The Corona variant Omikron causes game delays in American football

A wave of the Corona variant Omikron is also shaking up the schedule for the National Football League. The NFL, which otherwise closely follows its program, postponed three games at once on Friday.

The Cleveland Browns, who were particularly hard hit, are now allowed to host the Las Vegas Raiders two days later (23:00 CET) instead of this Saturday (22:30 CET) as originally planned. Sunday’s game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Football Team and the Los Angeles Rams and Seattle Seahawks has been pushed back to Wednesday (01.00 CET).

“We’re seeing a new, particularly contagious virus variant that has led to a large number of cases,” the NFL said.

The transfers were decided in consultation with the NFLPA Players Association. The Browns have about 20 names on the COVID list, including head coach Kevin Stefanski, regular quarterback Baker Mayfield and his representative Case Keenum.
