Steelers-Ravens kickoff time won't change

The Steelers Week 14 game against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, Dec. 10 will remain on NBC's Sunday Night Football with kickoff at 8:30 p.m.

It will be the team's fourth straight primetime game, and their fifth primetime game out of the last six games.

The Steelers-Patriots game on Sunday, Dec. 17 (Week 15) was previously protected by CBS and will remain at 4:25 p.m. The Steelers play the Houston Texans on Monday, Dec. 25 at 4:30 p.m. and that game is not eligible to be flexed. No games can be flexed during Week 16, which is when that game is scheduled.

The Steelers-Browns game on Sunday, Dec. 31 at 1 p.m. is still eligible to be flexed.

"Flexible scheduling" will be used in Weeks 10-15 and 17. Additionally, in Weeks 5-9, flexible scheduling may be used in no more than two weeks. In Weeks 5-15, the schedule lists the games tentatively set for Sunday Night Football on NBC. Only Sunday afternoon games are eligible to be moved to Sunday night, in which case the tentatively scheduled Sunday night game would be moved to an afternoon start time.

Flexible scheduling will not be applied to games airing on Thursday, Saturday or Monday nights. A flexible scheduling move would be announced at least 12 days before the game.
