    Here's some good news!

    The Baltimore Ravens are set for a tough game this week as they visit the currently undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers. This game is an opportunity for Pittsburgh to really stake their claim to the AFC North and it was going to happen on Thanksgiving night for all of the world to see.

    Circumstances have altered this game and as a result next week’s Cowboys game has a significantly different detail associated with it.

    Ravens/Steelers is now happening on Sunday which means the Cowboys will have an entire week of rest against the Ravens on a short one.....

    This would be an enormous advantage for the Cowboys if they play on Thursday as scheduled.

    Would not surprise me if they move the Ravens/Cowboys game to Sunday

    Hopefully a physical game against Pittsburgh softens up the Ravens. We will need every advantage we can get.

    Cowboys would need to win pretty big tomorrow to generate some conference title/playoff talk with the ease of schedule.

    Once I see this team actually take advantage of the breaks they get, then I will start celebrating breaks coming our way. In the Garrett era we came out of a bye week and laid an egg on the field several times. Hope things change with this coaching staff. If we do play the Ravens on Thursday, we might be able to save some watermelons.

    I don't think the short week matters all that much for a single game, especially for the way the Ravens play. Its' not as if they scheme much.

    The strength and conditioning coach is clinging to life in a hospital. Don’t think the team shares your view.

    If we play the Ravens on Thursday then they will be on a short week while we're not. If they delay the game until Sunday then the Ravens will be on regular rest but we'll have an extra four days. Either way we benefit to some extent.

    Not really. Something like this can understandably totally derail momentum for the season. It will be really interesting to see how they play tomorrow.

    Baltimore is getting hit with Covid.

    They said this morning they had 9 guys on watch and not playing.

    This either helps us or hurts us. If some do not return before our game..good.

    If they do get some of them back then we could be in trouble as they will need to play out of their minds to catch the Steelers.

    That would have to start with us when we play. They will be breathing fire for Dallas.

    Not potentially a pretty sight for us.

    Short week does not matter

    the Ravens defense is still a powerhouse and the thought of us chasing Lamar around for 60 minutes spells trouble

    Maybe up the middle, but I think Lamar has his work cut out, running outside against dlaw, gregory, and smith. It will be fun to watch.

    Sorry but I don't see it as " good news ", but more so a travesty of what our entire nation.. our entire globe has to take on and fight through.
    that NFL game change and reschedule also involves human health risk and endangered lives. and this is a crisis we cannot, never
    take it for granted.
    Its information news .. but considering the circumstances, I refuse to call it " good news." :(

    Let’s hope it’s not the “brakes” coming our way, lol. This league is completely unpredictable.

    Playing the Ravens under any circumstance doesn't make me feel like the Cowboys are catching a break in any form or fashion.
