The Show Must Go On; Steelers and Titans Expected to Play

The Tennessee Titans, how the Steelers play in Week 4, are experiencing a Covid-19 outbreak amongst their team. Multiple players and coaches have already tested positive and the team has cleared out from their training facility.

There is a lot of discussion about what the NFL should do with this game. A move to Monday night is possible, both teams have a bye week in Week 8 of the season. There has also been talk of a forfeiture or cancellation. Despite rumors flying all day about the possible outcomes it looks, as of right now, that the NFL is planning on having the game played as scheduled. With a possible Monday Night switch as a back-up plan.

Two starters for the Titans have been placed on the Reserve Covid-19 list after testing positive:

According to sources the Titans also told their players to be ready to play on Sunday whether or not they are able to practice this week. That would mean no scout team, no on field game planning, no hitting, and no practice time to get a new long-snapper ready.

That would be a major advantage for the Steelers, but could also force the league’s hand into making a change with the game to not unfairly impact the Titans.

Both teams currently stand at 3-0. This is also an interconference game that could have an impact on playoff seeding down the line.
