The Ravens-Steelers game originally scheduled for Thanksgiving night has been moved to Sunday at 1:15 p.m. The game will be nationally broadcasted on NBC.

The change comes after four Ravens players were placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 listfollowing Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans. Running backs Mark Ingram II and J.K. Dobbins, and defensive tackle Brandon Williams were placed on the list Monday. Outside linebacker Pernell McPhee was added Tuesday.

Players who test positive are required to sit out 10 days and produce negative tests. Players who are deemed close contacts are required to miss five days and also test negative.

The NFL had not rescheduled a game since Week 7. Both Ravens-Steelers games will have been moved from their originally-scheduled date this season.

Their Nov. 1 meeting in Week 7 was originally supposed to take place a week earlier on Oct. 25. That game was altered because of a ripple effect from a rescheduled Steelers-Tennessee Titans game from Week 4 when the Titans had multiple players test positive for COVID-19. As a result, the Steelers lost their bye week and the Ravens had a bye before playing Pittsburgh.

The Ravens are still scheduled to host the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday, Dec. 3 in Week 13, which will mean a short week following the Steelers game.
