1) Mike Florio reports that there is fear of a Ravens players strike -- which would create major issues with the Collective Bargaining Agreement -- if their game against the Steelers remains Tuesday night as now scheduled:

2) If you're keeping score at home, Ravens-Steelers has been moved from Thanksgiving primetime to Sunday afternoon to Tuesday night. Now there are murmurs that it could be moved AGAIN to Wednesday. Jeff Zrebiec, who covers the Ravens for The Athletic, reports:

Adam Schefter also reports the NFL is "pondering" moving the game again:
