Steelers-Ravens will now play on Tuesday: report


The Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Baltimore Ravens game is being rescheduled for the second time this week.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the game between the AFC North rivals has now been pushed back to Tuesday due to the COVID-19 outbreak on the Ravens.

This also means Thursday night's Cowboys-Ravens game is also being rescheduled. An NFL spokesperson announced that this game has been pushed back to Monday, Dec. 7 at 5 p.m. ET. Thus far, the Steelers' Week 13 game against Washington on Sunday remains on schedule.

The Steelers also released a statement:

The Steelers and Ravens were originally scheduled to play on Thanksgiving night as the primetime game, but the league decided to push the game back to Sunday after multiple positive tests occurred among Ravens staff and players.

Steelers players voiced their frustration with this decision as it is now the second time their schedule has been impacted due to another team's COVID-19 outbreak.

On Thursday night, the Ravens reported more positive tests, which included quarterback Lamar Jackson. Head coach Jon Harbaugh had reportedly told his players they would not be reporting to the team's facility until Monday.

On Friday morning, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin decided to cancel the team's practice as the league monitored the developments within the Ravens organization -- a sign that Sunday's game was likely not going to happen.
