Steelers vs. Giants 2012: Game preview, kickoff time, TV schedule and more

Joe Sargent

The Steelers go for their third-straight win against the Giants on Sunday.

The Steelers visit the New York Giants on Sunday, as Pittsburgh tries to keep pace with the Baltimore Ravens in AFC North. The defending Super Bowl champions will provide a tough challenge, and the Steelers will have to overcome a hectic travel day.

Pittsburgh will fly into the New York-area on the day of the game, as they were unable to secure a hotel in the wake of the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy. This will provide a unique challenge for the Steelers, who typically travel on Saturday.

The running game will also make life hard for the Steelers against the Giants. Pittsburgh's top-two running backs, Rashard Mendenhall and Jonathan Dwyer will be out. Isaac Redman will get the start in their place, and he has struggled this season, gaining just 2.5 yards per carry.

The Giants have won four-straight games and are 6-2 on the season, and have won three of four at home.

Game time, TV schedule: 4:25 p.m. ET, CBS
