The saying has always been that the third time is the charm, well, not in this case. After being delayed for the 3rd-time, fans are now wondering if the Steelers and Ravens will play.


The Baltimore Ravens have had numerous players placed on Reserve/COVID-19 Reserve, including players who have been to the pro bowl, and things don't seem to be slowing down.


After following all of the protocols and abiding by every rule, the Steelers have now been thrown into a tough situation. If the Steelers and Ravens do end up playing their game tomorrow, that will only give the Steelers 3 days to rest until their next game. Imagine being back in school, you're sitting in class doing your work as a good kid. Then, out of nowhere, the kid next to you throws a pencil at your teacher and the teacher blames you. That's what it is like to be the Steelers this week.


Meanwhile, Baltimore is going to have to rely on backup QB and former Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin lll. RG3's last start came in week 17 of the 2019 season vs none other than the Steelers. RG3 put up 0 TD's, 1 INT, and got sacked 3 times while completing 11 passes on 21 attempts. Personally, I'm not feeling it. I think the Steelers will become 11-0 tomorrow with ease, assuming we get the game tomorrow and not the year 2050. It will be interesting to see.


Steelers and Ravens will allegedly play tomorrow, Wednesday, Dec. 2nd, at 3:40 pm.
