Nearly a week after it was originally scheduled, the Ravens and Steelers will play their Week 12 game later today … allegedly.

Ravens and Steelers: After three postponements and more than 20 COVID-19 cases between the two rosters, who knows if we’ll actually make it to kickoff this afternoon.

Ravens and Steelers: Baltimore did travel to Pittsburgh last night despite having two more positive COVID-19 cases yesterday.

 

Nearly a week after it was originally scheduled, the Ravens and Steelers will play their Week 12 game later today … allegedly. After three postponements and more than 20 COVID-19 cases between the two rosters, who knows if we’ll actually make it to kickoff this afternoon. Baltimore did travel to Pittsburgh last night despite having two more positive COVID-19 cases yesterday.
If the game is indeed played, it could be a historic mark for the NFL.
  • Ravens and Steelers
  • It will be the first time the NFL has had at least one game played on all seven days of the week over the course of one season
  • Thursday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday games are common in a normal NFL season, but the NFL has already seen COVID-19 force one Tuesday game (Titans-Bills in Week 5) with another scheduled for next week (Ravens-Cowboys)
  • The NFL has only played one Wednesday game since 1950 and it came via the 2012 regular season opener between the Giants and Cowboys (the game was originally scheduled for a Thursday, but was moved so that it didn’t conflict with President Obama’s speech at the Democratic National Convention)
  • As part of the league’s planned schedule, the Vikings and Saints are set to play a Friday game on Christmas Day later this month.
  • Bet this Ravens and Steelers game here!
If today’s game goes on as planned, it’ll check off the rare Wednesday box. After that, all that needs to happen is the Christmas Day game to complete the sweep. At this rate, though, there’s certainly no guarantee of that happening.
Experiencing history can be a sort of neat feather in the cap, but it’s safe to say we’ve  already experienced a few too many “historic” moments this year. And I also think it’s safe to say that the NFL would have preferred to avoid this sort of unexpected history.
