Atlanta Falcons vs. Pittsburgh Steelers: Start Time, TV Channel, Live Stream and More


When we last saw the Atlanta Falcons in action, they were in a furious battle with the Green Bay Packers in front of a national audience. This week, the dirty birds have a bit of a short turnaround after that Monday night road defeat, and Atlanta welcomes the Pittsburgh Steelers to the Georgia Dome for a more customary, 1:00 pm ET match-up. By now, you probably know that the Falcons remain atop the NFC South despite a mediocre 5-8 record for the season, but that does not diminish the “must win” nature of this particular contest.

While the line could certainly move before kick-off, the leading odds-makers (both in Vegas and off-shore) have the Falcons as approximately a 2-point underdog in this game, and that appears to be a bit of disrespect toward Atlanta given the venue of the game and the recent performance by Mike Smith’s team. In the same breath, Pittsburgh is considered the “better team” here (as covered in our full preview from earlier in the week), and the Falcons have an uphill battle to climb, especially if they are without either Julio Jones or William Moore in this game.

Stay tuned for post-game analysis, including a full recap shortly after the game, and feel free to sound off by using the comment section of this post as a game thread of sorts.
