It was announced this morning that the Steelers week 13 home game against the Cincinnati Bengals, a week from this coming Sunday, will not be flexed to a night game and thus will remained as scheduled to kickoff at 1 p.m. EST on December 4th. There had been some consideration given to moving the game to the national Sunday night broadcast, but that will not end up being the case.
The Steelers return from their bye week today to begin preparations to take on the Kansas City Chiefs next Sunday night on the road at Arrowhead Stadium. The Chiefs will be on a quick turnaround as they take on the New England Patriots tonight on Monday Night Football with former University of Pittsburgh quarterback Tyler Palko set to make his first career start in place of the injured Matt Cassel.
The Bengals will host the Cleveland Browns next Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium after losing yesterday to the Baltimore Ravens before coming to Pittsburgh the following week.
