The Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers are set to play this Wednesday after postponing three games. The postponements have happened as a result of Baltimore failing to get their covid-19 cases under control. The rivalry game will take place tomorrow at 3:40 pm.

The big-time rivalry game was originally set for Thanksgiving day; however, the amount of covid outbreaks in Baltimore made it unsafe for both teams to play.
This will be the first time in NFL history that fans will be able to watch a game every single day of the week. The odds of this rivalry being postponed again is, however, still a possibility.
Ravens struggle to contain covid
American sportswriter Adam Shefter says there are still players who are apprehensive about flying on a plane to Pittsburgh with individuals who have just been taken off the cold-19 reserve list.
The Baltimore Ravens are having a hard time containing their covid-19 outbreaks. With possibly the worst outbreak in the NFL so far this season, the possibility of the AFC North rivalry being moved again is a likeliness that fans should prepare for.
The Ravens have more than 20 players checked on their covid 19 list, including quarterback Lamar Jackson.
The Ravens have around 38 players eligible to play in tomorrow’s game against the Undefeated (10-0) Steelers.
Robert Griffin III will play at quarterback. This will be his first start of the season. Griffin III should not be overlooked, especially after his last season’s performance against the Steelers where he carried Baltimore to a 28-10 win.
The Ravens will be looking to hand the Pittsburgh Steelers their first loss of the season, but the win will not be that easy as the Steelers hope not to repeat last year’s defeat.
