When the owners of the National Football League practically gathered in October, it was shortly after a Covid-19 outbreak within the Tennessee Titans derailed the league’s schedule. They discussed what a principle would become for the thorny end of this season: The NFL’s long-standing obsession with competitive justice had to fall by the wayside.
That decision came home to spend a surreal week that began with the postponement of a marquee game on Thanksgiving Day. Continued on Sunday with a team playing without a quarterback; and ended with an unusual Wednesday game that featured another team amid a widespread outbreak.
« Health and medical decisions have and always will take precedence over competition considerations, » said Commissioner Roger Goodell on Wednesday.
His remarks came just two hours before the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers were due to start a game that had been postponed three times because the Ravens had been registering new positive tests for over a week. After the breakout, the Ravens played against the last undefeated team in the NFL without MVP quarterback Lamar Jackson, the top two running backs and a host of other starters.
The Ravens Steelers game was supposed to be played on Thanksgiving night until the events forced a shift to Sunday, then Tuesday, then Wednesday. It wasn’t even confirmed that the game wouldn’t resume until just after Wednesday noon, a few hours before kick-off.
