The Steelers’ regular season finale on Jan. 3 against the Cleveland Browns will remain a 1 p.m. kickoff, the NFL announced on Sunday.
The NFL moves the schedules around in the final week of the regal season to ensure fairness amongst teams vying for the same playoff spots and to provide the best possible TV matchups.
The Steelers have already clinched the AFC North title and don’t have a lot to be playing for on Sunday, as they’re already locked into either the No. 2 or No. 3 seed. Cleveland needs either a win or an Indianapolis loss to make the postseason.
Most of the other notable AFC games will kick off at 1 p.m., as well, with Baltimore-Cincinnati, Miami-Buffalo, Tennessee-Houston and Indianapolis-Jacksonville all also in the early Sunday time slot.
All of the relevant ABC games will be broadcast by CBS, with Fox airing the NFC games. NBC will show Washington and Philadelphia on Sunday Night Football.
