We have our first NFL COVID-19 postponement of the season. As Sunday’s game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Tennessee Titans has been postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak in the Tennessee Titans organization. All options are on the table for rescheduling including a Monday night double header or pushing the game further back.
Sunday’s game between the Steelers and Titans is being postponed per multiple sources. They are considering all options to reschedule, Monday night as one of them. This will all be based on test results.

We knew this was not going to be smooth nor perfect. Hopefully, this isn’t something we continually see this NFL season. But with the NFL being a contact sport, and the inablility to structure a bubble due to the amount of players and personell in an NFL team we might see this happen more often. The NFL is getting pretty serious with fining coaches who break the mast protocol. They will even get more serious including to Adam Schefter:
NFL sent another strongly-worded memo to team executives, GMs and HCs today, urging all to be in compliance with game-day protocols (wearing masks). “We will address lack of compliance with accountability measures that may include…suspensions and/or forfeiture of draft picks.”

All we can do is hope that somehow we can navigate our way through an NFL season.
