PITTSBURGH, Pa. (WTAJ) — The Pittsburgh Steelers game against the Baltimore Ravens has been postponed for a third time, moving to Wednesday, Dec. 2 at 3:40 p.m., according to NFL insider Adam Schefter
The game was originally scheduled for Thanksgiving on Nov. 26 before being rescheduled to Nov. 29. Later on, it was rescheduled to Dec. 1 before being pushed back another day.
The rescheduling originally started after multiple players from the Baltimore Ravens tested positive for COVID-19. Key players on the COVID-19 list include Lamar Jackson, Mark Ingram II, J.K. Dobbins and Willie Snead IV.
