Could the NFL go to a postseason bubble format like Major League Baseball, the NBA and the NHL did for their playoffs?
All three other postseasons worked incredibly well in terms of negative COVID-19 tests, and while the NFL is adamant it will not go to a bubble at all during the regular season – the rosters are just too big, for one thing – there have been reports this week that it could play at neutral-site bubbles in Arlington (AT&T Stadium) and Los Angeles (SoFi Stadium) for the four divisional round games and two conference title games. That would obviously hurt the top seed in each conference by taking true home-field advantage away. Super Bowl 55 would stay as scheduled from Tampa, Florida. Stay tuned.
A handful of teams have won the Super Bowl with their backup quarterback, most recently the Philadelphia Eagles following the 2017 season with Nick Foles under center. Could the Dallas Cowboys actually win a title after losing NFL passing yardage leader Dak Prescott to a season-ending ankle injury in Week 5?
