PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — The Pittsburgh Steelers will play in prime time five times in 2012, including a Week 1 game at Denver against Peyton Manning and the Broncos.

The opening contest kicks off at 8:20 p.m. on NBC Sept. 9. It will feature the debut of Manning in Denver, and will also be a rematch of last year’s first round playoff game, which the Broncos won, 29-23, on an 80-yard touchdown pass by Tim Tebow.

Other primetime games include Oct. 11 (Thursday) at Tennessee, Oct. 21 (Sunday) at Cincinnati, Nov. 12 (Monday) at home against Kansas City and Nov. 18 (Sunday) at home against Baltimore.

Much different from last year, Pittsburgh doesn’t play Baltimore until Week 11. Two weeks later they play again in Week 13.

In 2011, Pittsburgh and Baltimore played in Week 1 and Week 8.

Five of the Steelers’ final seven games are against AFC North opponents.
