Ravens' Lamar Jackson Tests Positive for Coronavirus

Ravens quarterback and reigning league MVP Lamar Jackson has tested positive for the coronavirus, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Rapoport announced the news on Thursday night: From @NFLTotalAccess: #Ravens QB Lamar Jackson tests positive for COVID-19. pic.twitter.com/Uq39b3tdtr — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 27, 2020 Jackson now joins at least a dozen other Ravens players and staff who have tested positive for the virus or come into close contact with someone who has tested positive for the virus. While the NFL’s competition committee took such preventative measures as expanding practice squads to 16 players and granting unlimited return from IR, among other things, to deal with an outbreak like the one currently happening in Baltimore, the Ravens scheduled game on Sunday against Pittsburgh is looking decidedly non-competitive.

Ratings for Midseason Sunday Night Football Game Trounces World Series Game 5

Major League Baseball’s big game lost in the TV ratings game to a midseason football game, as ratings for Game 5 of the World Series cratered. MLB’s fifth game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Tampa Bay Rays lost in viewership to the NFL’s Sunday Night Football, according to Show Buzz Daily. Game 5 of the World Series on Fox peaked with only an average of just over 8.5 million people tuning in, SportsNaut reported. Meanwhile, the Sunday Night Football game between the Cardinals and Seahawks on NBC peaked around 13.7 million viewers and a 4.1 rating among adults aged 18-49. Viewership-wise, the previous World Series games brought in more fans with Game 1 earning 9.2 million viewers, Game 2 a slightly less 8.95 million, 9.84 million for Game 3, and a bit better 10.21 million for Game 4.
