NFL football is back! Week 1 of the 2023 season officially kicked off with the Chiefs and Lions on Thursday night. Now we have a loaded slate of games for the first Sunday of the season. The Pittsburgh Steelers are opening things up against a very talented San Francisco 49ers team.

Leading up to the game, we were uncertain if 49ers star pass rusher and reigning Defensive Player of the Year, Nick Bosa, would be suiting up in this contest. However, Bosa was able to ink his deal just days before the game and will suit up against the Steelers in Week 1.

This will be an incredible test for Kenny Pickett and the Pittsburgh Steelers. Pickett bounced back from a rocky start as a rookie to lead his team to a 7-2 record since the bye week last year. After he finished the 2023 preseason with a perfect passer rating and scored a touchdown on all five of his offensive possessions, Pickett will get a brutal task against the number-one-ranked scoring defense from 2022.

With how crowded the AFC race to the playoffs is expected to be this year, every single game matters. Fans are overflowing with excitement for the Steelers at the moment, and this should be an electrifying way to kick off Pittsburgh's season. So what time do they play today?

What time do the Steelers play today?

Who: San Francisco 49ers vs Pittsburgh Steelers

Where: Acrisure Stadium

Date: Sunday, September 10th

Time: 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time

With the Steelers projected to be a team on the rise and the 49ers previously playing in back-to-back NFC Championships games, it seemed like this game would have been played in primetime. However, that won't be the case. The Steelers will host the Niners in Pittsburgh at Acrisure Stadium.

Kickoff will take place at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time and the game will be broadcast on Fox (check your local listings). If you are out of network, you can watch the game with a subscription to NFL+ or with the NFL Sunday Ticket package from YouTube TV.

This promises to be an exciting home opener for the Pittsburgh Steelers against a formidable opponent in the 49ers. Mike Tomlin is 10-5-1 all-time in Week 1, according to Statmuse.com, but he will have his work cut out for him against Kyle Shanahan's team. You won't want to miss it!
