Virtue signaling? Seriously?
Masks are 100% critical in preventing COVID if the NFL wants to have a season at all.
For someone to make that comment is just..... stupid.
The NFL made the correct move in straight-up postponing this game, no playing games with postponing it. The whole team gets quarantined.
Playing it could risk Pittsburgh players getting infected and then them infecting their week 5 opponent and so on, a full-on breakout. That would shut down the season.
I don't think the NFL will cancel the Vikings games until 1 player tests positive. They'll know soon enough since the virus takes 3-5 days to show up.
