Steelers vs Falcons to Air across the South



Steelers George Pickens

This Sunday afternoon’s clash between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Atlanta Falcons will be broadcast on CBS in 15 different states. The game will be shown in most of Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and parts of Ohio, Kentucky, and Virginia. It will also be the early ‘A’ game on TV in the South — in all of South Carolina, Mississippi, Alabama, and Louisiana; some of Arkansas, Texas, Florida, and Tennessee; and most of Georgia and North Carolina.

A good part of the country will watch the New York Jets’ visit to Minnesota, while other games on the 1 p.m. docket are Cleveland’s trip to Houston and Denver’s matchup at Baltimore.

The Browns’ contest, which also marks the regular-season return of quarterback Deshaun Watson, will only be broadcasted in Ohio, Texas, and small parts of Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Indiana.

The Steelers are aiming to win two games in a row for the first time this season, while Atlanta has lost three of its last four. The Falcons were defeated by Washington this past Sunday, dropping their record to 5-7. However, in an NFC South division where nobody is above .500, Atlanta is only half a game behind the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the grouping.

Pittsburgh has come out on top in all but three of the teams’ prior 17 meetings. The Falcons’ last win in the series was in Oct. 2006, when Michael Vick was still behind center. Since then, the Steelers have won three outings against Atlanta — in 2010, 2014, and 2018. Dating back to 1981, Pittsburgh has downed the Falcons five out of six times on the road.
