We've been waiting all day for Sunday night.
For the Kansas City Chiefs and Pittsburgh Steelers, an important AFC win is at stake on Sunday Night Football. Here's how our NFL experts think the game will play out:
Connor Hughes: The Steelers suffered one of the more embarrassing defeats of last week when the Eagles demolished them. The Eagles are not that good, and the Steelers aren't that bad. It was a trap game that Pittsburgh sleep-walked into. They'll bounce back against the Chiefs. It helps when you have Le'Veon Bell returning, too. Steelers 31, Chiefs 23.
James Kratch: Pittsburgh bounces back with a big win at home after the debacle in Philly. But Kansas City is too strong to get blown out, even on the road. Steelers 24, Chiefs 21.
Dan Duggan: The Chiefs forced eight turnovers in a win over the Jets last week, while the Steelers managed just three points in a blowout loss to the Eagles. Both should prove to be aberrations. Pittsburgh's offense gets a boost from the return of running back Le'Veon Bell from suspension. Steelers 31, Chiefs 27.
Darryl Slater: Interesting matchup here, as the Steelers are coming off that 34-3 drubbing by the Eagles, while the Chiefs just beat up the Jets, 24-3. We think the Steelers' dud in Philadelphia was just an aberration, though. This is a good team that will rebound on a big stage Sunday. Steelers 21, Chiefs 20.
Joe Giglio: Keep a close eye on this one. There's a good chance that we see a rematch of this same game--in the same venue--in the postseason. This week, Pittsburgh brings back the best back in the NFL and will look to avenge an awful loss in Philadelphia last week. Kansas City does enough to keep it close, but the Steelers eek one out at home. Steelers 24, Chiefs 21.About Us More on NJ.com NJ.com Sections Contribute to NJ.com Newspaper stories and photos

Highlights of the 2015 Sunday Night Football schedule:
NBC TO BROADCAST 19 NFL GAMES IN 2015: As part of the agreement NBC signed with the NFL in December 2011, NBC, for the fourth straight season, will broadcast 19 regular-season games, including 17 regular-season Sunday Night Football games, NFL Kickoff 2015, and the annual Thanksgiving night game. NBC’s original Sunday Night Football agreement, which began in 2006, included 17 regular-season games. It was increased to 18 games in 2010.
SNF IS NO. 1 PRIMETIME PROGRAM ON TELEVISION: NBC’s Sunday Night Football averaged 21.3 million viewers in 2014, putting it on pace to rank as the No. 1 show for the entire primetime television season (September-May, based on Nielsen live plus same day data) for the fourth consecutive year. Sunday Night Football also is on pace to rank No. 1 among Adults 18-49 for the fifth consecutive full TV season (September-May, based on Nielsen live plus same day data).
** Thanksgiving Night Game
Following is a month-by-month look at the 2015 Sunday Night Football schedule:
Tom Brady and the New England Patriots raise the Super Bowl champions banner for the fourth time in 14 seasons prior to hosting Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers in NFL Kickoff 2015 on Thursday, September 10. It is the first of six matchups on the NBC schedule pitting Super Bowl winning QBs . Two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning and the New York Giants close out NFL Kickoff Sunday on September 13 visiting Tony Romo and the defending NFC East winner Dallas Cowboys. On September 20, Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks visit Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers in a rematch of the NFC Championship Game. SNF wraps up its opening month with the first-ever NBC Sunday night game in Detroit, as Matthew Stafford, Calvin Johnson and the Lions host Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos on September 27.
Quarterbacks Tony Romo and Drew Brees meet for the third consecutive season on Sunday Night Football as the Cowboys visit the New Orleans Saints on October 4. In Week 6 (Oct. 18), it’s a rematch of the AFC Championship Game as Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts visit Brady and the Patriots. On October 25, the Philadelphia Eagles make their ’15 SNF debut in Carolina against the Panthers and QB Cam Newton.
SNF kicks off the month with a quarterback matchup between Green Bay’s Rodgers and Denver’s Manning – who have won a combined 7 Associated Press NFL MVP awards – as the Packers visit the Broncos on Nov. 1. It is only the second Rodgers-Manning meeting (Packers beat Colts 34-14 on Oct. 19, 2008). A week later on Nov. 8, Philadelphia Eagles running back DeMarco Murray makes his return to Dallas, where he won the 2014 rushing title as a member of the Cowboys. Arizona, one of only two teams to win in Seattle in the last three seasons, visits the two-time defending NFC champion Seahawks on Nov. 15. Thanksgiving weekend features a pair of huge rivalries as the Green Bay Packers host the Chicago Bears on Thanksgiving night (Nov. 26) followed three nights later (Sunday, Nov. 29) by Brady-Manning XVII as the star quarterbacks meet for the 17 th time in their storied careers when the Patriots visit the Broncos.
Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers open the month on Sunday Night Football hosting Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts on Dec. 6. Roethlisberger passed for 522 yards and six touchdowns in the Steelers’ 51-34 win against the Colts last season. Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks Russell Wilson and Joe Flacco meet for the first time as the Seattle Seahawks visit the Baltimore Ravens on Dec. 13. SNF’s Dec. 20 matchup features a rematch of two classic Super Bowls (XVI and XXIII) as the Cincinnati Bengals visit the San Francisco 49ers at Levi’s Stadium, the site of the NFL’s 50 th Super Bowl in February. Week 16 brings the tough AFC North matchup as the Pittsburgh Steelers visit the Baltimore Ravens. Last year, on Sunday Night Football, Roethlisberger threw six touchdown passes to defeat the Ravens in November. Baltimore returned to Pittsburgh on NBC’s Wild Card Playoff in January and came away with a 30-17 win. The schedule does not list a Sunday night game in Week 17, but an afternoon game with playoff implications will be moved to that time slot.
FLEXIBLE SCHEDULING: Flexible scheduling will be used in Weeks 11-17. Additionally, in Weeks 5-10, flexible scheduling may be used in no more than two weeks. In Weeks 5-16, the schedule lists the games tentatively set for Sunday Night Football on NBC. Only Sunday afternoon games are eligible to be moved to Sunday night, in which case the tentatively scheduled Sunday night game would be moved to an afternoon start time. Flexible scheduling will not be applied to games airing on Thursday, Saturday or Monday nights.
A flexible scheduling move would be announced at least 12 days before the game. For Week 17, the Sunday night game will be announced no later than six days prior to January 3. The schedule does not list a Sunday night game in Week 17, but an afternoon game with playoff implications will be moved to that time slot. Flexible scheduling ensures quality matchups in all Sunday time slots in those weeks and gives “surprise” teams a chance to play their way into prime time.

AdvertisementsMore info on NBC Sunday Night Football results (2006–present)
Encyclopedia From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The following is a detailed list of results and scores from National Football League games aired on NBC under the game package NBC Sunday Night Football. The list includes both regular season and post-season game results, both produced by NBC Sports, from the 2006 NFL season to the present.
The NFL instated a new "flex-scheduling" policy in which the NFL could choose a game to be aired in primetime on NBC based on the team's current performance and record. Previously, ESPN broadcast Sunday night NFL games from 1987-2005.
Starting with the 2006 NFL season, NBC was awarded the rights to air Sunday night primetime American football games, as well as the rights to air two Wild Card playoff games from the first round of the NFL playoffs. In February 2009, NBC will conclude their third season of the game package by broadcasting Super Bowl XLIII and the 2009 Pro Bowl from Honolulu, Hawai'i. The game package also includes broadcast rights to the NFL Kickoff game and Pro Football Hall of Fame Game.Results by season
Listed below are games and their respective results played from 2006—present.
NBC Sunday Night Football wrapped up its inaugural season [in 2006] averaging 17.5 million viewers, 1.2 million viewers better than ABC Monday Night Football in 2005 and the best viewership number for the network primetime NFL package in six years (18.5 million on ABC in 2000). [ 1 ] The season featured pop singer Pink singing the anthem for SNF called "I've Been Waiting All Day For Sunday Night."
In the 2006 season, there was no game played on the first Sunday night which overlapped with the World Series (October 22 in the 2006 season), along with Christmas Eve night; NBC broadcast that week's game (Eagles at Cowboys) on Christmas afternoon instead. However, the broadcast of Football Night in America continued at its regular time on both occasions each Sunday, with a half-hour version of the program airing before the Christmas game and the two "Wild Card Saturday" games.
In 2007, there was no game broadcast on NBC for Sunday, October 28 due to Game 4 of the 2007 World Series, although Football Night in America aired at its usual time that week. Also, a tentative full-season schedule was unveiled, including games in the last seven weeks of the season. Those games could be replaced under flexible scheduling if the need arose. Three of the games in the last seven weeks were eventually replaced with more compelling matches. This resulted in the unprecedented situation--twice--of having a team playing consecutive Sunday nights. New England had consecutive Sunday nighters: the November 18 New England at Buffalo game was moved to prime time and was followed on November 25 by the already-scheduled Philadelphia at New England game. Likewise, the Washington Redskins played a scheduled game at the New York Giants on December 16, and their December 23 game in Minnesota was moved to prime time. The same rules under which CBS and FOX protect games for their own packages still apply.
