This week, NBC’s Sunday Night Football will be in the Steel City for the AFC North blood rivalry game between the Baltimore Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers. NBC loves showing this game every year and 2012 is no exception. In the first opportunity to flex, NBC and the NFL chose to keep Ravens-Steelers in place and not opt for another game in primetime.
We have NBC’s preview for you below.
THE BALTIMORE RAVENS TRAVEL TO PITTSBURGH TO TAKE ON AFC NORTH RIVAL STEELERS ON “SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL”

NEW YORK – November 15, 2012 – The AFC North leading Baltimore Ravens (7-2) travel to Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers (6-3) on Sunday Night Football. Coverage begins with Football Night in America at 7 p.m. ET on NBC.
Calling Ravens-Steelers is six-time Emmy Award-winner Al Michaels (play-by-play), in his 27th season as the voice of the NFL’s premier primetime package; 13-time Emmy Award-winner Cris Collinsworth, who has won the Emmy for Outstanding Event Analyst in each of his three seasons in the Sunday Night Football booth; and sideline reporter Michele Tafoya, who, last year in her first season with SNF, won the inaugural Emmy Award for Outstanding Sports Reporter.
Football Night in America is hosted by 23-time Emmy Award-winner Bob Costas, who will report from Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, PA. Costas will be joined on site by Michaels, Collinsworth and Hines Ward, the former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver and Super Bowl MVP.
Dan Patrick co-hosts Football Night from NBC’s Studio 8G at 30 Rockefeller Plaza. Patrick is joined by Super Bowl-winning head coach Tony Dungy, two-time Super Bowl winner Rodney Harrison, Peter King of Sports Illustrated, and Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk on NBC Sports Network and NBCSports.com.
