The Pittsburgh Steelers face off in another late afternoon contest this week. The Steelers head into Foxboro to face the New England Patriots. Coverage is slated to begin at 4:15 with a game time start shortly after that. CBS has the double header this week, so if you are not in the Pittsburgh or Massachusetts areas, be wary that some of the game might get clipped if the early games like the Chiefs and Bills go late. I’m surprised to see that regardless of the Steelers poor record (2-5) that CBS would choose just about everyone not in the Baltimore and Cleveland areas to watch the Black & Gold get sizzled by Tom Brady and the Pats. Despite Brady having far from a typical season of annihilating secondaries, he is sure to have his way with the Steelers. The Steelers never fair well in Foxboro, so maybe CBS and the NFL secretly (or not so secretly) want most of the nation to witness once again the Steelers tank another game in the spotlight. Steeler Nation will also have to suffer the likes of Nantz and Simms giving ‘jobs’ to Brady and the Pats all game long. I wonder if they get sore from that?
