As if the rescheduled NFL game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens because of positive COVID-19 tests couldn’t get crazier, let’s take a look at the game-time forecast.
Oh, who could have predicted snow for a Tuesday night game in late November?
In fact, no one but the flurries are forecast to fly as the teams are set to play.
One local meteorologist tweeted out this bit of sarcasm on Saturday morning.
Fans of both teams are upset about more than the weather.
They also are ticked about the game being rescheduled.
Moreover, Ravens fans are upset at the potential of more positive COVID-19 tests coming out Saturday…for the Steelers.
Baltimore Ravens, Pittsburgh Steelers Await Further Test Results
Meanwhile, Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh commented on the current situation on Friday.
“We appreciate the efforts of the NFL and Pittsburgh Steelers throughout this process, while we all work to create an environment that keeps the health and safety of everyone involved at the forefront of each decision,” the statement read.
“Our organization has a plan in place, and we will be prepared to play the Steelers,” according to the statement.
The note also gives thanks to everyone for their understanding. “We thank everyone for their adaptability and look forward to the challenge of facing a very good football team at Heinz Field on Tuesday night.”
What Are The Next Steps For These NFL Teams?
Obviously, all eyes are on Baltimore and Pittsburgh to see what are the next steps in this ongoing “when will we play?” saga.
Additionally, the National Football League has set up strict COVID-19 protocols for all 32 teams in the league.
Many believe the Ravens have not been able to stop their COVID-19 spread sufficiently. The Steelers are also monitoring their team’s operations after positive tests came back on Friday.
Coincidentally, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Saturday morning that more positive tests have arrived in Steelers Country.
