Here's Sunday's NFL schedule. The key 1:00 game for Pittsburgh's sports fans is, of course, the Steelers against the Bills on CBS. The only other divisional game in that time slot is an irrelevant contest between the Panthers and Browns (FOX). The best 1:00 game is the Packers against the Falcons on FOX. The Jaguars / Giants contest (CBS) could have playoff implications for the Steelers - Jacksonville is currently tied with the Colts for the AFC South lead. The Titans, one game behind them, host the Texans at 1:00 as well (CBS).â†µ
In the 4:15 time slot, look out for the Bucs and Ravens (FOX), and the Chiefs / Seahawks matchup (CBS) could have playoff implications as well. The matchup between the Eagles and Bears (FOX) features two first-place teams.â†µ
Since the Patriots and Jets have already played (and won) their games, this weekend's slate features a limited number of games that should have much effect on the Steelers' playoff position, but an upset of the Ravens could potentially be big for Pittsburgh.
