Pittsburgh Steelers battled Baltimore Ravens and COVID-19 yesterday (2 December) with the Steelers emerging victorious in a disjointed 19-14 victory. With the Pittsburgh region facing unprecedented challenges, STYX have joined to offer their support.
STYX have been linked with the Steelers for a number of years. With the song ‘Renegade’ an adopted team song, the band have also played the National Anthem at numerous match days over the years.
The band filmed a new socially distanced video for the track ‘Too Much Time On My Hands’, which you can see below, and they are asking fans for donations to the Pittsburgh Foundation Emergency Action Fund.
There are many large challenges, economic, health and human, in the global public health pandemic brought on by the COVID-19 virus and in Pittsburgh a local Emergency Action Fund has been created offering grants for emergency service providers and nonprofit organisations serving on the front lines of recovery.

As for the match, a COVID-19 outbreak in Baltimore had forced the NFL to push the game back three times, with the match eventually being played, unusually, yesterday afternoon.
The Steelers managed a disjointed 19-14 win over the undermanned Ravens, in the first NFL game on a Wednesday in eight years.
Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin said “To be bluntly honest, I’m really disappointed in our performance tonight. We did enough to win tonight, that’s all.”
