The Cowboys' game slated for Thursday against the Ravens has been postponed as part of a scheduling domino effect triggered by more than 20 positive COVID-19 tests in the Baltimore organization -- an outbreak that reportedly includes quarterback Lamar Jackson.

Baltimore's Week 12 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, initially scheduled for Thanksgiving night, was postponed a third time Monday after at least one member of the Ravens tested positive in the team's latest round of tests, according to ESPN.

The Thanksgiving night game was first postponed to Sunday afternoon, before Jackson was among four more Ravens to test positive Thursday, according to ESPN and the Baltimore Sun. The NFL decided to push the game to Tuesday night.

What is now a Wednesday afternoon game will air at 2:40 p.m. on NBC 5.

The Cowboys were scheduled to play Baltimore Thursday, Dec. 3 as part of the league's Week 13 slate, but the game has been moved to Tuesday, Dec. 8 at 7:05 p.m.

"These decisions were made out of an abundance of caution to ensure the health and safety of players, coaches and game day personnel and in consultation with medical experts," the NFL said in a written statement.

The Steelers' Week 13 game against Washington has been moved from Sunday, Dec. 6 to Monday, Dec. 7 at 4 p.m.

A handful of Pittsburgh players tested positive for the coronavirus after the Steelers' win at Dallas on Nov. 8, but the cluster of cases did not impact the team's schedule.

The Ravens and Steelers have both already had their bye week, as have the Cowboys.

With Jackson among the Ravens reportedly testing positive for COVID-19, former Baylor University quarterback Robert Griffin II is in line to start for Baltimore Wednesday afternoon.
