PITTSBURGH, PA - The Baltimore Ravens’ struggle to contain an extended outbreak of the coronavirus forced their rescheduled game Tuesday night against the unbeaten Pittsburgh Steelers to be moved back to Wednesday afternoon. It's the third fix to a matchup originally slated to be played Thanksgiving night.
The NFL announced the most recent switch Monday after the Ravens placed starters Matthew Judon, Willie Snead and Mark Andrews on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Although Baltimore also had four players return from that list the team will still be severely short-handed when this game is finally played.
The game is currently scheduled to kick off at 3:40 p.m. from Heinz Field in Pittsburgh. It will be televised locally on WKTV-NBC. The afternoon kickoff is due to NBC's commitment to televise the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting Wednesday beginning at 7:00 p.m.
Due to these programming changes, Wednesday's editions of NewsChannel 2 Live at Five and NewsChannel 2 at 6:00 will air on CBS Utica and WKTV.com. Wednesday's episode of Jeopardy will air on Thursday at 7:30 p.m., and the rest of the week's episodes will shift by one day.
