It took forever to get the game played because of COVID-19 concerns, but once the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens finally clashed, everything turned out a-OK the next day.
That’s because all COVID tests taken Thursday morning came up negative, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
The Steelers held on for a 19-14 win to improve to 11-0. The Ravens are 6-5 and slowly but surely falling out of the playoff race one year after finishing 14-2.
Provided the tests keeping coming up negative, the Steelers will next face the Washington Football Team at home Monday, and the Ravens will host the Dallas Cowboys on Tuesday.
The Steelers looked rusty Wednesday, and no other NFL team has had as many games moved because of positive tests from opponents. This was their third. But as far as coach Mike Tomlin is concerned, that’s no excuse for how poorly they played.
“To be bluntly honest, I’m really disappointed in our performance tonight,” he told reporters. “We did enough to win tonight, that’s all.”
