This weekend’s Seahawks-Rams game is one of three affected by rampant Covid-19 outbreaks, and rescheduled by the NFL as a result.
The change was announced Friday morning that this NFC West matchup will move from Sunday to Tuesday, with a kickoff time of 4:00 pm PST. The game will remain on a FOX broadcast.
So, let’s get right to it. This development favors the Rams in a huge way, after all … it’s their organization with 25+ players currently in the league’s health and safety protocols.
Also, the Seahawks are faced with a short turnaround for their Dec. 26 game against Chicago, a game the league has said it will not move to accommodate Seattle for loss of prep and recovery time.
The real winners here? It’s obviously the Rams, who as of today don’t even have the minimum number of active players required to play. But this isn’t high school or college, there will be no forfeit since that would mean players also forfeit game checks.
So, the pendulum continues to swing in the Rams’ favor, as if they weren’t already a solid favorite in the game itself.
