Steelers locks for televised games in 2020
Four primetime games:
Unless you are one of the 16 million homes in the United States that watch television with an antenna, you’ll be able to see the Steelers four times- Monday, Sept. 14 at 7:05 p.m. ET at the New York Giants; on Thanksgiving, Thursday, Nov. 26 at 8:20 p.m. ET against Baltimore; Sunday, Dec. 13 at 8:20 p.m. ET at Buffalo and Monday, Dec. 21 at 8:15 p.m. ET.
And if you are one living in one of those 16 million homes, you’ve long had to make alternative plans for watching Monday Night Football, but you are getting the Steelers, barring power outage, imprisonment, or some other unforeseen circumstance at least twice.
And if you are in prison, by all means, break out. This is the Steelers we’re talking about! Your cell will still be waiting for you after the game.
Week 9 @ Dallas Nov. 8th, 4:25 p.m. ET
The NFL’s equivalent of Dodgers-Yankees or Celtics-Lakers meets just once every four years and the powers that be have made this the primary game of this Sunday afternoon.
To punish the markets of Miami and Phoenix the NFL has scheduled the Dolphins to play in Arizona at the same time, but unless you live in south Florida or central Arizona, you’re guaranteed to get this game on FOX.
Week 7 @ Baltimore Oct. 25th, 1 p.m. ET
For almost the entire time of the division’s history, the AFC North championship has gone through either Pittsburgh or Baltimore.
We’ll bet that continues in 2020, so this game has much more national appeal than the other three offerings on CBS at this time, Cleveland at Cincinnati, the Chargers at Miami, and Buffalo at the New York Jets.
