Steelers games this season will be on either CBS (9 games–televised in select markets), Fox (3 games–televised in select markets), NBC (2 games–nationally televised) or ESPN (2 games–nationally televised), while one of the Fox games (Nov. 14 vs Cleveland) will also be on Amazon Prime.

Steelers 2019 Season Preview
After an ugly 1-2-1 start to the 2018 season, the Steelers ripped off six straight wins between October 7 and November 18. It looked like they were going to coast to their third straight AFC North title, but instead they lost four of their last six games and watched as they were passed by the Baltimore Ravens for the division crown and the Indianapolis Colts for the second wild-card spot.
“When you don’t make playoffs, there has to be urgency,” defensive end Cam Heyward said.
And that urgency came in the form of several offseason moves.
First, the Steelers rid themselves of distractions. All-Pro running back Le’Veon Bell, who sat out the entire 2018 season while holding out for a new contract, wasn’t given the transition tag and ultimately signed with the New York Jets in free agency. Then, All-Pro wide receiver Antonio Brown, who had continued to drive a wedge between himself and the organization, was shipped to the Oakland Raiders.
Since the start of 2013, Bell is second among all running backs in total yards from scrimmage, while Brown is first in receiving yards. But by getting rid of them, the Steelers have created an environment with far fewer distractions off the field.
“I think there is a chill atmosphere,” guard David DeCastro said. “It’s a little different. But, at the end of day, none of that matters. We got to win football games. You can talk about atmosphere and blah blah blah, but, if we don’t win, people aren’t going to care.”
As far as filling the holes left by their former superstar playmakers, James Conner proved last year that the Steelers are just fine at running back, as he piled up 1,470 yards from scrimmage and 13 scores in just 13 games.
The wide receiver position is a bit more dicey. JuJu Smith-Schuster is clearly a star, but there are some unsure options behind him. New signing Donte Moncrief is coming off a 668-yard, three-touchdown campaign with the Jacksonville Jaguars, while James Washington was disappointing as a rookie last year. Getting big improvement from the latter will be important for Pittsburgh’s offense.
Defensively, the Steelers have made a handful of improvements. They signed cornerback Steven Nelson and linebacker Mark Barron in free agency, and they traded up to grab inside linebacker Devin Bush 10th overall in the draft.
All-in-all, the Steelers look to be set up for success in 2019, but it’ll be interesting to see if they can follow through after all the roster changes.
“Every year I’ve been here, the question we always have in the offseason when we prepare up to this point, you have so much talent, so many great players, this is the year you’re going to win the Super Bowl,” left tackle Alejandro Villanueva said. “For the first time, the question has been this offseason — you don’t have the players we all thought we were going to take to the Super Bowl, now what are you going to do?”
Then, of course, there’s the matter of their division. The Ravens have gotten better, while the quickly-improving Cleveland Browns made one of the biggest moves of the offseason by acquiring Odell Beckham Jr to go with their ultra-talented young core of Baker Mayfield, Nick Chubb and Myles Garrett.
The over/under win total for the Steelers is set at nine, while the Browns are also at nine and the Ravens are at 8.5. The AFC North is going to be one of the most exciting races of the season.
