The Pittsburgh Steelers’ loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 16 means they not only need to beat the Cincinnati Bengals at Heinz Field in Week 17, but they need help. That help will need to come from an unlikely place — Cleveland.

The most likely scenario for the Steelers to make the playoffs is for the Steelers to win, and the Baltimore Ravens to lose to the Cleveland Browns in Baltimore next Sunday. Talk about important divisional games. After all, this is why the NFL schedules all divisional games in Week 17.

Nonetheless, while the Steelers will be needing to scoreboard watch, they will be doing so later in the day as both their game vs. Cincinnati, and the Ravens game vs. the Browns, has been moved from the originally scheduled 1 p.m. ET game time, to 4:25 p.m. ET.

So, make sure you change your schedules, and be sure to stay tuned to BTSC for the latest news and notes about the Steelers as they prepare for the Bengals, and some help, next Sunday.
