The announcers for Saturday’s Steelers’ game against the Cincinnati Bengals have been revealed. Pittbsurgh will have the game called by Noah Eagle and Todd Blackledge while Kathryn Tappen will be the sideline reporter, the team’s game release revealed. The game will on NBC and start at 4:30 p.m. It is the second straight game the Steelers will play on Saturday after playing last week’s game against the Colts in the same timeslot.
This game is huge for both teams. The Bengals are surging in a massive way behind Jake Browning and have not lost since Pittsburgh knocked them off in Cincinnati.
In five games, one in relief and four as a starter, Browning has a 73.6% completion percentage, a 107.1 passer rating, a 59.1 QBR and a 7.45 ANY/A — all better than Burrow this year. For that matter, all but one better than Burrow last year when he made the Pro Bowl.
If Browning had attempted enough passes to qualify, he’d be first in completion percentage, second in passer rating, 11th in QBR and third in ANY/A among all NFL quarterbacks.
That’s impressive. Meanwhile, Pittsburgh will turn to Mason Rudolph as quarterback to try and find something as the group tries to fight through its struggles in all three phases.
