    The issue is they don't. Earlier this year the Niners game was kept at the same time despite the big outbreak with one of the teams that week. The Raiders game was moves up with them having all those issues.

    I wonder if the NFL would shift this game to a "week 18" on an "as needed" basis, so if the game effects the standings for either team then play; and if it doesn't need to be played they just skip it.

    The downside of a forfeit is if the game isn't played then the CBA says the players don't need to be paid. Now Art Rooney II has said in the past that if the game were cancelled outright (aka forfeit) he would still pay the players regardless, because they did work that week in preparing for the game. Would be interesting to see if the Steelers did do that, would the Ravens do the same.

    There is no protocol. They're making it up as they go.

    Top priority is playing every game. Gotta get that TV revenue.

If the Steelers do go to 16-0 or 18-0 or even 19-0 there's no doubt it's because they had one of the league's easiest schedules of all time.
    wait, a Patriots fan, whose team had 6 games a year against the Bills, Jets, and Dolphins where in most years none of the 3 were much good...is going to talk about how easy the Steelers' schedule is?

    Everyone is....so...whatever.

    Just looked it up. The year the Pats were undefeated the Dolphins/Jets/Bills have a combined 12-36 record. Rest of the AFCN is 15-14-1 right now.

    Sounds like another positive test for the Ravens today; who it should be noted, did not close the facility Monday or Tuesday after finding out about positive tests.

    I really think after January 20th it'll probably be moot anyway, tbh. League probably be paused but we'll see.

    I bet they do some sort of large scale bubble. If not for the entire playoffs, maybe for divisional round through SB week. The large number of personnel will make it difficult, but maybe they can split into two bubbles for each conference, then move everyone to TB for the two weeks leading up to the SB.

    Not a bad idea, if they wanna ensure the best chance to complete the season.

    It's not fair that the Steelers are out here catching COVID, they should be forced to forfeit the remaining games
