Default Steelers/Chiefs to stay in prime time for Week 12

The NFL did not make any changes to the Week 12 schedule, leaving the Sunday night contest a matchup between Pittsburgh and Kansas City.
Week 12's slate includes three games on Thanksgiving. Detroit, as usual, will host the early game with a battle against NFC North rival Green Bay, while Dallas will welcome Miami in the second game of the holiday. San Francisco will visit Baltimore in the Turkey Day nightcap, as Jim Harbaugh takes his NFC West-leading 49ers across the country to match wits with his brother John and the Ravens.
Sunday's matchups feature an AFC East showdown of playoff contenders as the Bills visit the New York Jets, as well as an interconference tussle between Chicago and Oakland. New England also travels to Philadelphia in what was expected to be the highlight of the late afternoon wave of games.
The NFL is utilizing its "flexible scheduling" on Sundays from Weeks 10 through 15 and again in Week 17 to ensure quality matchups in all time slots, also giving teams a chance to play their way onto the prime time stage.

Kansas City? at night? Oh no. It was bad enough just going in to KC, that's a tough stadium to come out victorious. This could be a trap game.

i don't think any of these games are trap games to us, they're all must-wins if we want the division. we need to stay 1 game ahead of baltimore so more pressure is on our guys to win.

besides, kc just lost to tebow-mania, they are horrible.

they were even more horrible the last time we played them (and lost) in what was also a late season "must win" game.

i expect it to be much tougher than it needs to be.

Could go either way. We've struggled on SNF this year, and as mentioned, we didn't fair so well in our last "must win" there.

That said, we ARE coming off a bye with everyone healthy.

needless to say every game we win will be a close one no doubt. The only blowout could come against the Stains but who knows.

Don't see us finishing worse than 11-5. We are very capable of going 12-4 and should hope for the Rats to stumble 1 more time than we do. I'd be shocked if we went 13-3. We need all the AFC/division wins we can get plus head to heads so let's keep things going.

I was having flashbacks to the 2009 KC debacle yesterday when Miller bobbled the easy catch that turned into an INT - Steelers were methodically moving down the field in that 2009 game with the lead when Heath botched an easy catch across midfield that was deflected for a game changing INT

NFL Network lucked into a great Turkey Night games with 49ers-Ravens

IMO Stelers will need to go 13-3 to win the division

This team needs to develop a solid attitude so that there is no such thing as a "trap game".
We have the tools and the talent to walk into any stadium and say "You suck - we don't, so we're gonna have to kick your ass".


There's no reason on this earth why we can't do just that.

steelers may have caught a small break (no pun intended) now that matt cassel is out indefinitely with hand surgery, and we will be facing tyler palko.

i bet the nfl wishes it had held off this announcement keeping this game in prime time.
