Increasing virus-related issues for Ravens moves upcoming Dallas-Baltimore tilt to Monday, Dec. 7
Due to the recent COVID-19 outbreak within the Baltimore Ravens organization, the Ravens-Steelers game scheduled for primetime on Thanksgiving night has been moved once again. Now, the AFC North rivals will square off at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on NBC.
With that, the Dallas Cowboys’ upcoming game against Baltimore was also moved. The Cowboys-Ravens game was moved to Monday, Dec. 7, instead of this Thursday night. Dallas’ game at the Ravens will air at 4 p.m. on Fox.
The Ravens-Steelers game marks the third time in NFL history for a game to take place on a Tuesday. The most recent occurrence is not only the third-ever NFL Tuesday, but is already the second Tuesday game to be played this season due to complications surrounding the ongoing pandemic.
Due to the recent and tragic death of strength coach Markus Paul, Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy encouraged his team to “get away from football” and allowed players to take both Friday and Saturday off to be with their families.
Currently, the Cowboys sit last in the NFC East at 3-8 overall following a difficult 41-16 home loss to the Washington Football Team. A possible first-time matchup between Dallas and former receiver Dez Bryant is a strong possibility as Bryant was recently added to the Ravens’ active roster. For more sports coverage, click here.
