the Power Up items from to keep building your squad. That means Le'Veon Bell and even Antonio Brown can make an appearance in your team.
