Thanksgiving Day's most anticipated NFL game between the Baltimore Ravens and undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers has been moved to Sunday at 1 pm ET following reports that seven Baltimore players have tested positive for Covid-19. 

Running backs Mark Ingram and J.K. Dobbins were revealed to have tested positive on Monday.

Quarterback Trace McSorley, center Matt Skura, guard Patrick Mekari, defensive end Calais Campbell and outside linebacker Pernell McPhee tested positive for COVID-19 over the past three days, a source told ESPN's Dan Graziano.

None of those players will be eligible to play Sunday.

The line on this game moved from Pittsburgh -3 to -5.5 but was back down to -4 by Wednesday afternoon. This line was expected to be fluid ahead of Sunday's kickoff.
