BALTIMORE—First place in the AFC North may be on the line when the Pittsburgh Steelers visit the Baltimore Ravens next month, and the NFL is rewarding the matchup with a later start time.
The Dec. 14 game at M&T Bank Stadium has been moved to 4:15 p.m. It was originally scheduled for 1 p.m.
The Steelers beat the Ravens 23-20 in overtime in Week 4. Pittsburgh leads the AFC North with an 8-3 record, and Baltimore is one game back at 7-4.
The start time for the Ravens' Dec. 7 home game against the Washington Redskins was also changed. That game will be played at 8:15 p.m. and broadcast nationally on NBC.
Baltimore's final game of the regular season, Dec. 28 against Jacksonville, could also be shifted to the late afternoon or evening if it has playoff implications.
