When is the last time the Steelers-Ravens was not the national game? I realize FOX has the double-header this week, but c'mon! I'm stuck with the Colts-Jags. Thank god for the internet.

Fortunately living in PA on weekends where we play the Ravens it's almost guaranteed to be on, but trust me I feel your pain. This is, IMO, the best rivalry in the league at this point. Everybody should get a chance to watch this game. It's never some super high scoring display of passing greatness, but it's sure fun to watch.

I'd really consider it, but it'd be a waste since I only want to watch the Steelers (and some exceptions). You pay all that money to see every game, I just want to see 1. :P

I bought it for just that reason. I want to be certain I get to see the Steelers every week--its expensive but for me to see the game live (without all the cutting out of signal online) is well worth it.

It sucks for me too living here in Chicago. But I look at it this way...let us keep flying under the radar and not become some dog and pony show for the media. Leave that role for Payton and Tom...Time to go to the sports bar!

Yup, here in NE Ohio they always show the Browns or Bengals before the Steelers. Which I don't understand at all, I'm twice as far away from Cincinatti as I am from Pittsburgh, but they'll still favor the Bungals most of the time. Been listening to it online, but I'd really like to actually watch it for a change!

Same. I had cancelled it before the season started - **** is getting way over priced, but two weeks of watching on the internet sucked. So once again, I succumbed to DirecTV's extortion.

I love how they advertise how Dish Network and AT&T don't have NFL SUnday Ticket. I argued with DTV about it.. it's not they they don't want to have it, it because they CAN'T. DTV knows if anyone else gets Sunday Ticket, they would lose 75% of its customers.

Jags Colts?! WTF? Man, I just assumed it was by far the game with the most interest. Here in LA, we get the national game a lot.

The internet's rough, the NFL has been fierce this year patrolling. At least there's the one radio station on the net.

Due to me being 16 and now being able to afford NFL sunday ticket right now, I usually have to watch the games online and I actually stubbled upon a site last year that works great. I don't know if I'm allowed to post it: but its ATDHE.NET, I watched Titans and Bucs games in HD.

Anyway, I get Steelers game in MD.

Yeah ATDHE is really good most of the time.

YES! Finally living in MD pays off. If the game wasn't on TV here I would have to write a very strongly worded letter :yesnod:

Ya'll are way better off than me. I get saddled with the Bills game every Sunday @ 1.00 on two and even sometimes three channels at the same time. The only Steelers action I've seen all season was the Atlanta overtime.

These games show how football should be played, they leave it all on the field.

NFL ticket is a Rippoff, nice to have but way overrated. Now if you could watch everygame whenever you want even if it is over now then that would be nice. You are paying alot of money to watch 2 games a sunday.

Must be nice to live around 3 horrible teams. People there must not go to the game so it gets blacked out so they get to watch a good game. Nice thinking
