The NFL has moved three games because of COVID-19 outbreaks: the Las Vegas Raiders vs. Cleveland Browns from Saturday to Monday; and the Seattle Seahawks vs the Los Angeles Rams and the Washington Football Team vs. Philadelphia Eagles from Sunday to Tuesday.

The Browns on Saturday could have been without as many as 16 players from the active roster, which has resulted in the game being rescheduled for a 5 p.m. EST kickoff Monday, according to the Associated Press

"We have made these schedule changes based on medical advice and after discussion with the [players union] as we are seeing a new, highly transmissible form of the virus this week resulting in a substantial increase in cases across the league,” the NFL said. "We continue to make decisions in consultation with medical experts to ensure the health and safety of the NFL community."
