Report: Ravens-Steelers game, originally set for Thanksgiving, rescheduled a 2nd time
The NFL Week 12 game between the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers appears to be on the move for the 2nd time.
Multiple positive COVID-19 tests have rendered several Ravens players out of the game, most notably quarterback Lamar Jackson while affecting a number of staff members within the Baltimore organization. To account for this, the NFL opted to move the game from its original Thanksgiving 8:20 pm ET slot to 1:15 pm ET on Sunday, angering several Steelers players.
Now, it appears the game may be on the move again. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Dianna Russini, the game will now be played on Tuesday night.
It is not known what time kick off will be, but it will most likely be at 7 pm ET or so. As far as what network it will be televised on, NBC, as the rightsholder of the annual Thanksgiving night game, was slated to carry the originally rescheduled one on Sunday as well, but it is not known if that will still be the case come Tuesday.
This would, of course, not be the first Tuesday evening NFL game of the season. On Oct. 13, the Tennessee Titans hosted the Buffalo Bills in a game that was moved from Sunday due to COVID-19 issues within the Titans organization. It was the league’s first Tuesday night game since 2010 and only the 2nd in 70 years.
