The NFL heads into Monday not quite ready to close out Week 13. Covid-19 delays in Week 12 have pushed back two games this week, giving us a Monday doubleheader and then a Tuesday evening game to close out the week.
The Monday doubleheader opens with the Pittsburgh Steelers hosting the Washington Football Team. The game kicks off at 5 p.m. ET and airs on FOX. It is only airing in certain TV markets, however, and for anybody not in those markets it is only other broadcasting on DirecTV’s Sunday Ticket.
If the game is not airing in your market and you don’t have Sunday Ticket, there is a stop-gap option you can consider if you really feel the need to watch what could be a rather ugly affair. DirecTV offers a streaming version with a one-week free trial. The upside to getting the free trial today is you would have access to it through next Sunday’s full slate of games. Unless you’re an out-of-market Steelers or Washington fan, I can’t think of any other reason to use the trial.
The Steelers are 6.5-point favorites on DraftKings Sportsbook and -286 on the moneyline. Washington is +245 on the moneyline and the point total is installed at 43.5. Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is questionable with a knee injury but expected to play. Running back James Conner is eligible to come off the Covid-19 list, but is expected to miss the game.
