[UPDATE: The Titans-Steelers game will not be played in Week 4.]

The Tennessee Titans (3-0) were slated to host the Pittsburgh Steelers (3-0) this Sunday, but the game has been postponed due to COVID-19. When that game actually occurs, however, is yet to be determined, as the Titans are dealing with a COVID-19 outbreak within their organization

While this is the first NFL game impacted by COVID-19, it likely won’t be the last.

“If the NFL does not have to ultimately adjust their schedule, they will not,” JR SportBrief said on CBS Sports Radio. “The NFL will only adjust the schedule if they absolutely have to. It doesn’t matter if it’s not fair or if a team is at a disadvantage. The point of this season is to get through the season. The point of this season is to go week-to-week. The point of this season is to get to the damn Super Bowl and get to the money. If that means ultimately a team is at a disadvantage, too bad. If it means a team is going to miss a game ultimately that can’t be rescheduled, too bad. If it means that you ultimately have to lose a game, flat, period, too bad.”
