COVID-19 Outbreak Pushes Steelers-Ravens to Next Tuesday
11/27/2020 10:27pm

The Baltimore Ravens bout with a COVID-19 outbreak has forced the NFL to postpone the teams trip to Pittsburgh for a second time.The league announced Friday the Ravens 6-4 against the unbeaten Steelers 10-0 will now take place on Tuesday night. The game was originally scheduled for Thanksgiving, then moved to Sunday afternoon after an initial wave of players on the Ravens tested positive for the novel coronavirus.Additional positive tests, a group that reportedly includes Baltimore quarterback Lamar Jackson, have forced the Ravens 6-4 to prepare virtually all week.The postponement forced the NFL to move Dallas visit to Baltimore next week from Thursday to Monday, Dec. 7. The unbeaten Steelers 10-0 will now have a short week to prepare for a visit from the Washington Football Team 4-7 on Dec. 6.The game if it happens will be the second Tuesday game played in the NFL this season. Tennessee played at Buffalo on Tuesday, Oct. 13 following the Titans bout with COVID-19 in early October forced a reshuffling of the schedule that included moving Pittsburghs visit to Tennessee from Oct. 4 to Oct. 25.

NBC 6 Weekend Football Preview: Plenty to Say Thanks For to End November
11/27/2020 1:37pm

With the Thanksgiving holiday now in the rearview mirror, its not to late for the three football teams still playing in South Florida to spread the message of what they are truly thankful for.For the Miami Dolphins, last weeks loss to the Denver Broncos doesnt take away from the fact that a five game winning streak set them up to make a serious run at the AFC East title entering the final month of the season.For the Miami Hurricanes, the second straight bye week that came after COVID concerns doesnt take away from the fact that for the first time since the 2017 season The U has a legit chance of making the ACC Championship Game.For the FIU Pantherswell, a winning record is out of the question and theyve had more games canceled this season than played. But, at least they have two more games scheduled to maybe get their first win of the seasonrightMeanwhile across the state, one of the other FBS powers hopes to build their resume for the College Football Playoff while the other FBS program is desperately hoping to actually play their game this week.Like weve done all season, we break it all down with NBC 6s not-so-scientific ranking system.Photo by Jim McIsaac/Getty ImagesMiami Dolphins at New York Jets Sundayif youre the Miami Dolphins, the first thing you have to do is forget what took place last week in Denver and the surprise loss to the Broncos because now, your goal is to avoid what could be the worst upset in team history with a loss to the winless Jets.Tua Tagovailoa will be back under center as the starting quarterback this week after getting pulled during what ended up being his first loss of the season. If youre New York, the goal for this game might be a lot simpler: score a point this time after getting shutout when the teams met in October.Other State GamesThe No. 6 ranked Florida Gators are at home after the holiday when they take on the Kentucky Wildcats who beat them during their last Gainesville meeting while the FSU Seminoles, fresh off their COVID cancellation of a game with Clemson, remain at home to take on Virginia.The FAU Owls are on the road for the first of three straight games, this week being against conference foe Middle Tennessee State.In the NFL, the Jacksonville Jaguars and their 1-9 record remain home to face the Cleveland Browns while the Tampa Bay Buccaneers fresh off their loss to the Los Angeles Rams on Monday night are also home when they face the defending Super Bowl champions, the Kansas City Chiefs.

