Steelers-Bills Most Widely Broadcast 1 p.m. Game This Week
Large stretches of the country will be able to tune in for the Pittsburgh Steelers game against the Buffalo Bills this week, as the game will be the most widely distributed 1 p.m. game on CBS affiliates.
The Bills and Steelers will of course air in their local markets, with KDKA-TV Pittsburgh carrying the game in Western Pennsylvania.
Large swathes of out-of-town fans will also be able to see the game, in markets such as Baltimore, Cincinnati, Dallas, Denver, Green Bay, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Philadelphia and Phoenix, according to 506 Sports. The inclusion of the Baltimore and Philadelphia markets means that almost all of Pennsylvania will be able to see the game.
The Steelers’ first two games on regional coverage had similarly wide distribution, but last week’s game against the New York Jets did not. The first career start of quarterback Kenny Pickett and the national attention surrounding potential Super Bowl candidate Buffalo increased interest this week. Fans in areas not showing the game can see it by subscribing to NFL Sunday Ticket on DirecTV.
The top CBS broadcast team of Jim Nantz, Tony Romo and Tracy Wolfson will have the call of the game.
In Pittsburgh on FOX, the Atlanta Falcons at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be the early game and the Dallas Cowboys at the Los Angeles Rams will be the 4:25 p.m. game.
This week’s three nationally televised broadcasts are the Indianapolis Colts at the Denver Broncos on Thursday Night Football (Amazon Prime Video), the Cincinnati Bengals at the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday Night Football (NBC-WPXI) and the Las Vegas Raiders at the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football (ESPN).
