Steelers-Titans rescheduled for Week 7, while Steelers-Ravens moved to Week 8

The NFL has tweaked its season schedule after the Week 4 matchup between the Tennessee Titans and Pittsburgh Steelers was postponed due to positive COVID-19 tests among the Titans. 

Pittsburgh and Tennessee will both have their bye weeks designated as this weekend, and their new game will be played Sunday, Oct. 25 (Week 7) at 1 p.m. ET (CBS). The Steelers were originally scheduled to play the Baltimore Ravens that weekend, but that matchup will move back one week to Nov. 1 at 1 p.m. (CBS).

Teams were informed Friday that they will not be allowed to leave their home cities during bye weeks, as daily coronavirus testing will still take place. A missed test will result in a $50,000 fine and a second missed test will trigger a one-game suspension without pay. 

NEW: NFL tells players and coaches that they can NOT leave town during their bye week and must report for daily testing.
