Steelers-Ravens got bumped from primetime on Thanksgiving to Sunday afternoon on NBC due to COVID-19 issues on Baltimore. This is a harsh blow for NBC because they go from having an exclusive window to competing with games on CBS and Fox. Here is the Sunday schedule:

The silver lining for NBC is that the game starts fifteen minutes later than the games on Fox and CBS, and if it stays tight and cozy, it could also end later than them as well. This slight difference may help attract a larger audience late in the fourth quarter and while the other games are at halftime. However, the game will also go up against the beginning of Chiefs-Bucs, which will likely be one of the biggest viewership draws of the season.
Buckle up for what’s sure to be a wild witching hour on Sunday.
