2020 NFL FOOTBALL

Thursday’s opening night game of the 2020 pro football season was an indication of things to come this year. The fans in attendance are capped at a small percentage of stadium capacity, the announcers work without having to deal with a lot of crowd noise, and the contact on the field – both the hard hits and the celebrations after a good play – leads invariably to thoughts of COVID-19 transmission. This is the first Sunday of this year’s NFL season, so see for yourself. Games played today include, on the national TV stage, the Los Angeles Chargers and Cincinnati Bengals (4 p.m. ET, CBS), the Tampa Bay Bucs and New Orleans Saints (4 p.m. ET, Fox), and the Dallas Cowboys and Los Angeles Rams (8:20 p.m. ET, NBC). That Cowboys-Rams game, scheduled as the official unveiling of the Rams’ grand new SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, CA, could be postponed – because of dangerously poor air quality due to California’s oppressive, still-spreading wildfires.
