Steelers vs. Cardinals: TV schedule, radio, live stream


The Pittsburgh Steelers return home to the comforts of Heinz Field to take on a familiar face in the Bruce Arians-led Arizona Cardinals. The Steelers are fresh off of their thrilling Monday Night Football victory over the Chargers while the Cardinals are riding an NFC West-best 4-1 record.

This game is a rematch of the unforgettable Super Bowl XLIII where the Steelers won 27-23 on the last-minute miraculous catch and throw from Ben Roethlisberger to Santonio Holmes. The game also featured the unforgettable 100-yard interception touchdown run by James Harrison just before the end of the first half.

The Arizona Cardinals stayed on the east coast following their 42-17 thumping of the Detroit Lions to not have to deal with the jet-lag on another cross-country trip. This game will be a true test for the Steelers defense to go up against a true passing team and a team that has scored 190 points in five games.

The Steelers will also have to master the task of blitzing Carson Palmer while not giving up the run to either Chris or David Johnson. The Cardinals are averaging about 5 yards per carry while the Steelers defense is giving up just over 100 rushing yards per game.

No one is more anxious to get out on the field for this game than Ben Roethlisberger, who is still recovering from an MCL sprain and bone bruise but began practicing on a limited basis this week. He would be a long-shot to be available for Sunday’s game.

Michael Vick and the Steelers offense will have to avoid the slow start they began the Chargers game with and getting Martavis Bryant back might just do the trick. This would be an excellent game for the Steelers to steal a win while waiting for Roethlisberger to return from injury.

If they can keep that mentality of playing to win the game like Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin spoke about in his Tuesday press conference, they might just have a chance.

"“I’m just trying to win football games. I just don’t live in fear. I don’t worry about those things. I can’t. I can’t waste time worrying about that. I have to do what I feel is appropriate, and most of it is gut-oriented, not only in terms of the men we’re working with but also based on what has transpired in that stadium to get us to that point.” – Mike Tomlin"
