U NFL Thanksgiving Program it followed the mantra of saving the best until the last, but after 2020 it set in motion.
The Ravens and Steelers were set to play Thursday night to close out a three-game thank-you list. Instead, Baltimore had a COVID-19 fire on their team, and the NFL announced Wednesday afternoon he replayed the game until Sunday afternoon. Soon, the league chose to keep the first two Thanksgiving games at their scheduled initial times.
Every year since 2006, the NFL has had a third Thanksgiving game to serve as night owls. That won’t be the case in 2020. Once Cowboys-Washington ends around 7:30 pm ET, you’ll have to find something else to watch.
Below is everything you need to know about the altered NFL calendar for Week 12 and what other limited viewing options you have Thursday night.
Is there an NFL game tonight?
No, there isn’t an NFL game on Thanksgiving night in 2020. It was never going to be an official branded game “Thursday Night Football” because of the NFL’s list of Thanksgiving games, but the rescheduling means that there won’t be a nightcap to Thanksgiving at all.
The Steelers and Ravens were to play at 8:20 pm ET on Thanksgiving night on a broadcast with NBC’s usual “Sunday Night Football” crew. It’s shaped like a chance for Pittsburgh to try to go 11-0 on the season. Instead, a COVID-19 fire on the Ravens led to the postponement of that game.
The newly scheduled kickoff in Pittsburgh with Baltimore in town is 1:15 pm ET Sunday afternoon. The game will still receive a national broadcast treatment on NBC.
