    As of this morning, there are 9 players listed on the Covid 19 list for the browns. Two have already been ruled out for Sunday and 7 players need to be cleared via testing. Hoping not for another Balt game scenario, the Browns played this past week without their starting WR core, so something to watch as week moves forward.

    #Browns LB B.J. Goodson tested positive late last week and several teammates were isolated as high-risk close contacts. Then yesterday, another player tested positive and two more close contacts were isolated. The facility is closed this morning after two more positive tests.

    They really can’t adjust this game with the playoffs starting the next week. They need to tell the Browns play who you have on your roster and ****ing deal with it. They can’t do this to the Steelers yet again this season it’s not right.

    Good. I hope games get pushed back. Give us like 2 weeks of rest and Chiefs will be sitting around for 3 weeks getting cold.

    We cant play them with new guys testing positive each day ..They booked different dates for the Superbowl so it looks like a schedule change is coming..2 weeks off would be good for our Vets

    Better not be pushed to Monday or later like before with another short week to prep for game 1. Who knows what this NFL regime is capable of doing.

    Browns forfeit and we're 13-3? Sounds good to me. Then a real bye week. See if NFL will actually does what they threatened they would during the season. I doubt anyone there has the gumption to make a decision like this.

    They absolutely would do that to us. Tuesday even. Steelers and Browns Tuesday, then we head to the postseason with minimal rest and less time to prepare.

    Already speculation going around that...

    A) Browns will end up playing short- handed ( sorry this has to be the only choice )
    B) Forfeit ( will NEVER happen, with playoff implications )
    C) Push the game to Monday or Tuesday...No ****in way! Screw the Steelers AGAIN, For something they didn't do!

    I saw on NFL netwrk that this outbreak is not as bad as the Ravens or Titans out break, and the NFL has no interist in pushing the game back........ TIFWIW:shrug:

    With everything that happened this year, I'm not surprised that this happens to us again - the very last regular season game.

    Then again, it's the Browns. The playoffs gift wrapped and handed to them on a silver platter two weeks in a row. They are doing everything they can to turn it down.

    They can't move Sunday's game unless they are going to move the playoffs back as well, something the league wants no part of doing. They will play it regardless of the status of the outbreak in Cleveland. If it is bad and still ongoing, they will make up some excuse, saying that the players not on the COVID list weren't really in close enough contact to be in danger of infection. Basically, they will ignore safety like they did when Dez Bryant tested positive the day of the Ravens' game with the Steelers and they didn't find out until after he had been in the locker room and pre-game warmups with his teammates.

    So hanging out in a hot tub together, not socially distancing and more than likely not wearing masks is perfectly ok but doing a 15 second ticckkeettyy tocckkiittyy dance is not, enough so that it may cost us a draft pick. Man that virus is crazy.:facepalm:

    If they were all in a hot tub together then not wearing a mask is prob the last thing I'd be worried about knowing what was going on in that hot tub that night

    Chiefs are already cold. This would give time for Andy Reid to design a whole new offensive scheme.

    The NFL operates on a swivel. They will say one thing and do something different in a span of 24 hours.
