The Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens matchup that was rescheduled for Wednesday was bumped up to the afternoon because there were major priorities happening in primetime.

The Steelers and Ravens will play the final Week 12 game at 3:40 p.m. ET if everything goes according to plan. ESPN reported that the game couldn’t have been played in primetime because NBC is airing the Rockefeller Christmas Tree Lighting in New York City at night.

RAVENS-STEELERS POSTPONED TO WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON

“These decisions were made out of an abundance of caution to ensure the health and safety of players, coaches and game day personnel and in consultation with medical experts,” the league said in a statement Monday.

The Steelers’ Week 13 game against the Washington Football Team was moved to Dec. 7 and the Ravens’ Week 13 game against the Dallas Cowboys was moved from this coming Thursday to Dec. 8.

Baltimore said in a statement that the team held a walkthrough at their facility. They did not enter the locker room or the training room. The team will travel to Pittsburgh on Tuesday.

The Ravens had two more members of their team test positive for COVID-19 on Saturday, including Pro Bowl tight end and Type 1 diabetic Mark Andrews, ESPN reported on Sunday. That brought the team’s total to at least 11 players and 10 staff members who have recently contracted the virus. Twenty players total have been added to the reserve/COVID list in recent days.
