Without a doubt, NFL fans — whether they support the Baltimore Ravens or Pittsburgh Steelers — are not pleased with the league’s decision in response to more Ravens testing positive for COVID-19.

On Friday, the National Football League announces it is rescheduling the Ravens-Steelers game to Tuesday.

This comes on the heels of the game, originally scheduled for Thanksgiving night, being postponed and moved to Sunday.

The reason? Ravens players and staff members have been popping positive COVID-19 tests all over the place.

Meanwhile, there are upset NFL fans and others celebrating Festivus early by airing their grievances on Twitter.

As a result, here are some of those comments.

Additionally, this one tweet probably expresses what a lot of people are truly thinking and feeling with this latest news.

NFL Fans See Ravens-Cowboys Game Getting Moved

Furthermore, this news also means Thursday’s scheduled game between the Ravens and Dallas Cowboys will now be played on Monday at 5 p.m. Eastern.

Meanwhile, the Cowboys, 3-8 this season, are coming off a 41-16 loss at home on Thanksgiving to the Washington Football Team.

According to an ESPN story, at least 12 Ravens players have positive tests for COVID-19. This includes reigning NFL MVP Lamar Jackson.

Another key point to make is that with Jackson quarantining for 10 days, according to ESPN the Ravens say Robert Griffin III will start against Pittsburgh.

In light of this situation, RGIII makes just his second start in the past four years.

Source Says Ravens Lockdown Team Facility

In addition, Ravens coach John Harbaugh told his players on Thursday that they are not allowed to return to the team facility, according to an ESPN source.

Be that as it may, Harbaugh reportedly told team members that no one would be able to return until Monday at the earliest due to safety concerns, the source said.

To summarize, Ravens-Steelers will now play on Tuesday and Ravens-Cowboys has been moved to the following Monday.

Of course, all of this is subject to change so stay tuned.
