The NFL has released the date and time of the Steelers Week 18 game against the Baltimore Ravens. The game will be played on Saturday, January 6 at 4:30 p.m. at M&T Bank Stadium and will air on ABC/ESPN, set to be the first game on the game slate to close out the regular season.

This will be the second time the two teams will face each other this season, the Steelers winning their first matchup back in Week 5 at Acrisure Stadium, 17-10.

The Steelers (9-7) are still in the playoff hunt after defeating the Seattle Seahawks, 30-23, at Luman Field on Sunday.

With the Ravens beating the Dolphins on Sunday, they are likelier to rest their starters for this matchup since they’ve already clinched the AFC’s overall number 1 seed.

If the Steelers win on Saturday, they will root for the Dolphins or Titans to win their games. If either team wins, Pittsburgh will make the playoffs as the seventh seed.

After a rough stretch in November and the beginning of December, the Steelers have won their last two games, giving themselves a fighting chance at a postseason appearance thanks to the play of third-string quarterback Mason Rudolph.
