The NFL’s decision to postpone the Ravens-Steelers game on Thanksgiving isn’t sitting well with many members of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Following the league’s announcement to move the AFC North showdown from Thanksgiving evening to Sunday, members of the Steelers took to Twitter to call out the NFL for their decision, which was made after the Ravens had a COVID outbreak in their locker room:
This is the second time the Steelers have had their game postponed due to an opponent experiencing a coronavirus outbreak. Earlier in the year, Pittsburgh’s week 4 contest against the Titans had to be moved to week 7 after Tennessee had a Covid outbreak among their players and staff.
While we can understand the Steelers frustration, they have every right to be — it’s just the world we live in today, dealing with the coronavirus pandemic.
