NFL moves Titans and Steelers game to Week 7 due to coronavirus postponement

·1-min read

The Tennessee Titans and Pittsburgh Steelers will play in Week 7. The NFL announced changes to its schedule Friday as a result of the Titans’ positive coronavirus tests.

As a result, the Titans and Steelers will treat Week 4 as their bye week. The two teams will play instead in Week 7.

The Steelers were previously set to play the Baltimore Ravens in Week 7, but that game will be moved to Week 8. The Ravens will now have their bye in Week 7. The team was initially slated to have a bye in Week 8.

Titans still dealing with positive coronavirus tests

At least 13 members of the Titans have tested positive for coronavirus since Tuesday. The NFL already postponed the team’s Week 4 game against the Steelers, but had not announced alternative plans for that contest until Friday.

Moving the game to Week 7 is a solid solution for now, but the NFL could run into more issues if the Titans continue to test positive for coronavirus. ESPN’s Adam Schefter noted that the Titans’ Week 5 game against the Buffalo Bills could be in jeopardy if the Titans register more positive coronavirus tests over the weekend.
