The journey to the game of week 12 between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Baltimore Ravens was at least a long and winding road. Originally scheduled for Thanksgiving, then rescheduled for Sunday night, only to say the game would be played on Tuesday night, the Steelers fan base was furious over production.
As the NFL pulls out the game until Tuesday night, this is their last chance to ensure the game is played. If they fail to enter this game, they will face a decision to force a withdrawal or create week 18 and change the league’s plans after the season.
On Friday night, Ravens head coach John Harbow issued a statement saying the organization had a plan and they would be ready for the Steelers on Tuesday night.
The statement reads:
“We appreciate the efforts of the NFL and the Pittsburgh Steelers throughout this process, as we all work to create an environment that maintains the health and safety of all involved at the forefront of every decision.
“Our organization has a plan in place and we will be ready to play for the Steelers. We thank everyone for their adaptability and look forward to the challenge of facing a very good Heinz Field football team on Tuesday night. “
The Ravens had only one positive test, a practicing team, on Friday, so the hope is that their hearth is under control. The Steelers now have to worry about their own locker room after three players tested positive for the virus on Friday and were included in the COVID / Reserve list.
