PITTSBURGH, Pa. - When the 2020 NFL regular season schedule was released, the Washington Football Team was not slated for a primetime game. It's the first time since 1982 that's occurred. Due to COVID-19, that's no longer true.

While it's not true 'primetime', Washington will now play Pittsburgh on Monday Night, December 7th.

As a result of the Steelers' Week 12 game vs. Baltimore being shifted to Wednesday December 1st, Sunday's Washington at Pittsburgh game was pushed back a day. The contest will now be played at 5 p.m. on Monday December 7th at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.

Washington is 42-33-3 all-time against the Steelers, including a 22-20-0 record on the road. The Burgundy & Gold will attempt to snap a current six-game losing streak against Pittsburgh and earn their first victory against the Steelers since 1991.
