If you were to ask Tom Brady, it may be a little early to act like COVID-19 is in the NFL’s rearview mirror.

As the NHL prepares for its first regular season of the COVID-19 pandemic, the league’s players will have to quickly become accustomed to a new normal of sorts in 2021.
It was only a matter of time before COVID-19 began to rear its head again in the midst of the 2020 NFL season, and it did so in widespread fashion as teams prepared for Week 12 to get underway.
A “Week 18” does seem inevitable for at least some sort of additional flexibility in the NFL’s schedule. But, don’t expect it to be the catch-all solution that many believe it to be, if and when it’s made official.