NBC Sunday Night Football's 2008 schedule began on Thursday, September 4 with the defending-Super Bowl champion New York Giants defeating the Washington Redskins in the NFL Kickoff game. On Sunday, September 7, the Indianapolis Colts hosted the Chicago Bears in the first game at Lucas Oil Stadium. 2008 marked the third consecutive year that both the Colts and Giants would be featured in the NBC Sunday Night Football opening week games. As a result, the Manning brothers were used in commercial advertisements.
The 2008 schedule, released April 15, continued the current practice of a scheduled game possibly being moved in favor of a more compelling one during Weeks 11 through 16 (November 16 through December 21), but left the slot open on the final Sunday, December 28. The NFL Kickoff Game between the Washington Redskins and defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants that was played on September 4 started at 7:00 p.m. instead of the normal 8:30 p.m. time in order to avoid conflict with the nomination speech that John McCain gave at the Republican National Convention that night; the game ended at 10:01pm EDT, averting any conflict. As in previous years, one Sunday night (October 26) featured no game broadcast due to Game 4 of the World Series, although Football Night in America aired as usual that week.
The October 19 Seahawks-Buccaneers game featured Cris Collinsworth substituting for John Madden as the color commentator, the first time Madden had missed calling a game in 28 years. He had taken the week off because he would have had to make three straight cross country trips after calling games in Jacksonville and San Diego. (He travels by bus because of a fear of flying.) [ 2 ] The Patriots-Seahawks game on December 7 was dropped in favor of a Redskins-Ravens flex schedule game. The Chargers-Buccaneers game on December 21 was dropped in favor of a Panthers-Giants game to determine home-field advantage in the NFC playoffs. The Week 17 game was purposely not chosen when the schedule was initially released, and the Broncos-Chargers game was picked up for it to determine the winner of the AFC West division.
On wildcard weekend, the Atlanta Falcons and Arizona Cardinals both made their debuts on SNF in the 4:30 EDT game on January 3. The Chargers hosted the Colts in the primetime game later that evening.SNF statistics

The Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens will play each other on Sunday night in Week 9.
These two teams represent one of the most fierce rivalries in the National Football League. The Ravens and Steelers are both tied with the identical records, and the AFC North division has been a tough race this entire season. This game promises to be a hard hitting old school football game.
Let's see who has the edge.Baltimore Ravens (5-3)
The Baltimore Ravens are 5-3 after eight games of play with losses to the Indianapolis Colts and two losses to the Cincinnati Bengals. Getting swept against the Bengals isn't the kind of start the Ravens wanted, but they can rebound by sweeping the Steelers on Sunday night.
Wide receiver Steve Smith has proven to be one of the best additions of the offseason. The 35-year-old wide receiver has a team leading 41 receptions, 675 yards and four touchdowns. Torrey Smith is second on the team with just 308 yards through the air. Quarterback Joe Flacco is having a productive but inconsistent season with 14 touchdowns and seven interceptions so far.
Even without Ray Rice, this team is getting the job done on the ground. The Ravens rank No. 8 in team rushing thanks to Justin Forsett and his 571 yards. This Ravens team isn't the elite defensive squad that was once led by Ray Lewis, but they rank second in points against with just 16.4. Only the Detroit Lions are allowing are allowing fewer points per game.
Unfortunately for the Ravens, penalties have been an issue.Pittsburgh Steelers (5-3)
The Steelers appear to be finally hitting their groove. After alternating wins and losses every week until Week 7, the Steelers have won their last two games. Last week Ben Roethlisberger had one of the best games of his career with 522 passing yards, six touchdowns and zero interceptions. Roethlisberger has 16 touchdowns this season with a career best 105 passer rating.
Wide receiver Antonio Brown is having an incredible year with 852 yards and seven touchdowns so far. Despite being just 5-foot-10, Brown is playing like an MVP candidate this season. Remarkably, Brown has at least five catches and 80 yards in every single game this season. Not to mention, Brown even has 142 punt return yards this year.
Usually we see the Steelers have an elite defense, but the times have changed in Pittsburgh. This Pittsburgh team has the No. 3 ranked offense and the No. 16 ranked defense in the league. Many Steelers fans don't like the change of culture, but it is what it is. Running back Le'Veon Bell has been fantastic this season with 691 rushing yards and a 4.9 yards per carry average.
Head coach Mike Tomlin is known for his trickery and deep ball passing schemes.Schedule, Where to Watch
The Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens will play each other on Sunday, Nov. 2, at 8:30 p.m. EST at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The game will be shown on NBC. You can view a live game stream here.Prediction
Both teams are 5-3, and they know this game is crucial. The Steelers were absolutely embarrassed in their first meeting against the Ravens in Week 2, 26-6. This game will be in Pittsburgh, and the Steelers should be able to pick up a win thanks to Roethlisberger and Brown. The Ravens will put up a fight but fall short.Most Popular
