Will the Ravens-Cowboys game play as scheduled in Week 13?

Positive Covid-19 tests following Week 11 are now putting the Ravens Week 13 matchup with the Cowboys in question.

The NFL decided on Monday to move the Ravens-Steelers Week 12 game back one more day, pushing them to play on Wednesday night in hopes that the spread of Covid-19 will have stopped within Ravens team members in time, per Gerry Dulac. If that game is played on Wednesday, that puts the Ravens playing again on Monday against the Dallas Cowboys in Baltimore.

The new schedule would give the Ravens just four days between games and the same would be true for the Steelers, who, along with the Ravens, had their Week 13 game moved to Monday. At this point, if the Steelers-Ravens Week 12 game isn’t played on Wednesday, there’s not much hope it will be played in “Week 12,” as the turnaround time would be too short.

The NFL could still move their Week 13 Monday games up to Tuesday to give the Steelers and Ravens an extra day, but that may be forced to play on a short turnaround anyway. But no matter what happens, the Ravens will need to start getting multiple starters off the Covid list if they want to be as competitive as usual.
