USA ma

The NFL announced Wednesday that the Thanksgiving night game of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens has been postponed. The game has been moved to Sunday and the tournament will announce the date on Wednesday later. The decision stemmed from the fact that Ravens had at least 10 players who had recently received a positive result for COVID-19. Those who achieved a positive result include back defenders Mark Ingram and JK Dobbins.

According to Mike Garafolo of the NFL Networkthe Ravens would probably have been extremely short in the offensive line if the game had been played on Thanksgiving Day. Centers Patrick Mekari and Matt Skura were in close contact with the positive players, so they would have been forced to sit out.

The Steelers were very affected by COVID-19 this season, but it was no longer under their control. Pittsburgh should have met the Tennessee Titans in Week 4, but due to the outbreak of the Titans, the game was postponed to Week 7. Now, weeks later, they’re changing their schedule again because of a team breakout. face to face.

Pittsburgh players were not happy with the league’s decision to postpone Thanksgiving. Star broad buyer JuJu Smith-Schuster and tight-lipped Eric Ebron shared their thoughts on the situation on Twitter.
