Ravens-Steelers Moving to Tuesday, Sets Off More NFL Dominos

Ravens-Steelers, originally scheduled for primetime on Thanksgiving and later moved to Sunday afternoon, is now going to be played on Tuesday, according to Adam Schefter.

This means that Ravens-Cowboys, originally scheduled for next Thursday, is going to have to be moved back at least to Sunday in the ongoing game of NFL dominos.

Not that I have a say in the matter, but I’d love for the NFL to give Monday afternoon football another whirl, which is what they did the last time Fox lost a Thursday night game with the Chiefs and Bills. Monday afternoon football was great.

Baltimore-Pittsburgh has been shuffled around because a number of Ravens, including JK Dobbins and Lamar Jackson, tested positive for COVID-19. While these players will still presumably miss Tuesday’s game, the extra time for testing and contact tracing should allow the Ravens to field a team — even if they have to call up a number of players from the practice squad.

Robert Griffin III is the likely starting quarterback for the Ravens. Trace McSorley, the former Penn State QB and current Ravens third-stringer, was placed on the COVID-19/Reserve list earlier this week.

Update: The NFL has announced that Ravens-Cowboys would indeed move from Thursday night to Monday afternoon if Ravens-Steelers takes place as now scheduled on Tuesday:

    • No. Seth I don’t agree with any forfeiture. The Steelers have had the most difficult schedule because of covid. They lost their bye week and now when they could have had 10 days off they are preparing for a game on Tuesday

  1. The Steelers aren’t getting any respect and aren’t getting any time off. Hopefully Brady beats the Chiefs this week. He has been filling up the news. He is more important than any other team going through struggles. All eyes on Brady and whether he wins or loses. Does he shake Mahomes’ hand if he wins /loses? These are the important questions of the day

  2. Absolutely my Outkick friend. I have been on quarantine because of contact tracing so I have been reading articles and got my panties all bunched. But despite the love/hate between the afc north. There is much respect! I am sad that Lamar is not going to be able to play if the game still is played on Tuesday.
