Many fans of the Pittsburgh Steelers have been wondering if the schedule Week 16 game at M&T Bank Stadium vs. the Baltimore Ravens will be flexed out of the current Sunday Night Football time slot. The answer has arrived, and it depends on the outcome of the New York Giants and Miami Dolphins Monday Night Football game in Week 14.
If the Giants lose or tie tonight, the Pittsburgh Steelers at Baltimore Ravens will be Sunday Night Football game on Dec. 27.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) December 14, 2015
If the Giants beat Dolphins tonight (8:30 PM, ESPN), Giants at Vikings game on Dec. 27 will move to NBC Sunday Night Football at 8:30 PM ET.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) December 14, 2015
Per reports, if the Giants defeat the Dolphins, they will play the Minnesota Vikings on December 27th on Sunday Night Football and the Steelers game would be moved to a 1:00 p.m. kickoff. If the Giants lose, or tie, the Dolphins on Monday Night Football, the Steelers vs. Ravens game will remain a prime time game.
The Steelers and Ravens are typically a lock for two prime time games, but with the Ravens already securing a losing season with a 4-9 record, there isn't much luster to the game, except for the Steelers needing the victory to make their final push to the postseason.
This news now gave Pittsburgh Steelers fans everywhere a reason to watch Monday Night Football.
