This sucks.

For the first time in a long time, we will not be watching any NFL football this Thanksgiving evening, as the league has decided to postpone the game as a result of a Covid-19 outbreak among Ravens players and staff.

In a statement, the NFL said that, “The decision was made out of an abundance of caution to ensure the health and safety of players, coaches and game day personnel and in consultation with medical experts.”

In total, the Ravens have had five players and four staffers test positive this week. Running backs J.K. Dobbins and Mark Ingram had already been ruled out for the contest as a result of their positive tests.
