The Pittsburgh Steelers will face off against the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore as part of the trio of Thanksgiving games being played on Turkey Day. Coverage begins at 8:30pm EST and will be part of the NBC Football Night in America. Pre-game coverage begins with Tony Dungee and the boys at 8pm. It’s a nationally televised game, so everyone in Steeler Nation will be able to enjoy this one.
Because it’s part of the NBC FNA, boring Al Michaels and the somewhat reliable Cris Collinsworth will be calling the game. I hope this will be a tight and exciting game for all four quarters because Al and Cris have a tendency to quickly move away from the game and drone on and on about ‘other things’ once the game appears out of reach. As always, you can switch over to Billy and the boys if Al puts you to sleep and Collinsworth goes on a tangent about how good these games were when Ray Lewis still played for the Ravens.
The Steelers will look to extend their winning streak to four games and take command of the 6th seed playoff spot. If the Steelers lose this one, the nail just might be hammered into the coffin for this season. The Steelers defeated the Ravens, who look like a shell of their Super Bowl run selves from last season, the first time they faced off this season. The Ravens, despite their struggles and the Steelers surging play, are still favored by 3.
