Wait a second. You mean there is a clear rule with a penalty associated with it and we're upset that they are penalized for breaking the rule?
Imma start complaining more that PI calls can happen, but no more yardage penalties!
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Packers had a player who was active in Week 9 test positive for COVID-19.
The Packers already have A.J. Dillon, Jamaal Williams, and LB Kamal Martin on the COVID list. The hope is the latest player to test positive didn't pass it to anyone on Thursday night. Coming off a short week, the Packers have a few extra days to get ready for Week 10.

Gruden clearly has a lax attitude about the pandemic. They need to get their shoot together.
The NFL will expand the 2020 postseason from 14 to teams to 16 if "meaningful games are canceled because of COVID-19."
It's a simple revenue trick in the event regular season media windows are lost. The NFL has so far had remarkable luck with the pandemic, but it could be running out. NFL positives are increasing as they skyrocket around the country, particularly in the midwest. Short of full bubbles, it will likely prove impossible to keep the coronavirus at bay. Playoff time could be the zenith of the pandemic in America, so none of this will be easy. As for this new system, teams will not be re-seeded, with division winners still awarded the 1-4 slots. Teams will also be eligible for the postseason even if they play fewer than 16 games, with the league adopting winning percentage instead of win/loss record.

Either way it's obviously bad but some clarification would be good
