Steelers get maximum number of prime time games

PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh Steelers fans must stay up late to catch the end of nearly one-third of the team’s games this season.

With the Steelers coming off a 10-6 record and an AFC North championship in their first season under coach Mike Tomlin, they are scheduled for five prime-time games this season — two each on Sunday and Monday and one on Thursday.

That is the maximum any team can be scheduled to play, and none of the five will start earlier than 8:15 p.m.
