The Pittsburgh Steelers' Week 12 home game against the Baltimore Ravens is now being rescheduled for Tuesday night at 8 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on NBC. The game was initially slated to be played on Thursday night but was first rescheduled to Sunday afternoon after the Ravens had several members of the organization test positive for COVID-19.
In addition to the Ravers-Steelers game being moved to Tuesday, changes are coming to the Week 13 schedule. The Ravens were scheduled to host the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday, Dec. 3 for "Thursday Night Football" -- but that game has been moved to Monday, Dec. 7 with a 5 p.m. ET start time, the team said in a tweet. The game will be broadcast on Fox. The Steelers will still host the Washington Football team in Week 13 as scheduled -- Sunday, Dec. 6 at 1 p.m. ET.
The Ravens' positive cases include Lamar Jackson, Mark Ingram, J.K. Dobbins, Pernell McPhee, Trace McSorley, Matt Skura, Patrick Mekari and Calais Campbell. Several more Ravens players are expected to be included with Jackson on the team's reserve/COVID-19 list on Friday. The Ravens, who cannot re-enter their facility until Monday, have disciplined a staff member who may have broken COVID-19 protocols.
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin gave his team Friday off following the league's initial rescheduling of the game. This marks the second time the Steelers have had their schedule altered after the league moved their Week 8 bye to Week 4 following the Titans' COVID-19 outbreak. Pittsburgh originally had a mini-bye coming following this week's game against the Ravens before it was postponed to Sunday.
