The Pittsburgh Steelers will face off against the Miami Dolphins 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 on CBS. The games are pretty divided up across the nation this week. Much of the south will see the Steelers host Miami and the ‘Pittsburgh West’ area snow birds will also get to see Mike Wallace return to his old stomping grounds.
Here’s the broadcasting map for 1pm on CBS for Sunday:
CBS is sending Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts to call the game on Sunday. Eagle is a solid announcer and calls a pretty clean game with little detail left out. Fouts is an ok color commentator. He’s more tolerable than Simms and Dierdorf but has a tendency to state the obvious a little too frequently – “You’re not a winner until you win a game.” Easy on the heavy handed philosophy there Danny Boy. As usual, Billy and the boys on ‘DVE are always a good substitute if you feel inclined to mute the TV and turn on the radio (or stream on the web). I’m sure that will quite a bit of talk surrounding Mike Wallace’s return to Pittsburgh, and hopefully it will mainly be about how he’s been shut down for the day.
