The Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers will now attempt to derail their AFC North rivals’ late-season hopes in front of a national television audience.
The game between the Steelers and the Ravens on January 1 was moved from a 1 p.m. ET start to an 8:20 p.m. ET start at M&T Bank Stadium. This AFC North competition game knock the Rams-Chargers, who will presently play at 4:25 p.m. ET.
In order for the Ravens (10-5) to host a wild-card playoff game and win their first AFC North title in three years, which they secured on Saturday, they will likely need to win their final two games. Baltimore could likewise wipe out Pittsburgh (7-8) from postseason dispute – – on the off chance that previous games that Sunday haven’t finished the Steelers’ thin season finisher trusts as of now – – and hand Mike Tomlin the first losing time of his 16-year NFL head-instructing vocation.
The Ravens and Steelers will meet for the first time in prime time in four years. Over an 18-year period, Baltimore and Pittsburgh met 14 times in prime time, including nine consecutive meetings from 2007 to 2015.
It’s not surprising that the Steelers have won seven of the last 15 prime-time meetings, while the Ravens have won eight in this close rivalry.
