The Pittsburgh Steelers will face off against the Buffalo Bills at Heinz Field during the early slot on Sunday. Coverage will carry over from the pre-game show into kickoff which is slated around 1:00 PM EST. Steeler Nation, you are out of luck if you live outside western PA or the Buffalo areas. CBS is pimping hard the Bengals v. Baltimore game, and most of the nation will witness those two go at it. Sorry, folks. Hope you either have your Sunday NFL Ticket or can stream WDVE if you want to see/hear those Steelers. Sadly, to make matters worse, the Jacksonville v. Tennessee game will be covered by more square miles during the same time slot – gag.
Here’s today’s broadcasting map for the early 1 PM EST set:
This week, Marv Albert and Rich Gannon are calling the game. Gannon was fairly terrible when he was part of the announcing squad in Oakland two weeks ago. Marv always calls a pretty decent game and tends not to play any favorites they way Nantz or Fox usually do. Hey at we don’t have to put up with Dierdorf or Fouts – unless you’re stuck having to watch the ‘national’ game. Hold on to your hats if you are going – it’s going to be a windy game. Hopefully that won’t effect the kicking game for Sushi too much. Surprisingly, the Steelers are three point favorites.
