Steelers-Washington game moved to Monday in Week 13

The NFL has pushed the Week 12 game between the Ravens and Steelers back for a third time and the move to Wednesday will reportedly impact the Steelers in Week 13 as well.

They are set to play the Washington Football Team at home on Sunday, December 6 at 1 p.m. ET. Playing on Wednesday would leave little time to prepare for that game and the league is reportedly pushing the game back a day.

Albert Breer of SI.com reports that Pittsburgh will now host Washington on Monday night. Baltimore’s game against Dallas was pushed to that day after the Ravens-Steelers tilt was initially postponed to Tuesday and there is also a Bills-49ers game that night.

There’s been no word on what time the Steelers and Washington will play. The Ravens-Cowboys game is set for 5 p.m. ET with the Bills and 49ers slotted for the traditional 8:15 p.m. ET start.

That game will take place in Arizona because of Santa Clara County regulations barring contact sports, so all three games will serve as reminders of how teams have had to adjust to changing situations while playing a football season in a pandemic.

  1. Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t the time between a Wednesday game and a Sunday game the same as the time between a Sunday game and a Thursday game? Is the NFL admitting that four days is not enough time to prepare for a game?

  2. Thank you Commissioner Harbaugh! Can Goodell possibly bend over further for this guy? Obviously, Fangio has no clout with the Commish. Steelers moved again, will now play week 13 after 5 day rest while WTF has 11 day break.

    Both teams have 4 days to prep that play on Thursday. This would not be the case since steelers would 4 days and Washington a full week.

  4. Explain why this game is Monday and Dallas ravens is moved to Tuesday…. NFL doing everything they can to help Baltimore

  5. The NFL is doing everything it can to make sure Lamar Jackson can play in next week’s game. Meanwhile the Pats played the Chiefs without Cam and the Broncos played the Saints without any QB at all. What happens if Mahomes gets Covid, we put the season on pause until he’s cleared to play?

  6. And I was waiting for the NFL to announce that the Steelers-Ravens game had been moved to Saturday and it would be a double header with the second game being Steelers-Washington.

    Don’t give up hope, there’s still time for that to happen.

  8. I will be waiting for the Ravens, Steelers, Broncos to be fined & docked a pick or so as the Saints were.

    Correct

  10. Ridiculous! in addition to a heavy fine and a loss of all draft picks, the baltimore team should be forced to forfeit rather than screw up everyone else’s schedules.
