The Baltimore Ravens-Pittsburgh Steelers game on Tuesday has been postponed for a third time due to COVID-19 concerns and is now set for Wednesday at 3:40 p.m. ET, the NFL announced.

The AFC North showdown was originally scheduled for Thanksgiving but was pushed to Sunday before being moved to Tuesday.

The Steelers' game against the Washington Football Team, which was scheduled for Sunday as part of the Week 13 slate, will now be postponed to Monday, Dec. 7, at 5 p.m. ET as a result. The San Francisco 49ers will also play the Buffalo Bills on Monday Night Football.

The league also postponed the Ravens' game against the Dallas Cowboys. The Week 13 matchup, which was initially set for Thursday night before being moved to Monday, has now been pushed to Tuesday, Dec. 8, at 8:05 p.m. ET.

Game Week Original date New date Time (ET)
Steelers-Ravens 12 Nov. 26 Dec. 2 3:40 p.m.
Steelers-Washington 13 Dec. 6 Dec. 7 5 p.m.
Ravens-Cowboys 13 Dec. 3 Dec. 8 8:05 p.m.

The postponements initially stemmed from a virus outbreak on the Ravens. The team placed 20 players on the reserve/COVID-19 list, including quarterback Lamar Jackson.

Running backs Mark Ingram and J.K. Dobbins, two of Baltimore's players on the reserve group, will now be eligible to play Wednesday, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

The Steelers faced their own COVID-19 concerns. Running back James Conner and special teams coach Danny Smith tested positive, and multiple team members were isolated after being deemed high-risk close contacts.

The Ravens brought players in for a walkthrough Monday night after the NFL reportedly canceled their morning practice.

Some Ravens players are still concerned about playing the delayed game, a source told Mark Maske of The Washington Post.

If the game takes place on Wednesday, it'll be just the sixth game in NFL history to be played on that day, according to Ben Volin of the Boston Globe. It last happened in the 2012 season opener between the New York Giants and Cowboys.
