Pray We Don’t Lose the Ravens-Steelers Thanksgiving Blockbuster [UPDATE]

If you’re a veteran sports fan, you know holidays and sports can be tricky. You get blended with some family members who don’t think it’s your inalienable right to watch sports every minute they are on TV. What you can do, though, is strategize and plant your flag around essential times. You may have to sacrifice the Lions game for the greater good.

The benchmark game on Thanksgiving this year is Ravens-Steelers. This might be the most heated rivalry in the NFL this past decade, and you’ve got an undefeated Pittsburgh team seeking to continue the Ravens’ recent struggles. The game is slated for nighttime, when you’re stuffed to the gills and perhaps a bit tipsy. It promises to be the perfect time to unwind.

With that in mind, please give thoughts and prayers that the apparent positive COVID-19 tests with the Ravens do not jeopardize this game:

Update: Here are the details on the positive tests, so far:
