NEW YORK – The Tennessee Titans and Pittsburgh Steelers game will now officially be postponed from Week 4 to a later date after two more Titans players and staff are tested positive for the coronavirus.

The NFL has officially announced its position to push the game back. No official date has been made for when the game will occur.

The total number is now five Titans players and six personnel who have tested positive. The Titans facilities will remain closed during this time.

No Titans Vs. Steelers Week 4

NFL sports bettors will not be wagering on the Steelers Vs. Titans game in Week 4 as the league was forced to push the game back indefinitely.

When news first broke of the positive test results, both the Titians and the Minnesota Vikings, whom the Titans played last, were forced to shut down their facilities.

The NFL has initially hoped to postpone the team’s games until later in the week, but the additional positive test results have forced the league to postpone the games for even longer. The NFL initially wanted to play the game on either Monday or Tuesday.

“The decision to postpone the game was made to ensure the health and safety of players, coaches, and game day personnel,” said the NFL in an official statement. “The Titans facility will remain closed and the team will continue to have no in-person activities until further notice.”

The Minnesota Vikings sill plan to return to their facilities on Thursday in anticipation of their matchup with the Houston Texans.

The NFL plans to continue to monitor the situation with the Titans and are hopeful that Week 5 can continue as scheduled.

The postponement is an example of how the legal sports betting market continues to feel the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic even into football season.
