For those fans of the Pittsburgh Steelers who rely on prime time games to watch your favorite team in the comfort of your own home, some bad news was just made official by the NFL. As reported yesterday, if the New York Giants were victorious over the Miami Dolphins on Monday Night Football, the Steelers vs. Baltimore Ravens game scheduled for Sunday Night Football in Week 16 would be flexed out of the prime time slot and made a 1:00 p.m. EDT kickoff.

The Giants were able to beat the Dolphins Monday night, and the Steelers and Ravens game has officially been flexed to the reported 1:00 p.m. EDT time slot.

The NFL, and NBC, decided the Giants playing the Minnesota Vikings is a more intriguing matchup to have on the prime time stage in Week 16 than the surging Steelers playing the sub-par Ravens quarterbacked by Jimmy Clausen, Matt Schaub or now Ryan Mallett.

For those of you who would rather see a 1:00 p.m. EDT kickoff than the late nights associated with prime time games, consider this an early Christmas gift from the NFL.
