The NFL is taking a tough stand when it comes to COVID-19 protocols this season in order to protect players, coaches and fans.  Commissioner Roger Goodell says the league will not be adding any games to the end of the season like they did last year.  That means that games won’t be rescheduled if a team has a COVID outbreak.

In fact, the league plans on forfeiting any games that can’t be played and the team with the COVID outbreak will be on the losing end.

The good news is that over 75% of the players are vaccinated and that more than half of the teams have 80% or more of their players vaccinated.
