Steelers-Ravens Thanksgiving game postponed over COVID outbreak

The turkey day football marathon is down to just two games.

The NFL announced Wednesday that the Steelers-Ravens game, originally scheduled to be played Thursday night, will be moved to Sunday. The league made the move “out of an abundance of caution” after a handful of Ravens players and staff members tested positive for COVID-19.

Baltimore running backs Mark Ingram and J.K. Dobbins both tested positive for the virus earlier in the week, putting the game in jeopardy. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported that the list grew to seven players, with Matt Skura, Pat Makari and Calais Campbell also testing positive, among others.

The Thanksgiving slate will begin with the Houston Texans traveling to Detroit to face the Lions, and will end with a matchup between the Dallas Cowboys and the Washington Football Team.

Those four teams have a combined 13-27 record.
