With the 2020 NFL season happening during a pandemic, we are getting football on non-traditional days.

The Baltimore Ravens will take on the Dallas Cowboys in a rare Tuesday evening affair. This game was initially scheduled to take place on Thursday Night Football, but after Baltimore dealt with several positive COVID-19 tests forcing its Week 12 matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers to be pushed back by six days to Wednesday of last week.

The good news for the Ravens is that quarterback Lamar Jackson is expected to be back in the lineup after missing the Pittsburgh game while on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Baltimore is 6-5 and sits in ninth in the AFC, behind the 8-4 Indianapolis Colts and Miami Dolphins, who currently hold the two wild card spots.

Dallas can climb out of the NFC East basement with a win and move to within a game of the division-leading New York Giants and Washington Football team, who are both 5-7 on the season. The 49ers are scheduled to play the Cowboys in Week 15’s Sunday Night Football matchup.
