2012 NFL Schedule Week 3: Steelers Head Across Country To Take On Raiders

Fresh from their first victory of the 2012 season over the New York Jets, the Pittsburgh Steelers will fly cross-country in Week 3 to take on the Oakland Raiders at O.co Coliseum on Sunday.

Expecting to be without both safety Troy Polamalu and linebacker James Harrison, the Steelers will have a showdown with the 0-2 Raiders, who lost 35-13 to the Miami Dolphins in Week 2.

Without Polamalu and Harrison, the Steelers were able to keep the Jets in check and have a bye week in Week 4.

Other key games from around the AFC North to keep an eye on:

Baltimore Ravens vs. New England Patriots, Sept. 23, 8:20 p.m.

The week's marquee matchup is also its Sunday night showdown as the pair of 1-1 teams square off in primetime.

Cincinnati Bengals vs. Washington Redskins, Sept. 23, 1 p.m.

Cincinnati's defense will be tested against Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III.

Cleveland Browns vs. Buffalo Bills, Sept. 23, 1 p.m.

The Browns are the AFC North division's only 0-2 squad, and will look to get their first win at home against the Bills to keep up with the rest of the division.
