The Pittsburgh Steelers do not play until Monday, so there will be a full slate of NFL games available to the Pittsburgh market, including a crucial AFC North battle, on a Sunday without the Black and Gold on the air.
The most important one for Steelers interests will be the 1 p.m. game on CBS (KDKA), which features the Baltimore Ravens at the Cincinnati Bengals. The Ravens are 1-0 after handling the Houston Texans last week, while the Bengals are 0-1 after losing their opening week game to the Cleveland Browns.
If the Bengals, who are three-point favorites, take care of business against the Ravens, and the Steelers can defeat the Browns on Monday Night Football, we could be looking at a four-way tie in the AFC North two weeks in. If the Ravens win, though, the Bengals would need a Browns win to avoid being alone in last place.
The Ravens have ruled out tackle Ronnie Stanley, cornerback Marlon Humphrey, safety Marcus Williams and center Tyler Lunderbaum. Tight end Mark Andrews is questionable, along with three Bengals: linebacker Markus Bailey, defensive end Joseph Ossai and running back Chris Evans.
The other games available will have fewer storylines of local import. The FOX (WPGH) broadcast will feature the Seattle Seahawks at the Detroit Lions at 1 p.m.
The national 4:25 p.m. broadcast window on CBS has the Aaron Rodgers-less New York Jets traveling to Dallas to take on the Cowboys.
On Sunday Night Football on NBC (WPXI), the Miami Dolphins will play at the New England Patriots. The Dolphins and Jets are tied at the top of the AFC East at 1-0, while the Patriots will want to avoid falling into a two-game hole.
