NFL will force teams to forfeit games if outbreak of COVID-19 happens among unvaccinated players

• Sportsnaut

The NFL is now taking a huge step when it comes to attempting to have teams play 17 games during an 18-week schedule amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

As you already know, the powers that be within the league's office in New York City have been pushing for players and team personnel to get one of the three vaccines widely available to the American population.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians and former Dallas Cowboys legend Michael Irvin have been among the most outspoken critics of players who have opted to remain unvaccinated.

It now looks like the NFL is going to drastic measures to secure the full 2021 season.

That includes forcing teams to forfeit games should a widespread outbreak of COVID-19 occur among the non-vaccinated. This is not a drill. It's happening.
