    Default This weekend NFL games rescheduled due to COVID

    The NFL announced Friday that it has postponed three games from the Week 15 schedule as teams continue to deal with a rash of COVID-19 outbreaks.

    The league moved Saturday's matchup between the Las Vegas Raiders and Cleveland Browns to Monday, Dec. 20 at 5 p.m. ET, and the Seattle Seahawks-Los Angeles Rams and Washington Football Team-Philadelphia Eagles matchups to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 21.

    The schedule changes arrive as the Rams, Browns, and Washington currently have more than 20 players on the COVID-19 reserve.

    The NFL has reversed course from its position earlier in the year that, absent medical consideration or government directives, games would not be postponed or rescheduled due to roster issues caused by injury or illness that impacted multiple players

    The NFL could of moved up the Patriots/Colts to an earlier time. I don’t know how you East coast folks stay up to watch an 8:15pm start time. I’ll probably be asleep before end of game, and I’m Pacific time.
    why you so serious!

    Saturdays are not a big deal and although in recent months because i usually get off of work by 7pm or 8pm it does allow me to see some of the late games on Sun and Mon i used to really hate the start time on the east coast. Especially back when i had to be up by 5am but now i have more of a 7am get up time so late games are easier to digest now.

    Well, our entire QB core did decide to blatantly disregard the league's Covid policy. In fact, I don’t recall any of our QBs testing positive, they were suspended for that game as a disciplinary action. On the other hand, there has been on evidence whatsoever of any of the players or coaches on these effected teams have done the same. In fact, it’s been reported that at least a couple of coaches have gotten covid in spite of being fully vaccinated, including getting the booster. So, why would you punish someone who followed every rule, but still fell victim to misfortune anyways?

    I don’t know how can anybody know with certainty how and where somebody may have gotten COVID from.

    True, but when there's irrefutable visual evidence that you've disregarded any rules at any time (covid protocols and otherwise), there's going to be consequences.
