Ravens-Steelers Thanksgiving Blockbuster Still On But in Jeopardy

On Monday, we mentioned a couple early positive COVID-19 tests for the Ravens, including Mark Ingram and JK Dobbins. Today, two players has swelled to five, and now we are in jeopardy of losing the Thanksgiving primetime NBC blockbuster:

This is by far the best of the three NFL games on Thanksgiving, and it would be a real bummer if it has to be postponed. Hopefully we are not heading in that direction, but if 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that we can never assume an event will go on until it’s actually started.

If this game is postponed, it will be interesting to see where they move it. The Ravens and Steelers have both already had their bye weeks, so if it can’t be played this week (Sunday? Monday? Tuesday?), it may not happen at all. The NFL has signaled it would add an extra playoff team in each conference and determine postseason contenders by winning percentage rather than add a Week 18 to the regular season schedule for overflow games.
