The Steelers' 87th opener also happens to be NBC's main event on 'Sunday Night Football' and, as a result, our local NBC affiliate -- and our site's partner -- WPXI has the game. That means we'll partake in the festivities, as well.
Here's the day's schedule ...
... and here's the breakdown:
• Before the game, beginning at 6 p.m., Alby Oxenreiter and Arthur Moats will be the studio hosts of a special 'Black & Gold Zone,' with on-the-scene reporting from Chase Williams, Dale Lolley and me live at Gillette Stadium.
• After the game, Alby and Arthur will be along for another 'Black & Gold Zone,' with those of us at Gillette offering analysis and locker room interviews.
• After that, a live 'Subway Final Word' will have our Chris Carter on panel with Mark Madden and John Steigerwald, hosted by Alby.
If you're out of our market, check WPXI's website for the live stream.
