Pittsburgh Steelers Host Baltimore Ravens on Sunday Night Football
STAMFORD, Conn. – October 30, 2014 – Tomorrow’s “Together We Make Football” segment on TODAY, narrated by NBC Sports Group’s Josh Elliott, tells the story of young Pittsburgh Steelers fans Kylie and Kadee Roebuck. Elliott will report the segment live for TODAY between 8 and 9 a.m. ET.
This week’s “Together We Make Football” segment profiles Kylie and Kadee Roebuck, youth football players in their community’s league in Yough, Penn. 11-year-old Kylie plays tackle football on her team’s offensive and defensive line, and Kadee, 7 years old, plays flag football as an offensive guard. The sisters are avid Pittsburgh Steeler fans, and are proving each week they have what it takes to compete in the game.
Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers (5-3) look to build on last weekend’s record-setting offensive performance, when they host Joe Flacco and the AFC North rival Baltimore Ravens (5-3) this Sunday, Nov. 2, on NBC’s Sunday Night Football. Sunday night’s pre-game coverage begins with Football Night In America at 7 p.m. ET.
