The game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Tennessee Titans, which has been postponed since Sunday following the outbreak of positive corona virus tests within the Titans system, has been rescheduled for ET at 1pm on October 25th.
The Steelers at the Baltimore Ravens game will move to ET from October 25 to November 1 at 1 p.m. Week 8 was pie week for both Pittsburgh and Baltimore.
“You have to be flexible,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. “This is the year for it. You don’t have to worry about this. I believe the league has the best interest in the heart and understands that everyone should do what they have to do.”
The NFL announced the schedule changes on Friday after two more Titans players tested positive for the Covid-19, a source told ESPN Adam Schaefer. It tested a total of 13 players and teammates in favor of the Titans this week. An additional member of the organization, out-of-line players coach Shane Bowen, tested positive on Saturday.
Sources confirmed the NFL Network’s report that NFL and NFL Players’ Association officials are in Nashville to investigate the spread of the corona virus in the team.
On Friday, in a memo received by ESPN, the NFL announced that it would extend the daily test indefinitely, including pie weeks.
When asked if moving the Steelers game a week ago affected his team, Harbaugh echoed the words of Steelers coach Mike Tomlin earlier this week, “We don’t care.” “I appreciated that quote from Coach Tomlin, and it was great.”
The Titans have announced that tickets for the Steelers’ original date at the Titans game will be honored on Oct. 25.
The Minnesota Vikings, who lost 31-30 to the Titans on Sunday, did not have a positive result in the corona virus test. Their facility reopened Thursday, and they are scheduled to play Texans in Houston on Sunday.
