NFL News – The Week 12 matchup between the Baltimore Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers has once again been rescheduled. This time, the game will move from Sunday afternoon to Tuesday night at 8:00 pm ET.
Conflict of Schedule
Several more Ravens players tested positive for COVID-19 and will join Lamar Jackson on the COVID List. This latest conflict of the NFL schedule means the Baltimore-Dallas Thursday Night Game will move to Monday at 5:25 ET. The Steelers, meanwhile, host the Washington Football Team for Week 13 on Sunday December 6 as scheduled.
Harbaugh and Tom Voice Out and More
The issue has yet to be resolved as the NFL once again moved the game to the one like the Buffalo Bills-Tennessee Titans game back in October. Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh released a statement on the matter on Friday.
“We appreciate the efforts of the NFL and Pittsburgh Steelers throughout this process, while we all work to create an environment that keeps the health and safety of everyone involved at the forefront of each decision,” the statement read. “Our organization has a plan in place, and we will be prepared to play the Steelers. We thank everyone for their adaptability and look forward to the challenge of facing a very good football team at Heinz Field on Tuesday night.”
Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin initially gave his team a two-day layoff following the NFL’s rescheduling of the game. Now that the game has been moved to another two more days, this is the second time Pittsburgh’s schedule had been altered. They had one earlier when their Week 4 matchup was turned into a bye week. The Titans’ COVID-19 issues ensured that. This meant that their Week 8 became a Sunday game versus Baltimore.
Tomlin, despite all that, remains laser sharp in guiding his team to victory once they and the Ravens hit the field on Tuesday. It will be interesting to see what sort of game plan Tomlin has in store for them. The Ravens, undermanned and all, look to rise to the occasion without their MVP onboard.
