The NFL has juggled the schedule to allow the Steelers and Titans to play this season after their game scheduled for Sunday had to be postponed.

The league announced today that the Steelers-Titans game that was postponed because of the Titans’ COVID-19 outbreak will now be played in Week Seven on Sunday, October 25. Week Seven had previously been the Titans’ bye week.

The Steelers had been scheduled to play the Ravens in Week Seven but will now play the Ravens in Week Eight. In the original schedule, Week Eight was both the Steelers’ and Ravens’ bye week. The Ravens’ bye is now Week Seven, and this week will be considered the Steelers’ and Titans’ bye.

Both Steelers-Titans and Steelers-Ravens are scheduled to take kick off at 1 p.m. ET and be televised on CBS.

  1. Screw the Ravens again because it’s Pittsburgh. Tennessee should forfeit and it goes as a loss or play with those who aren’t sick.

  2. you can only schedule with what you know. Will this work-maybe-maybe not.

    However with a pandemic happening they are doing the best they can.

    There will be more ‘unfair’ decisions made. Just the way it is.

  3. Steelers got jobbed. They prepared all week for a game Sunday, so they didn’t get the benefits of a known bye week – players would have been home relaxing most of the week.

  4. Very unfair to the Steelers. Obviously, the Titans screwed up and now the Steelers must play 13 games in a row. Something else should have been done.

  5. The league is pretty lucky this worked out this way, I don’t think the shuffling will work out so well if another team has an outbreak.

  6. Steelers fans and Ravens fans need to stop whining about this. We all knew this kind of things could happen to any team, so just tough it out and deal with it.
    I mean, get real. NFL teams play tough schedules all the time. Playing on Thursday and Monday nights (because of the short week after playing on Monday nights) are not easy, either, but teams have been doing that for years.
    One point no one is mentioning is that this virus can happen to anyone at any time and any place. It doesn’t mean that Titans players or club members went out of their way to get it. So let’s not rush to judgement about that until such time as the facts show otherwise.

    Nah, they got it right.

    This one was easier fix then the next time this happens. As teams start to have their natural byes this is going to be an issue.

    Their should’ve been at least one “blank” week added to the end of the season to make up these postponements which always seemed inevitable.

  8. This sets a very bad precedent. They should have simply played the game with the players that are available

  9. Steelers will be ready to play any time, any place, anywhere. They are ready to scrap every time / all thee time.

    Except, of course, if it were your favorite team which was missing a whole bunch of players.

    Players are not allowed to go home now.
    I want to know what happens next week. Aren’t the players supposed to quarantine for 14 days?

  13. What the league should’ve done is designated week 18 as a makeup week for games missed due to Covid19. Then start wildcard weekend a week later, and shorten the time between the championship game and the Superbowl to one week. This way they wouldn’t have to mess with the regular season schedule.

  14. It is unfortunate but I’m glad the Steelers don’t risk getting infected by the Titans this week. NFL should have left time open at the end of the year to make up these games.

  15. ?

    Since the Sunday Night game that week is shaping up to be crappy (Dallas at Philly) could Steelers at Baltimore be moved to the prime time slot?

  16. Didn’t the Ravens and Texans have a week 2 bye due to a hurricane one year? Steelers and Titans can get through it if they quit whining. Plus they can use it for inspiration right before their seasons end.

    That happens all the time due to injury. Look at SF right now. Should the league reschedule SF’s game this week because too many starters are injured ?

  18. It does suck for the Steelers, but this is probably not the last time it will happen to some team or other this year and it may even out before we’re done.
