In news that probably won’t surprise you, the Tennessee Titans vs. Pittsburgh Steelers game has been postponed to later this season following more positive tests in the Titans camp.
According to the NFL, one Titans player and one personnel member tested positive for COVID-19 this morning, adding to the four players and five personnel members that tested positive earlier this week. The NFL had hoped to play the game either Monday or Tuesday, but now, says the game will be played later this season.
“The decision to postpone the game was made to ensure the health and safety of players, coaches, and game day personnel,” the NFL’s statement says. “The Titans facility will remain closed and the team will continue to have no in-person activities until further notice.”
The NFL says an announcement on the new game date will be made shortly. As CBS Sports’ RJ White notes, Week 7 is the smart bet.
If Steelers-Titans has to be postponed, there's a relatively easy fix. Titans have a Week 7 bye, but Steelers bye isn't until Week 8. However, Steelers play Ravens in Week 7, and Baltimore also has a Week 8 bye. So move Steelers-Titans to Week 7 and Steelers-Ravens to Week 8.
