— Due to some further delays, the NFL game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens will not take place this weekend. Instead, it will now be taking place on Tuesday as other teams enter Week 13.
Original plans following positive COVID-19
tests would postpone
the game to Sunday. The initial release would attribute the first postponement to positive COVID tests among the Ravens organization.
However, the NFL felt extending it to Tuesday was necessary. The press release would attribute the reasoning “out of an abundance of caution.”
The release states that the league was wanting to ensure the health and safety of players, coaches, and game-day personnel. Their decision would also come following consultation with medical experts.
Tuesday’s game at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh will take place at 8 p.m. Eastern. The national broadcast will be airing through NBC.
The Steelers/Ravens game was initially to take place on Thanksgiving.
The Steelers currently have a ten-game winning streak. The Ravens (6-4) are looking to break their two-game losing streak. The Ravens would lose against the New England Patriots and Tennessee Titans.
: The Steelers will be in gridiron action at home against the Washington Football Team. The Ravens will be hosting the Dallas Cowboys in Baltimore.
