All types of unfair advantages for teams like the Chiefs getting two extra days’ rest in their showdown with Buffalo. Sacrifices are being made due to COVID, and this new schedule will stir brand new conversations.
COVID delays have proven to be an obstacle, but so far the NFL is finding a way. In order for these games to proceed as scheduled, there must be zero positive tests out of every 53-player locker room.
Major League Baseball struggled late this summer the way the NFL is struggling now, but we can expect an industry worth billions to figure it out. Not much practice is happening prior to these games so we’re expecting some sloppy football. Players would probably tell us they’d rather be rested. Either way, we’re happy to have football back!
