Which Week 15 NFL games have been postponed because of covid-19?
NFL fans will have to wait a little longer to watch some of the season’s games, as there have been postponements this week due to covid-19 issues.
The recent increase in covid-19 cases throughout the NFL has caused the league to postpone some games of Week 15.
Saturday to Monday
The game between the Las Vegas Raiders and the Cleveland Browns scheduled for Saturday at 4:30 p.m. ET / 1:30 p.m. PT will now be held on Monday with kickoff at 5 p.m. ET / 2 p.m. PT. It will be broadcast exclusively on the NFL Network.
More than 20 players of the Browns, including 11 starters, have been added to the reserve/covid-19 list during the past week.
Sunday games postponed
Two Sunday games have been put off as well. The matchup between the Washington Football Team and Philadelphia Eagles will now take place on Tuesday with kickoff slated at 7 p.m. ET / 4 p.m. PT. The showdown between the Seattle Seahawks and Los Angeles Rams will also air at the same time. Both games will be broadcast on FOX.
Players from both Washington and Los Angeles have been undergoing covid-19 protocols the past week due to a big number testing positive for the virus.
