Is Ravens vs Cowboys on TV Today? Kickoff Time, TV and Livestream Info for Tuesday Night Game

Among the many domino effects the coronavirus pandemic has had on this NFL season, few are as evident as the sight of the league being forced to reschedule postponed games for days not normally associated with football.

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak that affected at least a dozen of their players last month, the Baltimore Ravens have become familiar with playing on days other than NFL's traditional Thursday, Sunday and Monday slots.

The Ravens played on Wednesday last week and host the Dallas Cowboys on Tuesday night, only the fourth time in NFL history a game has been scheduled for Tuesday.

While some games played outside the NFL's usual windows have been broadcast nationwide, others have not. For example, on Monday, the Pittsburgh Steelers game against the Washington Football Team was available only in selected markets.

If that sounds confusing, let us clear things up ahead of Tuesday night.

Is Ravens vs Cowboys on TV?

Yes. Not only is Dallas' first trip to Baltimore since 2012 broadcast nationwide, it has been treated to a primetime slot, albeit with the unusual kickoff time of 8:05 p.m. ET on Tuesday night.

While the Steelers game against Washington on Monday was only available across 40 percent of the country due to market regulations, the Ravens' first game against Dallas in four years will be televised by both FOX Sports and NFL Network.

The two networks have simultaneously broadcast Thursday Night Football since Week 5 and have retained the broadcasting rights to the matchup after it was postponed from last Thursday to this Tuesday.

That means the familiar voices of FOX Sports' lead play-by-play announcer Joe Buck and FOX Sports' lead analyst Tony Romo will call the game, with FOX's NFL Rules expert Mike Pereira joining in to clear up any issues related to officiating.

Is Ravens vs Cowboys available elsewhere?

Again, yes. Given the game is being treated as a traditional Thursday Night Football production, a live stream will be available on NFL Network website and NFL Network app on connected devices, FOX Sports Go, Amazon Prime Video and fuboTV.

Amazon Prime Video has held rights to live stream Thursday Night Football throughout the season and its coverage will feature Hannah Storm and Andrea Kremer. Prime members can also tune-in to the "Scout's Feed," which features Bucky Brooks, Daniel Jeremiah and Joy Taylor.

Why is the game being played on Tuesday?

Last week, the Ravens played the Steelers in the NFL's second-ever Wednesday game since 1950 after the cluster of coronavirus cases forced the league to postpone the AFC North rivalry three times from its original primetime slot on Thanksgiving Day.

The postponement led the league to reschedule both teams' Week 13 games, with the Steelers' matchup against the Washington Football Team moved from Sunday to Monday afternoon, while the Ravens' home matchup against the Dallas Cowboys was moved from Thursday Night Football to Tuesday.

For the first time in NFL history the league has held games on all seven days of the week. In October, the Tennessee Titans and the Buffalo Bills played only the third Tuesday night game in NFL history after the league was forced to reschedule it from a Sunday as the Titans were hit by a coronavirus outbreak.

Together with the usual Thursday, Sunday and Monday games, the NFL has also scheduled matchups on Friday—when the New Orleans Saints host the Minnesota Vikings on Christmas Day and Saturday—with the Detroit Lions hosting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Arizona Cardinals welcoming the San Francisco 49ers on December 26.
