Per Rotoworld:

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.

The league also announced that there were 56 new "cases" in November. Not sure what exactly that means. Does "cases" mean positives or does it mean close contact with someone infected?

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

Yeah I agree. Kind of a vague statement.

The Browns closed their facility Monday after a player tested positive for COVID-19.
Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski wouldn't say who the player is or whether the player played in Sunday's game against the Texans. The team shut down their facility last Friday after reporting a new positive COVID test. This could become the new normal for teams in regions of the country besieged by COVID-19 cases.

Relax, the Browns are just trying to force the NFL's hand into committing to that 4th wildcard team.

Looks like an all-clear, or at least 2020's version.

Raiders DE Clelin Ferrell (reserve/COVID-19) is expected to miss Week 11 against the Chiefs.
The Raiders will be down at lest one defensive starter after Ferrell tested positive. Lamarcus Joyner is a high-risk contact of Ferrell and could also be held out this week.


Not great timing with the Chiefs on deck