Tokyo Olympic Organizers Plan to Host 18 Test Events
11/27/2020 10:46am

The postponed Tokyo Olympics are getting a kickstart.Local organizers on Friday announced a series of 18 test events set to begin in March and run into May.The Tokyo Olympics are set to open on July 23, 2021, after being postponed eight months ago because of the COVID-19 pandemic.The announcement in an online news conference came the same day that the Tokyo Metropolitan Government reported a one-day record of 570 new coronavirus infections in the capital.Although Japan has handled the pandemic better than most countries, cases have been surging recently with about 2,000 deaths attributed to COVID-19 in a country of 125 million.Officials said at least four of the test events will involve athletes from abroad, including tests in swimming, gymnastics, diving and volleyball.A track and field meet on May 9 at the new National Stadium is listed as test event. It is not clear if athletes from abroad will participate.Hidemasa Nakamura, the games delivery officer, said none of the test events will allow fans from abroad, although some events will permit an unspecified number of fans from Japan.No, we will not have spectators from abroad, Nakamura said.Several of the events will not even involve athletes, testing operations only as a way to cut back on spending.Japan has held sports events recently with fans. The final game of the Japan Series of professional baseball this week drew about 19,000 fans in a 38,000-seat stadium in Fukuoka. And a few thousand fans were allowed to attend an international gymnastics event earlier this month in Tokyo.As for the number of spectators, we have to take the guidelines of the Japanese government into consideration, said Yasuo Mori, who works with Nakamura on games delivery.The announcement by the Tokyo organizing committee is the latest in a campaign over the last several months to convince a global audience, sponsors and the Japanese public that the Olympics and Paralympics will take place despite the COVID-19 pandemic.Organizers are to announce a toolbox of preliminary countermeasures next month against COVID-19, although they are likely to be vague and subject to many changes going into next year.International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach, who was in Tokyo this month to talk up the games, acknowledged much of the planning hinges around the availability of vaccines and rapid testing.He said they were not a silver bullet but certainly would be a help along with social distancing, masks and near-quarantine conditions in the Athletes Village.Bach said athletes would not be required to take a vaccine. He said young Olympic athletes were not a priority ahead of millions of health care workers, the elderly and other vulnerable populations.Bach suggested the IOC would cover some of the cost of the vaccine, but he gave no details as the cost continues to climb because of the postponement.Tokyo says it is officially spending $12.6 billion to organize the Olympics, although a government audit last year said it was probably twice that much.Games officials say a full complement of 11,000 Olympic athletes and 4,400 Paralympic athletes will be allowed into Japan, accompanied by ten of thousands of officials, judges, VIPs, sponsors, media and broadcasters.More AP sports: https://apnews.com/apf-sports and https://twitter.com/APSports

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson Tests Positive for COVID-19, Reports Say
11/27/2020 6:52am

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has tested positive for COVID-19, according to multiple media outlets.Last years NFL MVP is the biggest star to become infected by the virus.The Baltimore Sun and ESPN, both citing unidentified sources, reported that Jackson was among four more Ravens players to test positive Thursday.Outside linebacker Pernell McPhee was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, joining running backs Mark Ingram and J.K. Dobbins and defensive tackle Brandon Williams. Because of the outbreak, the Ravens have been conducting team work remotely.The Ravens also said Wednesday they had disciplined a staff member, reportedly a strength coach, for not obeying league protocols.Baltimore 6-4 was supposed to play the unbeaten Pittsburgh Steelers 10-0 on Thursday night, but the game was postponed until Sunday. The latest round of positive tests could jeopardize the game being played this weekend.Backup quarterback Robert Griffin III would be the most likely candidate to start for Baltimore in place of Jackson. The No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 draft, Griffin has made only one start in the past four seasons.Praying for my brother Ljera8 and every player, staff member and their families dealing with COVID-19, Griffin tweeted Thursday. Ensuring the safety of the entire organization is important.

Dolphins Optimistic Tua Will Face Jets Despite Sore Thumb
11/26/2020 3:04pm

Tua Tagovailoas sore thumb was better Thursday, and Miami Dolphins coach Brian Flores expressed optimism his rookie quarterback will be able to play Sunday against the New York Jets.Tagovailoa hurt the thumb on his throwing hand in practice and was limited in practice for the second day in a row.He got banged up a little bit, Flores said. I dont think this is something were too worried about. Hes getting treatment, hes rehabbing. Well see how this goes. Its sore, but hes a tough kid. He has played through some things before.Tagovailoa was sacked six times before being pulled in the fourth quarterof the Dolphins loss last weekend at Denver, but he remains the No. 1 quarterback ahead of veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick. Offensive lineman Jesse Davis was activated off the reserve-COVID-19 list. Davis, who has started the past 52 games, went on the list Monday.
