Titans-Steelers game rescheduled for Week 7 amid COVID-19 outbreak

The Titans-Steelers game is officially rescheduled for Week 7 (October 25). The Pittsburgh Steelers at Tennessee Titans was originally scheduled for Week 4 but was postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak to the Titans locker room.

Following the additional positive test to the Titans locker room, the league postponed the game. Friday morning two additional players test positive for coronavirus, according to ESPN’s Senior NFL Insider Adam Schefter. There are a total of seven Titans’ player and six members of the organization with positive results.

The Steelers at Baltimore will move to Week 8 (November 1) at 1pm ET. The Steelers and Titans have a Week 4 bye and the Ravens has Week 7.

The Steelers will have to play 13 weeks straight. The Steelers coach Mike Tomlin is confident that this will not affect the team.

Next weekend, the Titans are scheduled to play the Buffalo Bills. This game could be in jeopardy if there are more positives. The league still emphasizes the importance of being safe during games.
