The National Football League has rescheduled the Steelers and Titans tilt which was changed due to a COVID-19 outbreak in Tennessee.

According to the NFL:

The Pittsburgh Steelers at Tennessee Titans game originally scheduled for Week 4 on Sunday, October 4, has been rescheduled for Week 7 on Sunday, October 25 at 1:00 p.m. ET on CBS.

The Pittsburgh Steelers at Baltimore Ravens game will move from Week 7 (October 25) to Week 8 on Sunday, November 1 at 1:00 p.m. ET on CBS. ​

The Steelers and Titans now each have a Week 4 bye and the Ravens bye, originally set for Week 8, will now be in Week 7.

Following Tennessee’s Week 3 win against Minnesota, seven players and six team personnel tested positive for the coronavirus. That brings the Titans’ team total to 13 COVID-19 cases. It’s the first spread of the virus since the season kicked off in early September.

Canadian receiver Chase Claypool sees his bye week come earlier than expected, however, it could be a positive to provide extra time to continue learning the playbook and developing a rapport with Ben Roethlisberger.
